HELSINKI, June 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russia has revoked its signature on a border treaty with Estonia, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. "As the Estonian side has failed to fulfill its commitments, we are revoking our signature on the treaty," Lavrov said. There will be no ratification since there will be no agreement itself, the minister said. "We need to start new negotiations to settle the border issues," Lavrov added.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
