      Ukraine: Confusion Reigns Over Possible Peace Deal

      Confusion reigned in Ukraine Friday as President Viktor Yanukovych declared that a peace agreement is imminent, but declined to make a formal announcement after all-night negotiations with the Opposition. The negotiations were mediated by foreign ministers from Germany, Poland, and France.

      Meanwhile, diplomats stated Friday morning that a compromise drafted overnight involved appointing a transitional government, drafting a revised constitution by September which would limit presidential powers, and holding new elections by 2015.
