Moscow to meet Ukraine for energy talks as European Union frees gas for Kiev 23.4.2014 DNA: Popular News
European and Russian officials will meet this week and next for emergency talks to try to prevent Moscow cutting off gas supply to Ukraine, as Europe explores how to pump more gas to the struggling country. Moscow has nearly doubled the natural gas price it charges Ukraine and threatened to cut gas supplies for non-payment of debt since a new pro-Western government took over in Kiev in February. It has also annexed Ukraine's Crimea region and voiced support for pro-Russian separatists who have seized control of government buildings and set up road blocks in parts of eastern Ukraine. The talks next week are another attempt to bring Ukraine and Russia to the negotiating table as a previous agreement struck in Geneva last week to de-escalate tensions between the two neighbours unravelled. The preparations for negotiations follow calls from Ukraine's acting president, Oleksander Turchinov, for government forces to relaunch an offensive against pro-Russian rebels. In the first round of talks on Thursday, the ...

Let's take politics out of the food banks debate | John Glen 22.4.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Too often the discussion becomes a polarised political argument. What is needed is a dispassionate look at long-term causes Earlier this week the Trussell Trust released its annual figures showing its food banks had handed out 913,000 parcels of emergency food up from 347,000 last year. I am proud to represent the Trussell Trust , which was founded in Salisbury. It does an enormous amount of good across the nation and meets an emergency need for many vulnerable people. I look forward to working with it on a joint paper for the all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on hunger and food poverty about how a food bank that started in a garden shed has now become the dominant franchise model for communities across the ...

Boko Haram will continue to rampage while Nigeria tackles accountability 21.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Nigeria's new 'soft approach' to counter-terrorism is a much-needed step, even if protecting citizens remains an immediate concern The devastating April terrorist attack on a bus station in Abuja will once again stir fears among Nigerians of the power and reach of Boko Haram , and further erode already dwindling confidence in the ability of the federal government to contain and address the crisis. There had not been an attack on Abuja since 2012. By May 2014, Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states in the north-east, which together comprise an area almost two-thirds the size of the UK, will have been in a state of emergency for one year. The major military offensives under emergency rule succeeded in flushing Boko Haram members out of urban centres, particularly the Borno state capital of Maiduguri. But the group's members have instead been rampaging through the countryside, killing and destroying as they go . Well in excess of 1,000 people have been killed in Boko Haram-related violence in 2014; it has also ...
