The 2016 presidential election will feature a matchup between a white millionaire Yale graduate from the Democratic Party (Hillary Clinton) and whichever candidate emerges from the diverse Republican field.
How diverse is this year’s crop of GOP candidates? It might be the most diverse in history, regardless of party. Let’s take a look at the current state of the 2016 race, using charts to explain everything you need to know.
The United Nations said on Monday that more than 6,000 people have now been killed in eastern Ukraine after almost a year of fighting between government forces and Russian-backed separatists.
Fighting continues in eastern Ukraine despite a ceasefire agreement reached earlier this month by European negotiators.
While Russian-backed separatists began to pull back some heavy weapons from the front lines on Tuesday as part of the deal, Ukraine says the rebels are still initiating attacks. Ukrainian forces retreated from the strategic rail hub Debaltseve last week under an onslaught from the separatists—who were bolstered by Russian troops and advanced weaponry, Western officials said—and residents now fear that the rebels could launch further attacks on the eastern cities of Mariupol and Kharkiv.
