Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, addresses Members of the Scottish Parliament, during First Minister's Question Time, in EdinburghBy Alistair Smout and Guy Faulconbridge EDINBURGH/LONDON (Reuters) - A poll showing support for Scottish independence at its highest ever level threw the fate of the United Kingdom into question on Tuesday, just two weeks before Scots vote on whether to secede. The poll by YouGov showed the unionist lead had shrunk to 6 percentage points from 22 a month ago as support for independence jumped to 47 percent in August, suggesting a major shift in opinion ahead of the Sept. 18 referendum. After months of polls showing nationalists heading for defeat in the vote, the YouGov poll for the first time raises the real prospect that secessionists could achieve their goal of breaking the 307-year-old union with England. "A ‘Yes’ victory is now a real possibility," YouGov President Peter Kellner, one of Britain's most respected pollsters, said.

Ukrainian troops stop cars at a checkpoint as people flee the southeastern Ukrainian city of Mariupol in the Donetsk region amid fears of an offensive by pro-Russian militants on August 30, 2014Fighting in Ukraine has forced over half a million people to flee their homes, the UN refugee agency said Tuesday, warning that the spiralling crisis could could "destabilise the whole region". At least 260,000 have been displaced within Ukraine, UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards said, adding that Moscow has reported that another 260,000 people have sought asylum in Russia. On August 20, UNHCR put the number of people displaced inside Ukraine at 190,000, while Moscow said some 197,400 had fled to Russia. UN refugee chief Antonio Guterres warned of dire consequences if the spiralling crisis in eastern Ukraine, which has killed more than 2,600 people since mid-April, is allowed to continue.
