Ukraine: Russian military blocking airport

Friday, 28 February 2014 01:17 Published in National News
   SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine's interior minister says the Russian military are blocking an airport in the Black Sea port of Sevastopol in Crimea near the Russian naval base.
   Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post that the Belbek international airport in Sevastopol is blocked by military units of the Russian navy. Avakov called the blockade "military invasion and occupation."
   Separately, dozens of armed men in military uniforms without markings were patrolling the airport in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea on Friday as tensions in the country's Russian-speaking southeast escalated. It was not immediately clear who they were.
   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A former St. Louis City alderwoman has been fined $100,000 for using her campaign funds to pay off student loans and for spa visits.
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Kacie Starr Triplett misused almost $19,000 in campaign donations on personal expenses.
   In a letter Thursday, Triplett apologized for her actions and said her decision stemmed from "greed and selfishness," not from need.
   The Missouri Ethics Commission levied the six-figure fine but is willing take only $10,000 if Triplett pays within 45 days. There is no criminal penalty in the commission's decision, although it could spur other investigations.
   Triplett left the Board of Alderman in 2012.
