Russia offers economic support to Ukraine

Tens of thousands of Ukrainians took to the streets of Kiev today to demand the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych. The protests followed the announcement of a new trade deal with Russia, which was made during a televised news conference on Tuesday. Russia has agreed to cut the price of gas and purchase Ukrainian debt.
