MOSCOW -- During a bitter political standoff, Ukraine's President Viktor A. Yushchenko issued a decree yesterday transferring control of Interior Ministry troops into his own hands and away from a minister loyal to his longtime rival, Prime Minister Viktor F. Yanukovich. The prime minister said the president's action was unconstitutional. Parliament, which is controlled by the prime minister's allies, passed a resolution declaring the decree legally void. It appeared, however, that Yushchenko had succeeded in firming up his authority over security forces, because the direct commander of the Interior Ministry troops, Gen. Oleksandr Kikhtenko, is considered his ally.

Playing Viktor Navorski, the hero of Steven Spielberg's new comedy-drama The Terminal, Tom Hanks pays homage to heart-tugging, acrobatic silent clowns like Charlie Chaplin and to absurdist, dough-bodied farceurs like Peter Sellers. Whenever the script gives him a chance, Hanks balances sentiment and slapstick as a traveler from the fictional Eastern European country of Krakhozia who gets stuck at New York's JFK airport indefinitely because rebels have toppled his home government and the United States hasn't recognized the new regime.

MOSCOW -- July was a good month for Russian President Vladimir V. Putin. First, the elusive Chechen separatist leader Shamil Basayev, who claimed responsibility for the most horrific terrorist acts of the past decade in Russia, was killed. His death July 10 allowed Mr. Putin to claim a victory in the global war on terror just ahead of the Group of Eight summit in St. Petersburg. The July 15-17 summit was another feather in the cap of Mr. Putin, who faced little of the expected criticism as he played proud host to President Bush and other world leaders in his hometown.

KIEV, Ukraine - Viktor A. Yushchenko was sworn in as Ukraine's new president yesterday, then returned to Independence Square minutes later to thank a sea of countrymen who launched a civil disobedience campaign that propelled his "orange revolution" into power. "Two months ago, at this square and into squares and streets all over Ukraine, millions of people came out to rally," Yushchenko said as snow began to fall. "The people have won a wonderful, peaceful victory." His tribute to tens of thousands who gathered here in the subfreezing cold one last time yesterday was a fitting coda to the political drama that drew the world's attention to this square, renewed animosities between Washington and Moscow, and now holds the promise of transforming this former Soviet republic into a Western-leaning democracy.

KIEV, Ukraine - The political crisis over Ukraine's disputed presidential election threatened yesterday to tear the nation apart as leaders of eastern provinces pressed demands bordering on separatism and opposition supporters pledged to block the departing president's movements if he didn't meet their demands. Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych and opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko warned that the bitter struggle over which of them was the legitimate winner of the Nov. 21 vote risked escalating into violence and regional conflict.

KIEV, Ukraine - The Supreme Court temporarily blocked publication yesterday of disputed presidential election results naming Prime Minister Viktor F. Yanukovych the winner, bolstering demands by pro-Western contender Viktor A. Yushchenko's supporters that he be recognized as president-elect. Many observers interpreted the court's technical ruling as blocking the immediate inauguration of Yanukovych, who is backed by Moscow. "This announcement of the Supreme Court means one thing - the people win!"

MOSCOW - As hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians besieged their parliament yesterday demanding that the results of a presidential election be set aside, Russian political figures cast the struggle there as one being waged between Moscow and Washington. Supporters of the opposition candidate, Viktor A. Yushchenko, swarmed through the streets of Kiev, the capital, while Yushchenko tried but failed to force parliament to declare him the winner. The government said it was recommending talks between Yushchenko and the official winner, Prime Minister Viktor F. Yanukovych, but no clear resolution was in sight.

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.
