Ever since the Ukrainian revolution in February this year, the Eastern European country has witnessed spiraling political instability and bloodshed. Below are five must-read Reuters opinion pieces to help you understand this conflict’s origins and its consequences.
It makes sense for President Barack Obama to weigh his options against the Islamic State, especially in a region where it's easier to do more harm than good.
There are many new drugs in the pipeline to treat Ebola or vaccinate against it, but they are all in various states of testing.
No job is inherently marginal. Lousy jobs in places like non-union Phoenix are middle-class jobs in unionized New York City.
Skepticism is certainly justified about Europe’s willingness to pull itself out of stagnation.
In the summer of 2012, I spent three weeks in the besieged Syrian town of Qusayr working as a freelance photographer and writer with a group of young anti-Assad activists in a second-floor apartment next door to a field hospital.
I first saw James Foley – whom the Islamic State executed last week -- at a demonstration in Aleppo, a rebel stronghold. He was standing perfectly straight and steadily holding his camera as he filmed a handful of men dancing while drums were pounded and scores of people sang.
The only way to defeat them is a military one, but Americans will not be doing the fighting on the ground.

It wasn't long ago that Russia didn’t need to paint its military convoys a pale white to cross international boundaries.
Late-night comedy will be dominated by white men for the foreseeable future. But achieving diversity among guests can be solved much more quickly.
It has been more than two years without even a 10 percent correction and five years without a 20 percent setback. This cannot go on.
U.S. spies, eavesdroppers and airstrike controllers on the ground now have a lot of work to do together to catch up to the rapidly evolving front in northern Iraq.
This killing is clear evidence of how vastly different responses to kidnappings by U.S. and European governments save European hostages but can doom the Americans.
I find Vladimir Putin annoying at the best of times, but this month my distaste has blossomed into unbridled loathing. By imposing sanctions on food imports from the United States, European Union, Canada and Japan, Russia’s kefir-drinking head of state scuppered my chances of making a decent plate of cacio i pepe or a batch of brownies for the next calendar year.
