Putin Paints Himself into a Corner

Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams may have been released after police questioning into a decades-old murder investigation, but the case has opened up old wounds. Russian leader Vladimir Putin may have painted himself into a corner in Ukraine. And more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls are still missing, three weeks after they were kidnapped.

Northern Ireland's problems are bigger than Gerry Adams, a former US Security adviser warns in the Financial Times. Meanwhile, the families of Nigeria's missing schoolgirls have been waiting for a message of reassurance from the president, we read in the country's largest daily, Punch. But as the National Mirror reports, Goodluck Jonathan's weekend speech was probably not it.

Finally, now that Russian leader Vladimir Putin has gained influence in Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine, what next? He may be trapped by his own strategy, argues a Chatham House analyst in the Moscow Times
