But every setback is also an opportunity for Mourinho and he used the news to take a sly dig at Manchester City by insisting that the TV schedule would not influence his team selection. "Last season the then Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini faced a similar proposition when City travelled to Stamford Bridge in the fifth round on a Sunday before flying to Ukraine to take on Dynamo Kyiv on the Wednesday in the Champions League," explains The Guardian. The City boss fielded a second string side, including several unheard-of youngsters, who were beaten 5-1. But the sheer number of matches facing Mourinho as they battle on three fronts could mean he is forced to make changes. And that could serve to shed more light on his long-term plans, with the likes of Luke Shaw set to discover if they have any chance of ever breaking back into the first team on a regular basis.

Officers of Ukraine’s SBU security service have freed Oleksiy Honcharenko, a 36-year-old lawmaker of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko faction in parliament who was reported missing earlier on Feb. 23. According to prosecutor of Odesa Oblast Oleh Zhuchenko, Honcharenko had participated in a sting operation to catch three suspects who had threatened to blind the deputy and break his knee-caps. “Now he’s safe and testifying as a victim (of a crime),” said Zhuchenko, adding that the police had seized a hammer and a quantity of acid. The suspects had been planning the kidnapping of Honcharenko for long time, the prosecutor said during a briefing. “Those who ordered the kidnapping wanted to harm (Honcharenko), but as they were afraid and did not have the skills to abduct him themselves, they started to look for executors of kidnapping and delivery,” Zhuchenko said.

I recently accepted an invitation to participate on a (literally) flying press visit to the vineyards of Romania. Having ascertained where in Romania we would be visiting, I also realised just how big this central European country was!Surrounded by Moldovia, Ukraine, Hungary, Serbia and Bulgaria, Romania is a country that in the past has been greatly influenced by some or all these nations. Climates vary from province to province but with a southern European aspect it could be described as...

I detect some panic on their part, but instead of trying to find a solution to this problem, they are going in the opposite direction and trying to provoke a new conflict, hoping that the U.S. will intervene and side with them and that this will undermine the positive relations that Trump is seeking to develop with Putin. This is an incorrect strategy and it will not succeed. Europe cannot handle a war in the Ukraine. I think German Chancellor Angela Merkel understands this and Putin clearly stated this to her, that the Ukrainian government must halt these actions and sit at the negotiating table again and enforce the Minsk Protocol . For the time being, I think Russia is holding steady with regard to the Ukraine and wont make a move, because Russia knows, as does the EU, Merkel, and Trump, that the Ukraine is in a difficult situation. It’s a failed state.

VIENNA, Austria Ukrainian billionaire oligarch Dmytro Firtash received a double shock on Feb. 21. First, an Austrian judge at the Vienna Court of Appeal ruled to allow his extradition to the United States to face bribery charges in Chicago. Then the oligarch was arrested by plain-clothed Austrian police officers outside an elevator in the court hallway, seconds after leaving the courtroom. The day's events came as a surprise to his supporters and critics alike, who had expected the judge to let him go. Austria's Ministry of Justice must make the final decision regarding his extradition to the US. But the determination will be suspended until a decision is made regarding the Spanish request. Firtash has been living in effective exile in the Austrian capital since he was arrested in March 2014 at the request of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation for allegedly trying to offer an $8.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Feb. 23 did not pass an amendment to the draft law, titled On inheritance taxation (No. 0940), which provided for the elimination of the existing confusion over the legitimacy of work conducted by the tax militia prior to the creation of the financial police. I ask you to support the amendment. We can not liquidate this tax agency. There must be a special procedure, providing for the transfer of all cases from one agency to the other, the head of the Rada's committee on taxation and customs policy Nina Yuzhanina said after tabling the law in parliament on Feb. 23. Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk said restoring the legal status of the tax militia would lead to a delay in creating the financial investigation service [agency]. I think that the tax militia is a repressive organ that pressures business, which does not reduce the number of financial crimes.

A purported cyber hack of the daughter of political consultant Paul Manafort suggests that he was the victim of a blackmail attempt while he was serving as Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman last summer. The undated communications, which are allegedly from the iPhone of Manafort’s daughter, include a text that appears to come from a Ukrainian parliamentarian named Serhiy Leshchenko, seeking to reach her father, in which he claims to have politically damaging information about both Manafort and Trump. Attached to the text is a note to Paul Manafort referring to “bulletproofevidence related to Manafort’s financial arrangement with Ukraine’s former president, the pro-Russian strongman Viktor Yanukovych, as well as an alleged 2012 meeting between Trump and a close Yanukovych associate named Serhiy Tulub. “Considering all the facts and evidence that are in my possession, and before possible decision whether to pass this to [the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine] or FBI I would like to get your opinion on this and maybe your way to work things out that will persuade me to do otherwise,” reads the note.
