Deadlock: Crisis in Ukraine
Each time the ongoing civil uprising in Ukraine has lost momentum, mistakes by President Yanukovych’s government have reinvigorated it. Protestors continue to gather on the Maidan, infuriated by police crackdowns. The dispute remains deadlocked, with both sides seeking support from outside. Russia has suspended its offer of $15 billion in credit, and the US and EU are reported to be developing an alternate bailout proposal.
