DER SPIEGEL By Nikolaus Blome, Christiane Hoffmann, Ralf Neukirch and Christoph Schult Photo Gallery: Taking Sanctions to 'Level Four' After months of failed telephone diplomacy between Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin, hardliners are gaining the upper hand in discussions over the appropriate response to Russia. They may soon prevail with demands that go far beyond new economic sanctions. The official number is 25. That, according to the government, is how often German Chancellor Angela Merkel has spoken with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the telephone since last November. But there are estimates and evidence to suggest that there have been closer to 35 such chats. All of the conversations focused on Ukraine. A breakthrough was never achieved. Merkel's relations with Putin are considered to be closer than those enjoyed by most other Western leader with the Russian President. Yet positive outcomes from those ties have been nonexistent. The crisis in Eastern Europe, just two hours by plane from Berlin ...

Who needs Barcelona when you've got Bavaria? In boardrooms around the globe, football club owners will be instructing their Chief Executives to “get me a German”. Across assorted time zones it is no longer enough for a goalkeeper to have “safe hands”. Thanks to Manuel Neuer the era of “sweeper-keepers”, boasting strong lines in fancy footwork, is upon us. With the death of tiki-taka now rubber-stamped, aspiring football coaches will eschew study trips to Spain, instead flocking to a rather large patch of Europe stretching from the Baltic to the Alps. Anxious to replicate what Miroslav Klose describes as his country’s “Super Blend” of aesthetics and über-efficiency, the Foot ...

From across the Channel, the Atlantic, the other side of the globe, they are arriving, headed for the Normandy beaches where, 70 years ago, war exacted the ultimate price from their comrades. Now a dwindling band of brothers, D-day veterans from Britain, America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, in their late 80s and 90s, will join 17 heads of state for an official commemoration of the biggest seaborne invasion in military history. While celebratory fireworks illuminate Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword beaches, this week's 70th anniversary of the second world war events allow also for solemn reflection. Up to 600 British veterans and 350 from the US are expected to join commemorations, some of which will be be attended by world leaders including US President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and British head of state the Queen. Friday's international ceremony is at Sword, the most eastern of the five beaches, and assaulted by the 3rd British Infantry Divi ...

The sanctions toss-up between punishing Moscow over the Ukraine crisis and potentially ruining trade relations will top dominate the talks. The event was originally planned to take place in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi, in a G8 format including Russian leader Vladimir Putin, but the host was expelled from the Group of Eight over disagreement over the Ukraine and the political crisis there. For the next two days, the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US will discuss economics, trade and energy security amid the ongoing revolt in Ukraine. Energy ties with Russia are the issue of high importance for Europe, which gets almost a third of its oil and gas supplies from Russia. On the eve of the summit, there have been speculations ...

Very strong day in the Russian equity market. MSCI Russia was up 4.3% in USD. The two major blue chips stocks Gazprom and Sberbank were leading the way by being up 5% and 7.5% respectively. Angela Merkel was out early during the day calling for negotiations. In the afternoon Vladimir Putin called for pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine to delay the referendum on independence from Ukraine. This was fueling hopes for a de-escalation of the crisis in Ukraine. Putin also said that Russia pulled back troops from the Ukrainian board. NATO however has no indication of withdrawal of troops from the board. At the same time there was a harsh statement from acting chief of staff in Ukraine, Pashynski, that “all slovyansk militants will be killed or detained”. The hope for de-escalation was enough though to lift the market.

