Swedish prosecutors said on Tuesday an investigation showed that Russia's GRU military intelligence agency had carried out serious data secrecy breaches at Sweden's sports confederation in 2017 and 2018 but it was nevertheless dropping the case. The Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement that repeated and comprehensive breaches had resulted in the GRU accessing Swedish athletes' personal details, such as medical records, which were subsequently published. "Against the background of parties acting for a foreign power, in this case Russia, we have reached the conclusion that the necessary preconditions for taking legal proceedings abroad or extradition to Sweden are lacking," Prosecutor Mats Ljungqvist said in the statement.
TORONTO — The head of the Bank of Nova Scotia is urging Ottawa to top up to the annual Canada Child Benefit, introduce a grant for businesses to make capital investments and eliminating the interprovincial trade barrier. Chief executive Brian Porter says he wants the benefit topped up by $5,000 and the child tax credit increased to allow parents to fully deduct the cost of preschool child care and to encourage women to stay in the workforce. He says there should be a one-time, matching grant for businesses to make capital investments in machinery, equipment, and intellectual property, so small businesses can digitize, medium-sized businesses can retool for efficiency and large businesses can become more sustainable. He also wants the elimination of the interprovincial trade barrier because he says the International Monetary Fund estimates that complete liberalization of internal trade in goods can increase Canada’s GDP per capita by about 4 per cent per year. Porter says he is making the trio of recommendations because he believes they will have a direct and positive impact on GDP, increase the number of working Canadians and make the country stronger and more prosperous. He made the remarks at the bank's annual general meeting, and ahead of the federal budget, which will be released on Monday. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 13, 2021.

BRUSSELS — The United States and NATO on Tuesday expressed strong support for Ukraine and warned Russia against pressing ahead with a major troop buildup along the former Soviet republic’s eastern border. In separate meetings with Ukraine’s foreign minister, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg expressed serious concern about Russia deploying the largest concentration of troops near the Ukraine border since 2014. Blinken accused Russia of taking “very provocative” actions that have alarmed Ukraine and the West. Stoltenberg, meanwhile, called the Russian movements “unjustified, unexplained and deeply concerning.” Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said Kyiv welcomed the support and urged Western countries to make clear to Moscow that it would pay a price for its “aggression.” The comments came amid a surge of cease-fire violations in eastern Ukraine, where Russia-ba?ked separatists and Ukrainian forces have been locked in a conflict since Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula. NATO is holding a special meeting Tuesday on Ukraine. “The U.S. stands firmly behind the sovereignty and the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” Blinken told Kuleba at the start of their meeting at the residence of the U.S. ambassador to Belgium, a post once held by Blinken's uncle. "That’s particularly important at a time when were seeing, unfortunately, Russia take very provocative actions when it comes to Ukraine.” Kuleba replied that Ukraine was grateful for the support of the U.S. and NATO, an alliance that Kyiv is looking to join over fierce Russian objections. “In this struggle, the support of the United States is absolutely crucial and deeply appreciated,” Kuleba said. He called Russia's troop build-up “aggressive” and asked the U.S. and others to "make it very clear to Russia that the price of its aggression against Ukraine will be too heavy for it to bear.” Earlier, at news conference with Kuleba at NATO headquarters, Stoltenberg said the alliance was united in its “unwavering” support for Ukraine. “NATO stands with Ukraine,” he said. “Russia must end this military buildup in and around Ukraine, stop its provocations and de-escalate immediately." Stoltenberg called Moscow's recent troop deployment the biggest military buildup since the conflict in eastern Ukraine began. “Russia has moved thousands of combat troops to Ukraine’s borders, the largest massing of Russian troops since the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014. Over the last days, several Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in eastern Ukraine,” he said. The Ukrainian foreign minister sounded defiant toward Moscow, and said Ukraine and its Western partners were better prepared than seven years ago. “Should Moscow take any reckless move or start a new spiral of violence, it will be costly in all senses,” Kuleba said. A special NATO meeting Tuesday on Ukraine would make sure the alliance is not caught unaware, he said. "By gathering today, we try to avoid the mistake that was made in 2014 when Russia was ready to act swiftly and pursue its military goals," Kuleba said. Ukraine has said Russia has accumulated 41,000 troops at its border with eastern Ukraine and 42,000 more in Crimea. The numbers are likely to grow as the troops keep arriving. The Kremlin has maintained that Russia is free to deploy its troops wherever it wants on its territory and has repeatedly accused the Ukrainian military of “provocative actions” along the line of control and of planning to retake control of the rebel regions by force. Kremlin officials charged that Kyiv’s actions have threatened Russia’s security, warning that Russia may intervene to protect Russian speakers in the east. Underlying Tuesday's meeting is also Ukraine's wish to become a NATO member. Stoltenberg insisted it was up to the alliance's 30 members to decide who could join the group, “and no one else has any right to try to meddle or to interfere in that process. It’s a sovereign right of every nation like Ukraine to apply for membership.” “This is an important principle, because Russia is now trying to reestablish some kind of sphere of influence where they try to decide what neighbours can do. And that is a world we are really trying to leave behind,” the NATO chief said. Matthew Lee And Raf Casert, The Associated Press

