During his official visit to Poland on December 2 Ukrainian president Poroshenko decided to explain what is the reason for civil war in his country. In his opinion it is led to kill Soviet Union. Poroshenko stated:
“The Soviet Union exists not in a document, it exists in minds. And in this sense the Soviet Union is still not buried, I’m sorry for my frankness, but Ukraine is now fighting to bury the Soviet Union in the minds of some people, because another reason for the war just does not exist”.

Taking ‘Major Steps Towards Justice,’ UN Apologizes for Haiti Cholera Outbreak

Cholera victims rest at the hospital of MSF (Medecins sans Frontieres) on December 22, 2010 in Sarthe, a suburb in the north of Port-au-Prince.  The cholera outbreak, Haiti's first in more than a century, spawned deadly anti-UN riots last month as a desperate populace turned its anger on international peacekeepers accused of bringing the disease into the country.  A team of US and Haitian researchers confirmed last week that the outbreak was likely sparked by a human source from outside the region.

The Syrian Arab Army is now within sight of taking back all of Aleppo. For several years now, the eastern part of Aleppo – one of Syria’s oldest and most beautiful cities – has been in the hands of the armed opposition. The western part has been in the hands of the Syrian government. Now with the Syrian army hastily taking the Hanano as well as Jabal Badro and Baadeen districts, the corridor used by the opposition fighters to resupply them from the Syrian countryside and from across the Turkish border is now substantially closed. Apart from small pockets of hardened resistance, the bulk of Aleppo will soon be in the hands of the government.
