Situation Still Tense In Kiev After Signing Of Peace Deal
(Kiev) — A deal to end violent protests in Ukraine is signed, but there’s still unrest in the streets of Kiev. Ukraine’s president signed an agreement Friday that calls for early elections in an effort to stop the bloody clashes between protesters and riot police. Opposition leaders also signed off on the deal, but demonstrators in the streets of Kiev say early elections aren’t good enough. The crowds in Independence Square held up the coffins of those who have died in recent days and say they want President Viktor Yanukovich out. Unrest exploded in Ukraine weeks ago after Ukraine’s president accepted a bailout deal from Moscow rather than a trade agreement with the EU.
