It appears Ukranian President Viktor Yanukovich may have had a change of heart. He has reportedly told the European Union's foreign policy chief he "intends to sign" a trade deal with the E.U. that he rejected just last month. The news comes after the U.S. says it was "disgusted" by government crackdowns on protesters in Kiev and that it is considering sanctions against the former Soviet republic. Ukraine is heading for default in early 2014 without financial assistance, and an agreement with the West could bring in fresh investment with E.U. nations.
