Latest Vladimir Putin Items
The White House said Monday that Russia is "losing" its war in eastern Ukraine and warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin's regime faces more sanctions this week by the U.S. and its European allies.

Locals in the Netherlands gathered at the airport to receive the bodies of their loved ones who were killed during the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 turned their anger on one prominent resident — Russian President Vladimir Putin's daughter, Maria, 29.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says there still must be "normal" U.S.-Russian relations with President Vladimir Putin in power but that the United States and world leaders must hold him to account for his handling of the downing of a Malaysian jetliner.
Russian President Vladimir Putin called Tuesday for Ukraine to observe a cease-fire while investigators probe the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in rebel-held territory.
