Where Is Putin?

The Russian leader has been missing in action. On Thursday, Putin’s spokesman announced that the president would not attend a meeting with the Federal Security Service (FSB), which he usually attends.

No more Mr. Nice Guy for Vladimir Putin. From now on, Muscovites will have to get by on kasha, kalduny and borscht instead of Big Macs and fries. Russia’s consumer watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor, has shut down all four Moscow McDonald’s, including the restaurant at Pushkinskaya Square which, at one time, was the largest McDonald’s in the […]

Pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine shot down a Ukrainian government MiG-29 fighter jet in the Luhansk region, according to a military spokesperson quoted by Reuters.
