Europe offers further €1 billion in financial aid to Ukraine

The European Commission has proposed another 1 billion euro for Kiev, which will come as a part of the 11 billion euro package agreed earlier in March. Conditions for the new installment will be agreed in the coming weeks with the IMF.
A rapidly worsening balance-of-payments and weak fiscal situation in the wake of the latest developments in Ukraine pushed the EU to consider a new perk. 

"It is in the essential interest of Ukraine and of the EU to maintain peace and political and financial stability in our continent. This financial aid will help in stabilising the worsening financial situation in Ukraine and therefore will be one vital part of achieving a solution to the crisis," Olli Rehn, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for Economic and Monetary Affairs and the Euro, said in a statement.

Greek families struggle with austerity


 ---
Two elections, two rounds of austerity measure and endless strikes and protests, Greece has struggled through 2012. Under the huge financial pressure, how are Greeks holding up?
