the in the. no deal of the e.u. summit here in real news concludes without ukraine signing the association agreement however the e.u. insisting all foot remains on the table does up thousands are still in the streets of ukrainian cities both supporting and opposing the president's decision it's been peaceful so far but who knows this may well be a call before the storm. turns by tap on and nothing came out which was very frightening that the air was degraded horrible a lot of fear and hacks trying sly. those side effects of fracking one to not communities in texas and also having to cope with us quakes which some of blaming on this new method of training. i began to have some serious philosophical reservations about what the fed was doing and i decided to apologize

to america. as the black friday shopping someone kicks off in the glass we'll look at where the wild buying spree of the federal reserve has landed the american economy five years after it started. international news live from moscow this is our senior national with me you know. and welcome to the program. e.u. leaders have failed in their fight to move ukraine closer to europe president yet in comics refused an association deal during an eastern bloc summit in vilnius meanwhile in ukraine's capital kiev thousands are keeping up round the clock protest to try and push the government into cozying up to europe and earlier i

spoke to paul scott and. then following the events for as expected in vilnius has concluded without ukraine assigning that association agreement however on friday the president of the european council herman van rompuy he's hopeful that the deal can be revisited at a later date. remains clear. of signing the most ambitious agreement the european union has ever offered to a nonmember state is still on the table so the e.u. insists that the offer is still on the table however it is a deal that low house already rejected president. maintaining that the deal of the financial deal on offer from brussels was not adequate for his country right now saying he left his country feeling many ated now congress called the moment he came face to face with. heads of state for the very first time since tooling decision
10:03 am
now the lithuanian president was present you can just about make him out on tape saying but if he signs the agreement he says to me on a car i'm going to merkel says we expected more we being the european union in this case now going to cove it justifies his decision to me by saying the economic situation in ukraine is very difficult we are facing serious threats and of course a precondition jailed opposition leader yulia tymoshenko be released to go to germany for medical medical treatment on her back was never likely to be agreed in the ukrainian parliament so for now president of coverage has given a no to the deal in its current form and have scale has meant and they meant they must have public projects thinking how are people reacting to the news if it's still pretty much in protest mode just as many other ukrainian cities all across the country protests are taking place right now at the independence square we have a little more than ten thousand of those who are opposing the president's decision clearly furious with the fact that ukraine did not sign the euro cessation deal
10:04 am
today on the other square just a few hundred meters from here we have the supporters of the presidential party who are saying that this was a right brooke a magic move the biggest question as to how long these protests will last provided that would be only as has come to an end now it is certain that ukraine will not be signing this deal that's also a big question who will be leading this potential protest. because all the opposition leaders and obviously they are the key factors here in leading the protest movement they are still in vilnius but we are certainly expecting numbers to grow here i did abandon square as the day progresses as a working hours finish in kiev we also heard that the people here are planning to stage a unique form of protest to life human chain from the independence square to the border with the european union to the border with poland that six hundred kilometers from here and we also already heard about several incidents with clashes between the two opposing political camps so the situation is pretty much out of knives despite looking peaceful so far and certainly will be following what's

happening in gear in the next several hours. at the real news summit the president of the european commission was once again critical of russia's at the moment let's listen in for a bilateral agreement between dupion union and crane there should be no trilateral for. the times of limited sovereignty over europe and right and i'm sure i'm less punchy young has told our saying that here up is just trying to divert attention from its own witness it. if the european union's leaders whether individually or collectively started admitting to their shortcomings there'd be no end of problems wouldn't there i mean look at the european union massive run down employment throughout the course of the entire union we've got things like fifty percent plus use on employment in several mediterranean countries they have a year old currency project which is a fiasco of course what we have is
10:06 am
a petulant president barroso who's extremely upset because the eastern word expansion of the european union has for the first time in twenty years been checked and it's been checked because when you korean read the small print of the deal they realise that actually they couldn't possibly manage to make the thing work it was going to render short term huge economic difficulties for ukraine and this is a country for whom actually most of their trade is to the east twenty percent with the likes of russia six or seven percent with turkey in fact the only european union country really on the radar would have been its neighbor poland. on our website or gather x. percent pinion on the e.u. ukrainian association deal so to find out more what's behind. head on line to r.t. dot com.
