An independent Scotland would retain Queen Elizabeth II as head of state, keep the pound sterling currency, and remain within the European Union, according to a policy document presented by Scotland's devolved government Tuesday.

The release of the draft plan - known as a white paper - comes ahead of next year's referendum on independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The September 18 2014 referendum will allow Scots a straight yes-or-no vote on staying in the union.

If they vote yes, the country's first independent election would be held on May 5, 2016, according to the white paper.

From independence to union, to devolution. Becky  looks at Scotland's history and how we got here.

Ukraine's president, Viktor Yanukovych, is in a difficult position. Under severe economic pressure from Russia, not to join the EU, he was facing a key EU demand that he was unwilling to meet: free former Prime Minister, and his political opponent, Yulia Tymoshenko.

She was found guilty of abuse of office in a Russian gas deal and sentenced to seven years in prison in 2011.  Her supporters say she needs to travel abroad for medical treatment.
