Ukrainian leader felt Trump pressure before taking office

Aug 4, 2020

KYIV, Ukraine — More than two months before the phone call that launched the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Ukraine's newly elected leader was already worried about pressure from the U.S. president to investigate his Democratic rival Joe Biden. Volodymyr Zelenskiy gathered a small group of advisers on May 7 in Kyiv for a meeting that was supposed to be about his nation's energy needs. Instead, the group spent most of the three-hour discussion talking about how to navigate the insistence from Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for a probe and how to avoid becoming entangled in...

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

Aug 4, 2020

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

The Latest: British govt insists there is Brexit progress

Aug 4, 2020

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 10 a.m. The British government says talks with the European Union are making progress, despite the lack of a breakthrough overnight. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office says talks are resuming Wednesday after a "constructive" session that lasted late into the night in Brussels. Johnson is eager to strike a deal at an EU summit starting Thursday so the U.K. can leave the bloc in good order on the scheduled date of Oct. 31. But both sides say gaps remain over plans for maintaining an open...

Bulgarian prime minister condemns soccer racism

Aug 4, 2020

SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov condemned the racist behavior of his country's soccer fans on Tuesday, a day after the national team played England in a European Championship qualifying match. Local fans made Nazi salutes and directed monkey noises at the black players on England's national team. England won 6-0, but the match was halted twice in an effort to stop the abuse. "It is unacceptable that Bulgaria, one of the most tolerant countries in the world where people of different ethnicities live in peace, to be associated with racism and xenophobia," Borissov wrote in a post...

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Aug 4, 2020

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....
