      Poroshenko Says Crimea ‘Is, Was, Will Be’ Ukrainian

      June 07, 2014 7:05 AM VOA News

      Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko promised to maintain the unity of Ukraine, saying Crimea “is, was and will be Ukrainian.”

      Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko lifts his arms in greeting after the inauguration ceremony in Sophia Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Saturday, June 7, 2014.
      Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko lifts his arms in greeting after the inauguration ceremony in Sophia Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Saturday, June 7, 2014.

      The billionaire businessman took the oath of office as the country’s fifth president since the breakup of the Soviet Union Saturday in the capital, Kyiv, in front of parliament, world leaders and dignitaries, including U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.

      Poroshenko said during his inaugural address he will not accept Russia’s annexation of Crimea. Moscow sent troops to the Black Sea peninsula earlier this year and took control of it in March.

      The new Ukrainian leader also pledged dialogue with countrymen in the east of the country where pro-Russian separatists have clashed with Ukrainian forces.

      Poroshenko won a majority of votes in a May 25 election featuring 21 candidates.

      He now must steer a country troubled by severe economic woes and unrest in the Russian border region.

      Russia strengthens border security

      Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin reportedly ordered the Federal Security Service to beef up protection of Russia’s border with Ukraine. Russian news agencies on Saturday said the move aims to prevent illegal crossings into Ukraine.

      The measure comes a day after the United States, Russia and Ukraine took tentative steps to ease tensions spawned by the crisis.

      U.S. President Barack Obama met informally with his Russian counterpart, Putin, in a push to bring what the Kremlin called “a speedy end to violence and military operations” in eastern Ukraine.

      The two leaders met in France on the sidelines of D-Day commemoration ceremonies.

      U.S. officials said Obama used the unplanned, 15-minute meeting to emphasize that Russia can only contribute to regional peace by recognizing Ukraine’s newly elected president, Poroshenko. Obama urged Putin to end support for pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

    Weekly Address: Supporting America’s Students

    Remarks of President Barack Obama
    Weekly Address
    The White House

    June 7, 2014

    Hi, everybody. This is commencement season, a time for graduates and their families to celebrate one of the greatest achievements of a young person’s life. But for many graduates, it also means feeling trapped by a whole lot of student loan debt. And we’ve got to do more to lift that burden.

    See, in a 21st century economy, the surest pathway into the middle class is some form of higher education. The unemployment rate for workers with a bachelor’s degree is just 3.3 percent – about half what it is for high school graduates. The typical graduate of a four-year college earns $15,000 more per year than someone with just a high school degree.

    But at a time when college has never been more important, it’s also never been more expensive.

    That’s why, since I took office, I’ve worked to make college more affordable. We reformed a student loan system that gave away billions of taxpayer dollars to big banks and invested that money where it makes a bigger bang – in helping more young people afford a higher education.

    But over the past three decades, the average tuition at a public four-year college has more than tripled. The average undergraduate student who borrows for college now graduates owing almost $30,000. And I’ve heard from too many young people who are frustrated that they’ve done everything they were supposed to do – and now they’re paying the price.

    I’ve taken action on my own to offer millions of students the opportunity to cap their monthly student loan payments to 10% of their income. But Congress needs to do its part. The good news is that Senate Democrats are working on a bill that would help more young people save money. Just like you can refinance your mortgage at a lower interest rate, this bill would let you refinance your student loans. And we’d pay for it by closing loopholes that allow some millionaires to pay a lower tax rate than the middle class.

    That’s the choice that your representatives in Congress will make in the coming weeks – protect young people from crushing debt, or protect tax breaks for millionaires. And while Congress decides what it’s going to do, I will keep doing whatever I can without Congress to help responsible young people pay off their loans – including new action I will take this week.

    This country has always made a commitment to put a good education within the reach of all who are willing to work for it. That’s what made us an economic superpower. That’s what makes us special. And as long as I hold this office, I’ll keep fighting to give more young people the chance to earn their own piece of the American Dream. Thanks, and have a great weekend.

      Remarks by the First Lady at Memorial Service for Dr. Maya Angelou

      Wait Chapel at Wake Forest University
      Winston-Salem, North Carolina

      11:42 A.M. EDT

      MRS. OBAMA: Thank you so much. (Applause.) My heart is so full. My heart is so full. Bebe — Oprah, why did you do that? Just why did you put me after this? (Laughter.)

      To the family, Guy, to all of you; to the friends; President Clinton; Oprah; my mother, Cicely Tyson; Ambassador Young — let me just share something with you. My mother, Marian Robinson, never cares about anything I do. (Laughter.) But when Dr. Maya Angelou passed, she said, you’re going, aren’t you? I said, well, Mom, I’m not really sure, I have to check with my schedule. She said, you are going, right? (Laughter.) I said, well, I’m going to get back to you but I have to check with the people, figure it out. I came back up to her room when I found out that I was scheduled to go, and she said, that’s good, now I’m happy. (Laughter.)

      It is such a profound honor, truly, a profound honor, to be here today on behalf of myself and my husband as we celebrate one of the greatest spirits our world has ever known, our dear friend, Dr. Maya Angelou.

      In the Book of Psalms it reads: “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the Earth.” What a perfect description of Maya Angelou, and the gift she gave to her family and to all who loved her.

      She taught us that we are each wonderfully made, intricately woven, and put on this Earth for a purpose far greater than we could ever imagine. And when I think about Maya Angelou, I think about the affirming power of her words.

      The first time I read “Phenomenal Woman”, I was struck by how she celebrated black women’s beauty like no one had ever dared to before. (Applause.) Our curves, our stride, our strength, our grace. Her words were clever and sassy; they were powerful and sexual and boastful. And in that one singular poem, Maya Angelou spoke to the essence of black women, but she also graced us with an anthem for all women –- a call for all of us to embrace our God-given beauty.

      And, oh, how desperately black girls needed that message. As a young woman, I needed that message. As a child, my first doll was Malibu Barbie. (Laughter.) That was the standard for perfection. That was what the world told me to aspire to. But then I discovered Maya Angelou, and her words lifted me right out of my own little head.
