In a phone call with Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin has said that imposing sanctions on Russia is counterproductive and affects international stability. The two presidents agreed that the current situation is not in the interests of their countries.
Both Obama and Putin has emphasized the importance of an “immediate and sustained ceasefire” in eastern Ukraine, but at the same time noted that “significant differences” remained between Moscow and Washington over Ukraine, a Kremlin statement said.
Besides Ukraine, the two leaders touched upon the recent rounds of sanctions imposed on Russia by the US.

Dutch experts who have taken the leading role in the MH17 plane crash investigation are not able to reach the crash site in eastern Ukraine, a spokesperson of the Dutch Safety Board told RT.
RT:Have your experts already been to the MH17 crash site in the Donetsk Region?
Wim van der Weegen: No, our Dutch investigators have not been there yet. Since the Dutch Safety Board took over the leadership of the investigation on July 23, there has been no possibility for us to visit the crash site.
RT:Why is there no possibility? Are there security reasons behind that?

Abusive treatment and rampant victimization of whistleblowers has created a climate in which large segments of defence and health workers would be afraid to report departmental malfeasance, the powerful all-party Public Accounts Committee has revealed.
The report, issued on Friday, said that one in three civil servants didn’t know how to raise concerns under the Whitehall code, and warned that fears of punishment would deter employees from exposing wrongdoing.
The statements come following a series of high-profile malpractices exposed by whistleblowers in the public sector, including the Mid-Staffordshire NHS scandal, in which over 1,000 patients died as a result of poor care and mismanagement.
A freeze on new World Bank projects in Russia would be aimed at punishing President Putin’s action over Ukraine, and may affect planned spending of $1.5 billion.
This measure was agreed by deputy finance ministers from the G7 during a conference call last week, reports Bloomberg citing three government officials familiar with the plans.
The move comes amid fresh rounds of far-reaching sanctions targeting Russia’s banking, energy and defense. The EU and US have been insisting Russia was destabilizing the situation in Ukraine, even though Moscow repeatedly denied any involvement in the conflict.

Looks like it will be a busty weekend for European leaders calling the crisis over. Knife-catching ‘value’ investors have been torn asunder as Banco Espirito Santo’s stock crashed another 40% today to 12c and has now been suspended by Portugal’s securities regualtor.
With Goldman bailing and the sovereign suggesting it is not willing to bailout, it appears – based on Sub debt’s collapse – that a bail-in burden-sharing solution is coming. When will Bill Miller scoop it up?
Uganda’s highest court annulled a controversial anti-gay law that punished homosexual activity with up to life imprisonment. The court ruled that the bill was passed illegally late last year while opposition also claimed it violated fundamental rights.
“I can confirm the anti-homosexuality law has been struck down. The judge said there were irregularities in the process of its enactment and also there was no quorum in parliament,” said Nicholas Opio, a lawyer for a group of 10 Ugandans – including two Ugandan rights organizations – opposed to the law who petitioned the constitutional court to declare the strict law invalid.
The panel of five judges ruled that the bill was passed by the Ugandan parliament in December without the necessary quorum of lawmakers, as at least three of MPS opposed the legislation. Thus, the bill was ratified and signed into law by President Yoweri Museveni back in February illegally.
