After violence swept over Kyiv the last few days leaving dozens dead and hundreds wounded, opposition leaders have apparently reached an agreement with President Viktor Yanukovych to try to halt the rapidly escalating crisis. The past weekend brought further tough negotiations and a decision is expected about whether and when to hold early parliamentary and presidential elections, now scheduled for March 2015. What are the prospects for further compromise from both sides, leading to a sustainable, peaceful resolution? Join us by phone to discuss the current state of affairs with prominent experts and Kennan Institute alumni on the ground in Ukraine.
