Demonstrators In Ukraine Are Not Giving Up On Protests

Rumors that Ukraine leaders have made a deal with Putin, as precondition for entry into Russia's custom union, have inspired protestors to escalate demonstrations.  This article provides more background on the protests in Ukraine.  The protesters prefer a deal with Europe which would make corruption more difficult in the Ukraine.  The oligarchs who benefit from corruption would prefer a deal with Russia, but many business leaders believe that ending corruption would be better for the economy and for a more democratic form of government.
