There are many places to find current news about these events.  Reading a wide vareity of sources will help you consider different points of view, differing focus and priorities, and determine what you believe is trustworthy information.

Special thanks to Serhy Yekelchyk, History and Germanic & Slavic Studies, UVic, for his advice on this list.
