This picture taken on September 24, 2013 shows US dollar notes being counted next to stacks of 100 yuan (RMB) bank notes at a bank in Huaibei, in eastern China's Anhui provinceThe US Treasury said Tuesday that China cannot be ruled a manipulator of its currency despite the yuan's sharp slide since January. But the Treasury warned that the recent fall could "raise particularly serious concerns" if it represents a reversal in Beijing's commitment to a more free-floating yuan. In a twice-yearly report to Congress, which would set sanctions on any country officially branded a "manipulator," the Treasury said the yuan, or renminbi (RMB), "remains significantly undervalued" and that market pressures suggest it could easily move upward if trade in it were more free. "China has continued large-scale purchases of foreign exchange in the first quarter of this year, despite having accumulated $3.8 trillion in reserves, which are excessive by any measure.

For east Ukraine, Kremlin adapts Crimea playbook

In the first Ukrainian military action against a pro-Russian uprising in the east, government forces clashed Tuesday with about 30 armed gunmen at a small airport in Kramatorsk. (AP Photo/Alexander Ermochenko)By Thomas Grove SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - There are important differences between Russia's intervention in Crimea and the events unfolding this week in eastern Ukraine which suggest Moscow has adapted its Crimea playbook and may be pursuing a different outcome. Unlike the Black Sea peninsula, where thousands of Russian troops were already based at ex-Soviet naval facilities leased from Ukraine, there is little clear evidence of Moscow deploying significant forces on the ground in the east of the country. In eastern towns where armed, pro-Russian rebels have seized public buildings and raised the Russian flag, some gunmen identify themselves to journalists as "Russians" - but that says little about citizenship in Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine.
