War in Ukraine: Russia accuses Ukraine of attacking oil depot
BBC News 
An oil storage depot was set on fire in a Russian city just north of Ukraine after what Russia described as an attack by two Ukrainian helicopters.

A video shared on Twitter showed a blaze near apartment blocks in Belgorod, 40km (25 miles) from the border.

Some clips appeared to show rockets hitting the oil depot.

Ukraine’s top security official, however, denied Ukrainian forces were behind the attack.

“For some reason, they are saying we are behind it. This does not correspond to reality,” security council secretary Oleksiy Danilov said.

Ukrainian aircraft have not struck targets in Russia previously. Yet Belgorod governor Vyacheslav Gladkov accused Ukraine of launching the attack, and later Russian defence ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov gave details. Read more and see video here.

Sarah Palin Returns to Politics to Run for Congress
Rebecca Downs / Townhall Tipsheet
Over a decade after she served as governor of Alaska until 2009 and was John McCain's running mate in 2008, Sarah Palin announced she was running for Congress.

A statement from Palin began by referencing former Rep. Don Young (R-AK), who just died on March 18. He had been the dean of the House, as well as the longest-serving member of Congress. "I realize that I have very big shoes to fill, and I plan to honor Rep. Young's legacy by offering myself up in the name of service to the state he loved and fought for, because I share that passion for Alaska and the United States of America," her statement began in part.

Palin's statement referenced how "America is at a tipping point" and credited how she's "watched the far left destroy the country" as motivation for why she's running. 

"At this critical time in our nation's history, we need leaders who will combat the left's socialist, big-govermment, America-last agenda. This country was built by heroes, and the radical left dishonors their legacies by opening our borders to illegal immigrants, mortgaging our children's future, and selling out our nation's interests to the highest bidder."