Vladimir Putin orders partial withdrawal of troops from border: Angela Merkel's spokesman
German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has demanded a stronger NATO presence in Eastern Europe. But that makes some in Chancellor Merkel's government uncomfortable. As the alliance moves to reassure eastern allies, Berlin considers its options. In last Monday's meeting of Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leaders in Berlin, the Angela Merkel spoke extensively about war and peace, including a detailed look at the Ukraine crisis. The chancellor also focused on her telephone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as the role played by US President Barack Obama. When she then turned her attention to NATO, many expected a mild rebuke for Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen. With her comments published in SPIEGEL a week ago, in which she urged NATO to show a greater presence on the alliance's external borders, von der Leyen dominated the German news cycle that weekend. Many interpreted her demand as a rhetorical escalation in the ongoing standoff with Russia and there was plenty of c ...
Nigel Farage says Vladimir Putin is the world leader he admires the most, and I can sort of get his point when you think the rest of the pack includes David Cameron (Moron), Nick Clegg(Traitor), Francois Hollande(Affair), Tony Abbott(Let's Cut down all the Trees!) Barack Obama (World Police) John Key (MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY!) The only decent ones seem to be Jose Mujica, Stephen Harper, Angela Merkel, and, dare I say it, Vladimir Putin, and I only say this because they're the only ones with any semblance of a BACKBONE remaining, the only ones with vision outside of the boundaries of profit. Yes, Putin invaded Ukraine for what he believed to be a just cause, and how did we respond? By putting sanctions on a SUPERPOWER that provides most of Europe with power and oil. (Also, notice how America is the one vying for most of the sanctions, BECAUSE THE SANCTIONS WON'T EFFECT AMERICA, THANKS OBAMA) World, you need to wake the *** up because you're day-dreaming into your own demise, who gives a toss what Farage t ...
Nigel Farage: I admire Vladimir Putin Ukip leader praises Russian President's handling of Syria crisis, but describes Germany's chancellor as 'incredibly cold' ￼Nigel Farage: 'As an operator, but not as a human being, I would say Putin. The way he played the whole Syria thing – brilliant.' Photograph: John Stillwell/PA Press Association Monday 31 March 2014 06.00 BST Nigel Farage has named Vladimir Putin as the world leader he most admires, praising the Russian President's handling of the crisis in Syria. But the Ukip leader had less kind words for Angela Merkel, describing the German Chancellor as "incredibly cold". He also said he saw little to choose between the leaders of Britain's three major parties, telling GQ magazine he does not give a *** whether David Cameron or Ed Miliband wins next year's general election. Farage's comments emerged just days after the Eurosceptic MEP said the European Union had "blood on its hands" for encouraging rebellion in Ukraine, Syria and Libya. While stressing he ...

You will find absolute slaps by a frustrated George W. Bush who was apparently played and tested by Mr. Putin, as the KGB operative simply played the part of a PMS wife in challenging everything Bush43 said by repeating it back to him. Bush43 thought it uniformed, when it was simply a brilliant negotiating technique. The worst of this was Bush43 calling Mr. Putin "cold blooded" to his face. The Obama regime has been far worse in disclosing confidential comments from German leader Angela Merkel in stating that "Putin was out there" and not in reality with other insults by Birther Obama. This is a disaster and it has been caused by the Americans completely by insulting Mr. Putin, and thinking Vladimir Putin is some puppet that must "think American". I will point out that Leonid Brezhev got up during negotiations with American Presidents as a tactic to throw them off, and act like he was not listening to them, and this humiliation of listening to an interpreter was what President Richard Nixon had to endure ...
The two-faced Germans are letting Putin wreak havoc By SIMON HEFFER PUBLISHED: 01:40 GMT, 8 March 2014 | UPDATED: 01:40 GMT, 8 March 2014 79 shares 176 View comments As Europe’s leading power, a global economic titan, and a nation that has sought since 1945 to set an example of peace and democracy, Germany ought to be at the forefront of demands for sanctions to be imposed on Russia after its outrageous behaviour in Ukraine. But it has signally failed to discharge its moral duty towards Europe. The main reason is self-interest because the German economy is massively dependent on Russia. Not only is Russia one of the main markets for its exports, but its industry and homes rely so heavily on the country’s gas and oil. What’s more, Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel (who grew up in a Soviet-controlled area east of Berlin) and her Kremlin counterpart Vladimir Putin (who once worked for the KGB in Dresden) have a pretty strong relationship. Too close for comfort: Angela Merkel with Vladimir Putin, on ...

Angela Merkel has told Vladimir Putin that a referendum on Crimea would violate international law. The Crimean parliament's decision to vote on joining the Russian Federation has only worsened the diplomatic stalemate.
UCRAINA AND RUSSIA Reuters) - Germany's Angela Merkel a rebuke to President Vladimir Putin on Sunday, telling him that a planned Moscow-backed referendum on whether Crimea should join Russia was illegal and violated Ukraine's constitution. Putin defended breakaway moves by pro-Russian leaders in Crimea, where Russian forces tightened their grip on the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula by seizing another border post and a military airfield. As thousands staged rival rallies in Crimea, street violence flared in Sevastopol, when pro-Russian activists and Cossacks attacked a group of Ukrainians. Russian forces' seizure of the region has been bloodless but tensions are mounting following the decision by pro-Russian groups there to make Crimea part of Russia. In the latest armed action, pro-Russian forces wearing military uniforms bearing no designated markings sealed off a military airport in Crimea near the village of Saki, a Ukrainian Defence Ministry spokesman on the peninsula said. The operation to seize Crime ...

