The deal that started a revolution in Ukraine has finally come into fruition. Ukraine's newly elected president signed a historic trade and economic agreement with the European Union on Friday, that more closely aligns the country with Western powers. The pact is something that many Ukrainians have been fighting for since November, and what Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought to avoid. A beaming Petro Poroshenko called it "maybe the most important day for my country" since independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.
