UKRANIAN CEASEFIRE BROKEN, RUSSIAN TROOPS SEEN MOBILIZING ALONG BOARDER OF DOMBAS REGION

The fragile ceasefire agreed to in the Minsk Protocol to provide a peaceful solution to the conflict in the Donbas region of Ukraine appears to have been broken today as Russian backed-DPR troops captured the town of Marinka, only to be thwarted by a counter-attack by Ukrainian forces who reclaimed the city.

Early reports indicate that fatalities for the DPR likely number around 30-50, with significantly more wounded, while Ukraine's fatalities number around 10 with around 50 wounded.

Ukranian President Petro Poroshenko denounced the "flagrant violation of the Minsk Protocol" and vowed that "Ukraine would take every action to defend its territorial Sovereignty against renewed Russian-backed aggression."

Renewed tensions in the area threaten to re-ignite the dormant War in Donbas, and potentially increase the scope of the conflict beyond the Dombas region.

Experts worry that these renewed tensions may result in a more direct confrontation between Ukraine and Russia, and potentially provoke greater instability in the region.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has denounced the attacks as a Ukrainian "False Flag" operation, and have denounced "the Ukrainian Violation of the Minsk Protocol".

It remains to be seen if this is an isolated skirmish, or a breach of the peace that will re-ignite conflict in this volatile region.

Newly Appointed Prime Minister James Manning Gives Address Outside 10 Downing Street:

“Ladies and gentlemen,

Her Majesty the Queen has most graciously asked me to form a new government in Her name, and I have agreed so to do.

Before I speak about this new government, let me devote a few words to the departing administration of the last five years. In David Cameron and Nick Clegg the nation found two public servants who were able to navigate one of the most difficult economic and political situations in Britain’s history. Their statesmanship, their diligence and their willingness to come together from different political traditions in the national interest are values to which all of us in public life can aspire. Although few will agree with everything that government did, it is an undeniable truth that Britain today is in a very much better place than when that government came to office in 2010. In the context of Mr Clegg’s untimely passing this is particularly poignant, and I dedicate my remarks today to his family.

I want to lead a government which unites Britain and which delivers an opportunity agenda. By that I mean that my vision for this country is one in which every man, woman and child can go as far as their talents and hard work will take them, irrespective of their background or socioeconomic status. I want to build a country in which every child and young person gets a first-class education tailored to their needs, and in which a renewed commitment to lifelong learning ensures that adults of all ages are able to get the skills they need to advance themselves. I want to build a country in which the prospect of home ownership is a reality for all, not, as it is today, a pipe dream for so many. I want the United Kingdom to be the best place in the world to get a job, start a business, go to school or receive medical treatment. I want our National Health Service to be world-leading and our entrepreneurs to be world-beating. I want our children to be able to expect a better life than we have had; and I want Britain to be able to believe that her best days are ahead of her, rather than behind.

To deliver all of this, we must have a strong and stable economy founded on sound money. So my government will eliminate the budget deficit and balance the books within five years, finishing the job of getting Britain back into the black. With a dramatic hike in the minimum wage to ensure that a full time job always pays enough to live on, and tax changes which will take thousands of people out of income tax altogether, a minimum-wage worker will be £350 a month better off. Low taxes, rising wages, and more and better jobs: this will be the mantra of my new government. And as we extend the bounds of opportunity soul by soul, lifting people out of poverty and our nation into prosperity, we will build a country fit for our children to inherit: strong and influential on the global stage, and united and at peace at home. A million new homes, a thousand extra police officers, a fully-funded NHS and schools ready to face the future.

In this current political situation, I have been clear that different parties must work together in the national interest. I am delighted to have agreed a deal which sees a formal coalition revived between Conservatives and Liberal Democrats. William Croft will serve as my Deputy Prime Minister. And though I am certain we will have differences and things will not always be easy, we are committed to making this work as indeed it worked before: united in the cause of a greater Britain, a fairer Britain, a more prosperous Britain, and a Britain in which noone is left behind.

For I remember where I came from. I remember leaving school and working in a butcher’s shop all those years ago. I remember signing up to join the Royal Air Force. I remember starting my business in 1997 and working through the nights to see us expand and grow. And I remember coming into Parliament for the first time, wide-eyed and keen to make a difference. Now I have the great privilege of making a greater different than most. I will not waste it. I will not waste your trust. And I will not take it lightly.

Thank you.”

CHEMICAL WEAPONS USE ALLEGED IN ALEPPO ATTACK

Syrian opposition groups operating in Aleppo have reported nearly 250 dead following the widespread use of chlorine gas. Opposition groups reported that several Syrian air force helicopters dropped chlorine bombs on an opposition-held district of Aleppo. A spokesperson for opposition leaders said that the groups would do whatever possible to facilitate an Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) investigation of the incident.

Opposition forces reported that the Syrian air force helicopters were escorted by Russian aircraft operating within Syria. "There were very clearly multiple different types of helicopter," said one eyewitness.

Both the Syrian government and Russian military have denied any chemical weapons use in the recent attack in Aleppo.

Of the nearly 250 victims, an estimated 43 were children. Additionally 22 first responders reported symptoms consistent with chlorine gas exposure, one first responder is among the fatalities.

An OPCW spokesperson confirmed that the OPCW would take the necessary steps to investigate chemical weapons use.