A palm wine pot is not very beautiful, yet it plays with elderly people. I may not know much but one who looks ugly or unintelligent may be incredibly smart and advise important people. Things are not always as they appear. Why is the mainstream media not getting it right when it comes to foreign issues? This time it's CNN. I believe the president is not the only one who has faulted here; our congress has. And I agree with Prime Minister Lord Heseltine who dismissed calls for any action beyond sanctions against Russia, saying the West should "have a degree of humility on the idea that military intervention or something of that sort is going to solve anything. Whether we like it or not Putin has interest in Ukraine. I hate to read one sided news/reports on Russia. Vladimir Putin don't trust our president, Obama and Obama don't trust him either. Yes, Putin trust the Germans Chancellor, Angela Merkel and there can't be peace in Ukraine without Russia. We're missing the story. Why should we tell a sovereign n ...
So, it is reported that Angela Merkel (German Chancellor) advised Barack Obama that Vladimir Putin is "disconnected w/ reality", and "is not sane", in regards to Russia's actions toward Ukraine. However, it is also reported that of all European nations of the E.U./U.N., Germany is the one against a kick out of Russia from the "G8" (if I am not mistaken), and sanctions against her, the most!! Hmm...I wonder why?!!

The debate has raged across time zones: from the US and Latin America to Europe and to Asia. Barack Obama cancelled a trip to Moscow in protest at Russian President Vladimir Putin's protection of Snowden. Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff cancelled a state visit to Washington in protest at the US spying on her. Bolivian president Evo Morales's plane was forced down in Vienna amid suspicion that Snowden was being smuggled out of Russia. In Germany, a "livid" Angela Merkel accused the US of spying on her, igniting a furore that has seen the White House concede that new constraints on the NSA's activities may be necessary. Meanwhile, in Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron accused the Guardian of damaging national security by publishing the revelations, warning that if it did not "demonstrate some social responsibility it would be very difficult for government to stand back and not to act".

Email ftsales.supportto buy additional rights. tension that underlies the close economic ties between Germany and Russia burst into public view on Friday when Angela Merkel and Vladimir Putin temporarily cancelled their speeches at the opening of a major exhibition of Bronze Age treasures because of a spat over the looting of art works after the second world war. The exhibition – Bronze Age, Europe without Borders with more than 1,700 artefacts on display in St Petersburg’s historic Hermitage Museum – was supposed to mark the culmination of a Year of Germany in Russia after three years of co-operatio ...
Merkel and Putin view exhibition of disputed art: Germany's Angela Merkel and Russia's Vladimir Putin have visited an exhibition featuring art looted from Germany by the USSR in World War II. Reports said Mrs Merkel had intended to use the visit to the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg to ask for the items to be returned. But she toned down her remarks saying that Russia and Germany would continue talks about the issue. Mr Putin said the war art issue was "very sensitive". He said it was "hardly worth starting an argument now" and added that the two sides should seek "ways to resolve it". Mr Putin denied there had been any suggestion of cancelling the visit. "We had not cancelled anything, we just wanted to see if we would have enough time," he told reporters at a news conference with the German leader. Mrs Merkel, who was in St Petersburg to address the annual St Petersburg International Economic Forum, said it was an important step that the works were now on public display for the first time. "It gives ...

"It's Good to be the King" Mel Brooks in The History of the World These are hard times in Northern Ireland, where unemployment is rampant and Prime Minister David Cameron's corrosive austerity medicine is killing hope. Yet, the people of a depressed town named Enniskillen are rubbing their eyes in disbelief at a remarkable revitalization of their town centre. Practically overnight, a blight of abandoned stores has been transformed into a vibrant scene of reoccupied, fully-stocked shops enjoying a business boom. But wait: Having rubbed their eyes and peered closer, the denizens of Enniskillen see that this is not a miracle – it's a mirage. The spiffy new streetscapes are nothing but posters plastered over the old vacant buildings. Why this lie? Because Cameron, Angela Merkel, Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, and other heads of state are coming to the G8 Summit being held this month at a five-star, luxury golf resort just down the road from Enniskillen.

(HNS) FLAVOR GULCH, UT: In an apparent effort to turn a negative into a positive, the Romney campaign may be considering a new, targeted social media campaign. The campaign would assert the candidate's willingness to wrestle other world leaders to the ground and cut off their hair should they not agree to do what he wants. "That might work for German Chancellor, Angela Merkel," said an Obama campaign spokesman, adding, "What about Vladimir Putin? The guy's bald, and has a black belt in Judo to boot! We don't think so."
