Russia tells UK court Ukraine should be forced to pay debt despite disputesLONDON/KIEV (Reuters) – Russia told Britain’s Supreme Court on Monday that Ukraine should not be allowed to use geopolitical arguments to dispute billions of dollars in debt, after Kiev argued it had been forced to borrow the money from Moscow. The case, being decided in London because the debt was structured as a $ 3 billion Eurobond under English law, could see British courts rule on some of the most contentious issues in the Russia-Ukraine feud that has divided Moscow from the West. After his fall, Russia seized Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula and backed separatists in a war that has killed 13,000 people and brought Western sanctions against Moscow.

Zimbabwe Rejects U.S. Claim That Diamond Mine Uses Forced Labor

Zimbabwe Rejects U.S. Claim That Diamond Mine Uses Forced Labor(Bloomberg) — Zimbabwe accused the U.S. of ignorance after the U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced it’s blocking rough diamond imports from the Marange fields because they were produced with forced labor. “It’s unfortunate that the U.S. authorities have been misinformed or misled to believe that Zimbabwe is mining diamonds through forced labor,” government spokesman Nick Mangwana said Tuesday by text message. “As a government we have a very strong revulsion towards any form of slavery or servitude. To even suggest that Zimbabwe has some form of corporate forced labor is either mischievous or simply ignorant.”Imports from Zimbabwe are not the only ones targeted by the ban. The U.S. agency listed a range of products earlier Tuesday, from garments from China to gold from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
