"We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are. This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven." — President Barack Obama in a prime-time address to the nation from the White House.



"I don't know if the mayor has blinders on. But to say that he didn't know that there was a racial or cultural problem in the city is unfortunate." — Stevie Wonder, suggesting the mayor of Ferguson, Missouri, isn't seeing the full picture a month after an unarmed black 18-year-old was killed by a white police officer.


"Neither we, nor our friends in Donetsk, are going to abandon the course to build our own state. A temporary cease-fire cannot cancel the results of the people's vote. People voted unanimously for the independence of our republics. There's no way back to the previous status." — The leader of the pro-Russia rebels in Luhansk, Igor Plotnitsky, in a statement carried by Russian news agencies.
