A deal has been made between leaders of the Ukrainian government and protestors, led by Polish, French and German foreign ministers. The details, however remain unclear.

During the most recent round of protests this week, it is reported that at least 100 people have been killed, including protestors, police officers and citizens.

Social media has been ablaze with images of Ukraine's capital, Kiev, in flames, as protestors demand democracy and, specifically, that President Yanukovych steps down.

One detail of the deal which has emerged is that elections will be held no later than this December.
