Calls for Peace in Venezuela; Russia Calls Ukraine an ‘Armed Mutiny’

Via :

CNN: As Venezuelan opposition leaders push for demonstrators to stay in the streets, “he who tires, loses” is their mantra.

Lilian Tintori de Lopez, the wife of jailed Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, held up a T-shirt showing the phrase before protesters Monday.

Beside her, opposition leader Henrique Capriles called for demonstrators to keep demanding change from the South American country’s government and described President Nicolas Maduro as “an error in the history of the country.”

Outrage at soaring crime and a tanking economy triggered protests earlier this month.

Washington Post Russian leaders expressed their distrust and dislike of Ukraine’s new government on Monday, saying it came to power through “armed mutiny,” just hours after the authorities here announced a nationwide manhunt for ousted president Viktor Yanukovych on charges of “mass murder of peaceful civilians.”

Russia questioned the legitimacy of Ukraine’s interim leadership, charging that it used a peace deal brokered by Europe to make a power grab and to suppress dissent in Russian-speaking regions through “terrorist methods.”
