Armenia has raised the prospect of asking Russia to intervene

Armenia has raised the prospect of asking Russia to intervene in an escalating military conflict against Azerbaijan, which is backed by Turkey.

Dozens of people, including civilians, have been killed since fierce fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces erupted on Sunday on the front lines of Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed mountainous region north of Turkey and Iran.

The killing took place in the district of Kesan in the north-western Turkish province of Edirne.

Uslu told the court that it was his daughter’s fault, saying she insulted her mother when she arrived home and then argued with him when he ordered her to be respectful.

What is clear is that the vaccine race has become another front in the standoff between Russia and the west. It is no accident that Russia has named its vaccine Sputnik V, harking back to the Soviet satellite sent into orbit in 1957 amid fierce competition with the US. For Russia, providing the first solution to a pandemic that has affected every corner of the world would be seen as a confirmation that the country’s scientific brains are still among the world’s best.

“It’s like the space race half a century later. If indeed it’s a success story and Russia is the first country to come up with an efficient vaccine then of course it’s a major PR opportunity,” said Andrey Kortunov, who runs the Russian International Affairs Council in Moscow.

Ukraine police spokeswoman Anna Zubereva said they were searching for a male suspect aged in his 30s or 40s, between 6′ 2″ and 6′ 5″ tall, dressed in black shorts, dark blue sneakers and a T-shirt with dark hair trimmed short on the sides.

Ms Zubereva said the victim, in running gear with headphones, was found with identity documents of a co-worker at the US Embassy sharing the same name.

“We are all devastated at this time.”

According to neighbours, Ms Tuhakaraina was sharing the property she lived in with workers from a local shearing company.
