These printed copies of a presentation released by the U.S. Department of State on Thursday, April 17, 2014, purport to show Russian involvement in Eastern Ukraine. The 11-page document contains images of soldiers in eastern Ukraine that the State Department says are Russian forces, showing militants wearing similar uniforms and brandishing Russian weapons. There was no way to immediately verify the photographs, which the State Department says were taken from the Internet and social media. (AP Photo)

FILE - This photo March 11, 2013 file photo shows a wooden stick with a pink ribbon marking the proposed route of the Keystone XL pipeline through farmland near Bradshaw, Neb. The US is extending indefinitely the amount of time federal agencies have to review the Keystone XL pipeline, the State Department said Friday, likely punting the decision over the controversial oil pipeline until after the midterm elections. The State Department didn’t say how much longer it will grant agencies to weigh in, but cited a recent decision by a Nebraska judge that overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline's path through the state, prompting uncertainty and an ongoing legal battle. Nebraska’s Supreme Court isn’t expected to rule for another several months and there could be more legal maneuvering after that, potentially freeing President Barack Obama to avoid making a final call on the pipeline until after the election in November.
