Clashes between protesters and cops in Kiev

Issue No. 2469

Police and nationalists clashed outside the Ukrainian parliament this week as MPs debated granting autonomy to the southeastern Donetsk and Luhank regions.

Autonomy was a key part of February’s peace deal with Russian-back seperatists. 

Ukraine agreed a debt restructuring deal with some of its creditors last week. But Russia refused to take part.

It will mean huge cuts for workers—but the government’s had an easy ride compared to Greece. Nato began naval drills in the Black Sea last week.
