Ukraine Gov., Opposition Sign Deal


ukraine1After a bloody week that left at least 75 protesters dead in Ukraine, the government and opposition leaders signed a deal today that apparently pushes forward elections to the end of this year, paves the way for a coalition government, and trims the president’s powers.

The opposition will hand over their weapons and withdraw from buildings and protest camps. The agreement was hashed out during all-night mediation with Russian and EU representatives. But it’s unlikely that the mass of protestors will accept the measure shots and early this morning shots were still reportedly being fired in Kiev.

On Thursday night, European foreign ministers announced sanctions would be imposed on Ukrainian officials responsible for the violence, including the freezing of their assets, denying them travel visas, and suspending exports of equipment used to quash demonstrations. Read more at The New York Times.
