  1. Ukraine Remobilizes After Torture Death Claim

    Ukrainian leaders have thrown down the gauntlet in the wake of a politician’s death. The politician and another man were reportedly tortured before being killed, prompting Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov to launch military operations against rebels in the east. The U.S. is sending 600 troops to Eastern Europe for infantry exercises in a bid to reassure allies concerned by the crisis, and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry threatened further sanctions against Russia, urging Moscow to help calm pro-Russian separatists.
