David Bowie: Artist an businessman - Volkswagen apologizes to US public for cheating - Putin admits sanctions are biting
Stringent international sanctions imposed on Russia for its role in the Ukraine conflict have sucked the momentum out of the Russian economy over the past couple of years. The nation's growth prospects remain lethargic.
There is still time to agree on climate, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said in response to the US pulling out of the Paris accord. The Russian leader also mocked the claims of Russia colluding with Donald Trump.
Russia has been disillusioned by the new round of tough sanctions passed by the US Congress. A fresh start in relations between the two superpowers seems unlikely, and there are growing calls for retaliation.
