Ukraine Crisis


In November 2013 the Ukrainian goverment decided not to sign an association agreement with the European Union. This decision led to massive protests throughout the country. Kiev's Independence Square (also known as Maidan Nezalezhnosti) was at the center of the protests. The originally peaceful demonstrations against pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych turned into violence in February. Many people have been killed in street fighting. Interior Minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko said that the Ukrainian police force has been given combat weapons for use in the civil unrest in Kiev.

Tennis French Open Grand Slam


The French Open tennis tournament is the world's premier clay court tennis championship event - often referred to as Roland Garros, as it is named after French aviator and fighter pilot Garros. The major event, which is being played in two weeks at Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, is the second of four annual Grand Slam tournaments which are the most important tennis events in the world. Due to the red clay surface, which makes play slower than grass or hard courts, the tournament is widely considered to be one of the most physically demanding tennis competitions worldwide, requiring the best tennis from each player to reach fame and glory like previous French Open legends Max Decugis, Suzanne Lenglen and Chris Evert or current holder Rafael Nadal.
