ABC 7 Political Consultant Dr. Frank Alcock talks Kiev unrest, Ted Cruz visit

  • 0

Ukraine's opposition leaders have signed a deal with the president and European mediators for early elections and a new government in the hopes of ending a deadly political crisis.

Street battles between protestors and police in Kiev have left more than 100 people dead this week, with hundreds more injured.

But today's news could be a major breakthrough in the crisis over Ukraine's future.

Protestors in the clashes wanted Ukraine's president to step down because of his pro-Russia stand. In this new deal, he'll reportedly lose some of his governing powers.

As of this morning, the riots have stopped.

ABC 7 Political Consultant Dr. Frank Alcock joined anchor Scott Dennis during the Friday noon broadcast to talk about the situation in Ukraine before also touching on Senator Ted Cruz's visit to Sarasota Thursday evening.
