In an odd collision between art, fairy tales and an as-yet unfilmed reality show, a Ukrainian-born artist staged a live re-creation of the "Sleeping Beauty" story inside the National Art Museum in Kiev. Inside a dimly lit upstairs gallery, the Canadian-based artist Taras Polataiko presented five attractive women who took turns sleeping on a stark, satiny bed for two hours each day. In keeping with the story, each woman pledged to marry the person who wakes them with a kiss for Polataiko's "Sleeping Beauties.

MOSCOW -- Ukraine's interim government on Tuesday made good on threats to move against pro-Russia separatists occupying eastern cities, prompting Russian President Vladimir Putin to demand U.N. condemnation of the use of force in the neighboring country. In a call to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Putin "emphasized that the Russian side expects the United Nations and the international community to clearly condemn the Kiev authorities' anti-constitutional military operation in Ukraine's southeast," the Itar-Tass news agency reported . Russia-backed militants who have seized government and security facilities in at least 10 towns and cities in eastern Ukraine were under fire in the city of Slavyansk, Russian news media reported, casting the operation to recover Ukrainian government control as a violent strike against civilians.

RIYADH - Russian President Vladimir Putin called President Obama Friday to talk about a “U.S. proposal for a diplomatic resolution to the crisis in Ukraine,” the White House said in a statement. Putin called to discuss a proposal put forward by Secretary of State John F. Kerry, the White House said. Kerry presented a plan to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov earlier this week. The statement did not detail the proposal, but said it was being developed with Ukrainian and European partners.

WASHINGTON - The top U.S. and Russian diplomats agreed Sunday to work with Ukrainian government officials to ease the crisis triggered by Russia's annexation of Crimea, but remained far apart on other key points after four hours of negotiations in Paris. Secretary of State John F. Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the meeting constructive. Lavrov's remarks suggested that Moscow may now be more willing to work with the interim Ukrainian government, which it has previously dismissed as illegitimate.

TOLUCA, Mexico -- President Obama warned all sides in the deadly Ukrainian conflict Wednesday that “there will be consequences if people step over the line,” but said he holds the government “primarily responsible” for showing restraint in dealing with the opposition. “I want to be very clear as we work through these next several days in Ukraine that we're going to be watching closely, and we expect the Ukrainian government to show restraint, to not resort to violence in dealing with peaceful protesters,” Obama said.

Viktor Yushchenko was sworn in Sunday as president of Ukraine, pledging to root out corruption, promote national unity and build strong ties with the rest of Europe. The former opposition leader took his oath of office in parliament, his hand on an antique Bible. But he honored supporters by delivering his main inaugural speech in central Kiev's Independence Square, the site of mass demonstrations late last year that helped force a rerun of fraud-marred balloting.

To the Ukrainian Orthodox community, last week was Holy Week--time to read the Gospels and prepare sirnek , the rich Easter cheese cake. Parishioners marched around the sanctuary three times Friday before symbolically burying Christ. The Resurrection was celebrated in midnight services Saturday night. Last week was also the week of the Chernobyl reactor disaster.

Katya Komisaruk's curriculum vitae is certainly consistent with the molding of a radical, and her vandalizing of a computer at Vandenberg Air Force Base may possibly lead to a long prison term. How sad that this sensitive and intelligent young lady indulges in treasonous activities in an illusory quest for "peace," whatever her concept of that state may be. And how ironic that her ancestors are Ukrainian, people mass-urdered by orders of Stalin, Jews and non-Jews alike, and who presumably settled in this country, as so many other refugees are doing today, to escape from bondage and desolation at home.

I was in Moscow during the Soviet Union's second darkest hour (the first one was in 1917) when the gang of eight attempted to steal emerging freedom. To say that I am elated that the coup was unsuccessful is an understatement. After reading your editorial of Aug. 22, I was bemused by the report that ". . . the Western allies promptly made clear their wishes to see Gorbachev restored to office. . . ." At no time did I hear anyone in Moscow mention Gorbachev's name. Boris Yeltsin was the man they wanted.

WASHINGTON - President Obama said Friday that he is “deeply concerned” by reports of Russian military activity within Ukraine and warned “there will be costs” for any intervention, urging Moscow to use restraint as the former Soviet state struggles to forge a new government. “Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, which is not in the interests of Ukraine, Russia or Europe,” Obama said in an unscheduled statement from the White House briefing room.
