Russia announces US rejection of Security Council proposal on eastern Ukraine

Moscow’s UN envoy said the United States and Ukraine had informed Moscow that they would not participate in discussing a Russian proposal to deploy peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine, the Tass news agency reported.

Russian President Vladimir Putin this month proposed the deployment of UN peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine to help protect ceasefire monitors currently supervised by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and help end the conflict between Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed separatists who have killed more than a dozen Thousands of people since 2014.

Putin said at the outset that peacekeepers should be deployed along the line of fighting between Ukrainian troops and pro-Russian separatists before he later said they could also be deployed in other areas where OSCE monitors were operating.

But Washington and Kiev also want to deploy peacekeepers in Ukraine’s border regions with Russia, which is not controlled by Kiev.

Tass quoted Monday Russia’s UN envoy Vasily Nibenzia as saying that the United States and Ukraine had formally notified Russia at the UN Security Council that they did not intend to participate in the preparation of the Russian draft resolution on Ukraine because they had many objections to it.

“The United States and Ukraine delegations said after the first round of negotiations that they were not prepared to work on the (Russian) text in the future,” the agency quoted Nebenzia as saying.

“They have great objections and the Ukrainian delegation may have a counter-proposal on deploying peacekeepers in Donbass (eastern Ukraine),” he said.

But Nebenzia added that Moscow refuses to give up its proposal, but will go ahead with its offer to the Security Council when conditions become favorable.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage.

This is w…
