RT News - January 01, 2017 (17:00 MSK)

A New Year massacre in Istanbul - at least 39 are killed and dozens hurt in a nightclub terror attack. The gunman, who was wearing a Santa Claus costume, is still at large. The slaughter came just hours after the UN Security Council unanimously approved a resolution, drafted by Turkey and Russia - endorsing a nationwide ceasefire in Syria. And, among the week's top stories, the Obama administration slaps new sanctions on Russia over alleged meddling in the U.S. election - but Moscow refrains from tit-for-tat measures. 

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you.

You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,