Most facilities in India have a flexible design that allows the use of up to 52U rack sizes. The rack market is expected to grow with the rise in the OCP-ready space as a number of cloud-based, and internet-based service providers are considering adopting OCP architecture-based IT infrastructure systems. The use of CRAC units is higher among the facilities in India, and most facilities use air-based cooling systems. Most facilities operating in colder climatic conditions adopt free cooling chillers with smart technology as they enable operations based on the temperature outside. The data center market in India has a strong presence of construction contractors and sub-contractors. Sterling and Wilson and L&T Construction are among the leading contractors in the market. These providers can perform installation and commissioning services. Thus, the increasing construction of new facilities is likely to influence multiple global construction contractors to enter the market. Installation and commissioning services are essential aspects of data center development. Several Tier III and Tier IV facilities in India are certified by the Uptime Institute for design, construction, and operational stability. This is commonly needed for colocation service providers to attract customers for their service offerings. According to the Uptime Institute, the total number of the certified data centers are around 35 in 13 states across India, which includes local and global facilities. The number of Tier III certified data centers is higher than Tier IV and Tier II. Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Karnataka, and Gujarat are the major states with certified facilities. In India, several under-developed projects fall under the Tier III category. This trend is likely to continue during the forecast period, with many operators expected to shift to the Tier IV category with the growth in rack power density and critical applications. There are five data center facilities in India situated in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh, according to the uptime institute.

BARCELONA, Spain — Spain's left-wing government wants the massive coronavirus windfall it will be receiving from the European Union to transform the nation after the economic devastation caused by the pandemic. Spain is set to receive 140 billion euros ($166 billion) — half in direct payments, half in loans — from the 750 billion-euro ($908 billion) recovery plan adopted by EU leaders last year as the continent's economy reeled under lockdown restrictions, job losses and reduced consumer spending. Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, the leader of Spain’s Socialists, unveiled the plans his coalition government had for 70 billion ($83 billion) in direct aid that it hopes to invest over the next three years. In line with EU priorities, they place a heavy emphasis on creating a greener economy, digitalizing business and public administrations and boosting productivity, all while fighting gender inequality and ensuring Spain’s underpopulated rural areas don't get left behind. “This is the biggest opportunity for Spain since its entry into the European Union, and that was 37 years ago,” Sánchez said. “These opportunities only come twice in a generation, and Spain is not going to let it go by.” The members of the 27-nation bloc have until the end of the month to hand in their coronavirus recovery plans to Brussels. Sánchez will first present his plan to Spain’s Parliament on Wednesday, when opposition parties can argue for changes. Sánchez said his government has forecast a 2% annual GPD growth thanks to the financial injection for a nation of 47 million whose economy shrunk 11% last year. The first goal is to offset the hundreds of thousands of jobs lost in the pandemic, above all in Spain's large tourism industry. Meanwhile, Sánchez wants to shift the nation's economy by boosting renewable energy use and other initiatives to fight the effects of climate change, including electrifying Spain's motorways for electric and hybrid vehicles. He also wants to spend big on making homes more energy efficient. “In the short term, we want to promote the recovery our our economy. In the mid-term, we want to foster its complete transformation,” Sánchez said. ___ Follow all of AP’s pandemic coverage at https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic, https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine and https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak Joseph Wilson, The Associated Press
