I can't believe The Sun published a picture of the women's rights group Femen with a caption locating the city of Kiev in Russia ("News Briefing," July 29). To my knowledge Kiev has been, and still is, in Ukraine. If your newspaper cannot print correct information, you shouldn't print anything at all. From now on, any information printed in this newspaper I cannot believe to be truthful. Lydia Sushko-Teluk

In the wake of Russia's increasingly belligerent behavior in Ukraine, President Barack Obama delivered a ringing declaration of NATO's support for the Baltic countries Wednesday in the capital of Estonia, a former Soviet Republic and current NATO member that also has reason to fear Russian aggression. Mr. Obama vowed the U.S. and NATO would honor the alliance's pledge of collective defense and back it up with a beefed-up troop presence and air patrols. He also pointed to NATO's decision to create a rapid reaction force and pre-positioning of military equipment in the region as evidence of the alliance's resolve to defend its members.

News about Ukraine is disturbing, but it's time the European Union takes control of the matter and the United States stays in the background ( "Moscow's Achilles heel," April 17). I don't like what's happening in the region, but there's no need for President Barack Obama to "wave the bloody shirt or rattle sabers. " We've seen what happens when this country leads the charge in far-off conflicts. Regarding your suggestion the U.S. and the European Union nations go after assets of wealthy Russian citizens, this should never be on the table.

KIEV, Ukraine -- The world did not end yesterday, but for many disconsolate families here it might as well have.The city was filled with mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters who came to Kiev in search of relatives who had disappeared over the past year to join the Great White Brotherhood cult.Cult members had said the world would end yesterday, after the resurrection from the dead of Maria Devi Khristos, whom they said was Jesus Christ returning for the Second Coming."Today is off," Valentyn Nedryhaylo, deputy interior minister, proclaimed yesterday.

Among unlikely success stories in music, consider this one. The music director of a church in Orlando, Fla., visits Kiev in Ukraine in 1992 to conduct the first Handel's "Messiah" performance there since the fall of the Soviet Union. He likes the experience so much that he decides to pack up his family in Florida the next year and move to Kiev, where he creates an orchestra of 60 and a chorus of 115. While he's at it, he also founds a church and gets ordained as its pastor. The orchestra and chorus flourish in Ukraine, performing sacred classics - Bach's B minor Mass, requiems by Brahms and Faure, etc. - that had been banned by the communists, as well as standard repertoire.

Looming on inbound I-279 like a public-housing complex in Kiev, the Fort Pitt Tunnel has traumatized motorists since its completion in the year 937 A.D. OK, it was 1960. But it looks older. Congested, narrow, dimly lit and more than 3,600 feet long, it's a claustrophobic's nightmare. Sure, there's a terrific view of the Pittsburgh skyline when you finally emerge from the thing. But at what cost to your sanity?

When Washington Capitals left wing Dimitri Khristich went home to Kiev, Ukraine, last summer, he was warned to be on guard for extortionists."I had heard Alexei Khristich of the L.A. Kings had had some trouble," said Khristich, who has been told by general manager David Poile to let the Capitals know if he has any trouble. "But no one knew I was in Kiev, and I had no trouble. When I saw Khristich here after our game with Los Angeles, he said it had happened, but it was over."Khristich told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that he was targeted for extortion last summer in his homeland.

KIEV, Ukraine - The Ukrainian prosecutor-general's office announced yesterday that it had reopened an investigation into allegations that presidential candidate Viktor A. Yushchenko was poisoned, after doctors in Austria confirmed he had ingested dioxin. Returning to Kiev after checking out of a clinic in Vienna, Austria, Yushchenko said he was sure that authorities were responsible for the dioxin poisoning that had disfigured his face and caused other symptoms. "I am convinced that this is the work of the authorities, absolutely convinced," Yushchenko told reporters at a Kiev airport.

Kiev, Ukraine -- The most important part of President Clinton's trip to Moscow may be his after-trip to Kiev.The reason is this. As Ukraine goes, so go Poland, Russia itself -- and even Europe. Ukraine, with a territory and population the size of France, is the involuntary guarantor of Warsaw's security, of Moscow's non-imperial identity, and of Central Europe's peace.After teetering on the verge of what the CIA thought might even be civil war a year ago, Kiev looks miraculously like fulfilling those roles today.

With Russian troops amassed along its border and Kremlin-backed separatists in control of major cities in eastern Ukraine, the government in Kiev is facing the gravest threat to its survival since the breakup of the former Soviet Union a generation ago. Unless the U.S. and its allies can convince Russian President Vladimir Putin to step back from using the unrest there as a pretext for military intervention, it looks more likely than ever that eastern...

The new Ukrainian government in Kiev is under mounting pressure to keep the country from unraveling as pro-Russian demonstrators in Kharkiv, Donetsk, Lugansk and other eastern cities occupy government buildings and demand to be reunited with Moscow. Whether or not this is prelude to a replay of Russia's lightning takeover of the Crimea last month, President Barack Obama and European leaders must make absolutely clear to Russian President Vladimir Putin that his country will pay a heavy price for any attempt to change the map of Europe again by force.

Regarding "Putin ready to invade Ukraine; Kiev warns of war" (March 1), there's little chance that Russian President Vladimir Putin will be misled by President Barack Obama's warning, since it's well known that Mr. Obama's inner circle of senior advisors relish diplomatic language. The dreadful finality about a confrontation with Russia makes Mr. Obama's warning laughable. The absence of a robust U.S. foreign policy will make it difficult to cull together a believable U.S. response.

The violence in Ukraine struck a home in Roland Park when Marta Zahalak began hearing from relatives through email and Facebook about her late husband's nephew, a physicist who was killed after traveling hundreds of miles to Kiev for anti-government protests. "We were in shock," said Zahalak, who was born in western Ukraine and came to the United States more than 50 years ago. "I knew his mother very well - they were very pro-democracy. " For Zahalak and many others of Ukrainian ancestry in the Baltimore area, the political turmoil halfway around the world hits close to the heart.

The United States has switched from vinegar to honey in its drive to secure Ukraine's compliance with nuclear arms treaties that would eliminate its portion of the old Soviet arsenal. In a visit to Kiev this week, U.S. envoy Strobe Talbott assured his much-affronted hosts that Washington would treat Ukraine with the dignity it deserves as the world's third ranking nuclear power and an important European country larger than France.Mr. Talbott's gesture marked a turn-around from President Clinton's refusal to meet with the Ukrainian prime minister in March and his insistence that Ukraine's ratification of the START treaty was "a precondition to a long-term successful relationship."

KIEV, Ukraine -- The choice for Ukrainians electing a new president yesterday couldn't have been more stark: Back a reformer bent on integrating the former Soviet republic with the West, or side with a tough-minded prime minister poised to nestle the country deep under the Kremlin's wing. The race for president between Western-minded Viktor Yushchenko and Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych put on voters' shoulders the most significant decision the country has faced since it gained independence from the Soviet Union 13 years ago. Yesterday's election was needed after neither candidate garnered the majority needed in the Oct. 31 presidential election to avoid a runoff.

KIEV, Ukraine -- Less than a year and a half ago, Viktor A. Yushchenko became president of Ukraine in a peaceful revolution and declared the beginning of a new political era that seemed destined to take firm hold and influence Ukraine's neighbors. He has been proved right, even as democratic change has followed a course that Yushchenko and promoters of civil society didn't expect. On Sunday, Yushchenko's party placed third in the first parliamentary elections since he became president.
