An EU Deal for the Ukraine?

The BBC reports this morning that Ms. Ashton has been assured by the embattled president during their talks in Kiev that his aim is to sign the EU deal. No time frame has been given as to when the president would inked such a pact with the EU.

Meanwhile, pro-European protesters continue their encampment at Independence Square in Kiev after failed heavy-handed attempts by government forces to remove them. The United States has also threatened action against the Ukrainian government for the rough treatment dealt to protesters.
