Ukraine remembers famine horror
By Laura Sheeter
BBC News, Kiev

Ukraine famine
Up to 10 million may have died in the Ukraine famine

Ekaterina Marchenko is insistent.

"I can't have you leaving here hungry," she says. "Here, just have this bowl of soup, and maybe later you'll feel like having a sandwich, or a cup of tea and a piece of cake."

The hospitable 87-year-old cannot bear the thought of her guest being less than full, but then she has a horror of going hungry.

Seventy-five years ago, Ekaterina saw seven members of her family and almost all of her neighbours starve to death, in a man-made famine that killed millions of people in Ukraine.

Tree bark and roots

The "Holodomor" or "famine plague" as it is known in Ukraine, was part of Joseph Stalin's programme to crush the resistance of the peasantry to the collectivisation of farming.

Staff Writers
Putin greeting Prodi in the Kremlin on Thursday. Italy's Eni reiterated that it was ready to swap assets with Gazprom.

Russia and Italy on Thursday moved closer to building a joint natural gas pipeline under the Black Sea, a project that would reinforce Russia's standing as Europe's major energy supplier.

At a ceremony in the Kremlin, President Vladimir Putin and Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi blessed the setting up of a joint venture to carry out a feasibility study into the South Stream pipeline.

"The South Stream project has a strategic significance to ensure energy security for Europe," said Putin after Gazprom's Alexei Miller and Eni chief executive Paolo Scaroni inked the deal. The $14.8 billion project would send 30 billion cubic meters of Russian gas to Europe annually.

Russia may recognize both Abkhazia and S. Ossetia     
Moscow - The new Russian parliament may now recognize the independence of both Abkhazia and South Ossetia, said Boris Grizlov, leader of the United Russia, the party that emerged triumphant in the December 2 elections of.

"Both Abkhazia and South Ossetia held separate referendums in 1999 and 2006 on independence. Both countries submitted the results to Duma. We have their proposals that they be recognized as independent," Grizlov told a press conference in Moscow.

"We will carefully investigate the process by which Russians both in Abkhazia and South Ossetia cast their votes. We will then possibly discuss in January the matters of recognition of independence and the status of separatist areas," added Grizlov. (Agency Caucasus)

Independence jitters in Kosovo
There are fears things could go badly if the breakaway province declares statehood.

By William J. Kole

Associated Press
CAMP NOTHING HILL, Serbia - Suddenly, they are almost everywhere: NATO peacekeepers patrolling Kosovo in trucks and humvees. The increased presence is intended to reassure, but it's rattling nerves as the breakaway province gears up for independence.

"There's tension in the air - especially at night," said Dragan Jovanovic, 41, who lives in Sainovica, a Serb village in western Kosovo that is surrounded by ethnic Albanian settlements.

With some Serbian officials threatening violence if Kosovo declares statehood early next year, there are fears that things could go badly again in the Balkans. And if there is trouble, it is likely to happen here first, along northern Kosovo's desolate border with the rest of Serbia.

"I don't expect any major outbursts," said ...

Ending an Empire Over a Few Drinks

By David Marples

Sixteen years ago Saturday, the leaders of the three Slavic republics of the Soviet Union gathered at a hunting lodge in the Belovezhskaya Pushcha nature reserve near Minsk and signed an agreement that spelled the end of the Soviet Union. Boris Yeltsin of Russia, Leonid Kravchuk of Ukraine and Stanislav Shushkevich of Belarus signed the Belovezh Agreement, which created the Commonwealth of Independent States, on Dec. 8, 1991.

Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev maintained that the agreement was illegal, since it had been signed by only three of the 15 republics, and for four days after the Belovezh Agreement was signed, he continued to hold control over the Kremlin as president of the ...
