With the Hryvnia at near-record lows (9.08 to the USD) and 3-month bill yields at 42%, we get a glimmer of good news from Ukraine:

  • *UKRAINE PROTEST CAMP WON'T BE STORMED TONIGHT, OPPOSITION SAYS
  • *UKRAINE GOVT, OPPOSITION AGREE ON TRUCE, YANUKOVYCH SAYS
  • *UKRAINE TALKS AIMED AT STOPPING BLOODSHED, YANUKOVYCH SAYS

Though sadly we have seen this before...
