US president appears to make light of 2016 scandal before meeting at G20 summit

Donald Trump has told Vladimir Putin not to meddle in the 2020 US election, smirking and pointing his finger as he did so and appearing to make light of a scandal that led to a two-year investigation into his campaign’s contact with the Kremlin during the 2016 election.

Asked by a reporter whether he would raise the issue during a meeting with Putin, Trump said: “Yes, of course I will.”

Six of company’s 24 European factories will close by end of 2020 under the plans

Ford plans to cut 12,000 jobs across Europe as the US carmaker tries to turn around the struggling business in a European car market that is forecast to shrink in 2019 for the first time in six years.

Its chief executive, Jim Hackett, has instigated the cuts to the carmaker’s global business, which lost more than $800m (£631m) outside of north America last year.

Dmytro Firtash, confidant of ousted Ukrainian president, faces bribery-related charges

Austria’s highest court has upheld a decision making it possible to extradite the Ukrainian tycoon Dmytro Firtash, paving the way for him to face bribery-related charges in the United States.

Before his 2014 arrest, Firtash wielded significant political influence in Ukraine, where he had made a fortune from deals to import gas from Russia and central Asia and built a business empire worth billions.

Austria’s supreme court has upheld a decision granting a request by the US to extradite the Ukrainian tycoon Dmytro Firtash on bribery charges.

A US grand jury indicted Firtash in 2013, along with a member of India’s parliament and four others, on suspicion of bribing Indian government officials to gain access to minerals used to make titanium-based products. Firtash denies wrongdoing.

How we paired up with a network of political scientists to create a wide-ranging series and a groundbreaking database

Last summer I attended a closed-door gathering of political scientists in Segovia, Spain, surrounded by the medieval spires of the Castile and León region. The scholars had flown in from across the world to spend a few days reviewing academic literature on the vexed subject of “populism”.

One of the academics showed me a graph charting how the number of Google searches for “populism” had rocketed in 2016, around the time of the UK’s Brexit vote and the election of US president Donald Trump, and remained high ever since. For decades a niche topic mostly studied by specialists in Latin America, the study of populism was suddenly very much in vogue.

Acquitted woman says media created story about her role in death of Meredith Kercher

An emotional Amanda Knox has castigated the media for depicting her as a “dirty maneater” when she was on trial for the murder of the British student Meredith Kercher.

Knox, now 31, was twice convicted and twice acquitted of killing Kercher, 21, in the home they shared in the Italian university town of Perugia in November 2007.

French president praises multilateralism of Nato and EU while offering gratitude to US

France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, has appealed directly to Donald Trump to fulfil the “promise of Normandy” by embracing pillars of the postwar peace such as the European Union and Nato as the two leaders marked the D-day landings 75 years ago.

In a speech that trod a fine diplomatic line, Macron offered both sincere expressions of gratitude for the valour of US troops in the second world war and vehement calls for the White House to re-engage with the principles of multilateralism.

As ceremonies mark 75th anniversary of Allied landings in Normandy, two veterans tell their tales

Ken Peppercorn almost didn’t make it to Gold beach. He fell off the ramp of his landing craft into an underwater shell hole. “I nearly went under. I was loaded up with all the equipment – hand grenades in my pockets, magazines in my pouches, and everything else I could carry.”

The sea around him was red with blood. “It was quite a mess, but you just had to keep going.” He managed to surface and get to the beach. “We were under fire but I scrambled up the dunes and found a shell crater to shelter in. I was so hungry that the first thing I did was get my rations out and make porridge,” he said.

Deal would create world’s third-largest automaker and ‘save €5bn a year’ by sharing research

Fiat Chrysler has proposed a merger with France’s Renault that would create the world’s third-largest carmaker and save billions needed to invest in the race to make electric and autonomous vehicles.

The merged company would produce 8.7m vehicles annually and save €5bn ($5.6bn or £4.4bn) each year by sharing research, purchasing and other activities, according to a statement released by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). It said the deal would involve no plant closures but did not address potential job cuts.
