Ukraine's Yushchenko hopeful of joining NATO

Yushchenko, who was in New York for the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, has been pushing for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to accept the Ukraine in an effort to ensure its sovereignty.

"If you analyze the history of Ukraine in the 20th century," Yushchenko said, "you will see that from 1917 to 1991 Ukraine declared its independence six times and five times we lost it."

He blamed the former Soviet Union for the reversals.
Canada and the United States have been strong supporters of the Ukraine's bid to join the 26-member alliance, established after the Second World War to counter Soviet expansion.

A former Soviet KGB agent has lost what could be his last legal battle to stay in Canada, after the Federal Court on Tuesday rejected his application for a judicial review.

Mikhail Lennikov wanted a federal judge to reconsider the decision of Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan to send him back to Russia.

Van Loan had ruled that as a former espionage agent, Lennikov was not eligible to remain in Canada. The Federal Court said Tuesday it has found there were no grounds to review Van Loan's decision.

Lennikov has argued that he was forced to work for the KGB as a young man because of his language skills, but that he fled the country years ago in part to get away from the espionage organization.

Lennikov's wife and son have been granted permanent residency on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, but Lennikov has been living in a Vancouver church since early June, when he sought sanctuary to avoid deportation to Russia.

He told CBC News on Tuesday he would not comment publicly on the ruling before speaking with his lawyer.

Obama rejects Russia missile link

The US president says his decision to shelve a missile defence plan was not dictated by Russian opposition.

"The Russians don't make determinations about what our defence posture is," Barack Obama told CBS television.

"If the by-product of it is that the Russians feel a little less paranoid... then that's a bonus," Mr Obama said.

President claims Kremlin is shielding his would-be killers

From their early days of trying to quiet any nationalistic fervour in Ukraine, the Kremlin has a long history of sending assassins outside their territory to do their job in killing anyone who tries to defy them. This went as far as last presidential election in Ukraine, where Putin and company were trying to hand pick the right person who would tow their line. Unfortunately it did not work.

The president of Ukraine has accused the Kremlin of harbouring the men he suspects of poisoning him when he ran for office five years ago.

Viktor Yushchenko, who was disfigured and nearly died, said Ukraine prosecutors wanted to question three main suspects believed to have fled to Russia. His requests for help have been repeatedly rebuffed by the Kremlin, he claimed.

“The people who organised my poisoning have been in Moscow for the past four years,” Yushchenko said. “I’ve appealed to the Russian president three times.”

But we know what the so called Russian president like to do instead, write threating letters to the Ukrainian president and its people.

Poland marks 70th anniversary of outbreak of WWII European war

Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko said in her address that Europe did not need any more divisions, hatred and lawlessness. "Instead, we need compassion, generosity and understanding for suffering."

Hopefully she can apply the same rule to her governing in Ukraine as Prime Minister, especially in the Ukrainian Parliment which has become a lawless zone.

Maybe, she can also apply this to recognising Ukraininan Insurgent Army who fought agaist the German as well as Soviet armies, for a free and Independent Ukraine, also not forgeting the Polish Soviet backed guerillas that now has been turned into a propaganda spin for Russia, exposing their lying ways.
