Ukraine Signs Historic EU Deal
UKRAINE -- It was a historic day for Ukraine Friday.
The country comes full circle to the European Union deal that sparked major unrest last year.
The Ukrainian President signed a sweeping political and economic agreement with the E.U. in Brussels.
This deal is the same one the previous Ukrainian government backed away from last year.
It cost then-President Viktor Yanukovych his job and plunged the country into chaos.
The signing came hours before the president's office announced a three-day extension of a cease-fire.
This is the latest step suggesting Ukraine may be moving back from the brink of full-fledged civil war, though the situation remains volatile.
