Good Wednesday to all. Today's top 5 global issues news are from #Ukraine #Greece #Afghanistan #UN and #Liberia

- GREECE: The move averts a potential debt burden of up to 250% of Greece’s GDP by 2050, but the country’s debt is still huge and double-digit unemployment could last beyond 2040.

- AFGHANISTAN: Objections to the new extremist leader, Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada, come from number of splinter factions opposing the selection process as undemocratic (my word), i.e. w/o input from all religious scholars and tribal elders (The Taliban's words).
