Kyiv, day after bloody Euromaidan clashes, 20Feb2014

An uneasy quiet has fallen over Kyiv after two days of bloodshed that took scores of lives, as opposition leaders and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych have signed a deal to defuse the crisis. RFE/RL and our Ukrainian Service, Radio Svoboda, have a complete rundown and analysis of recent events, with updates posted regularly in our liveblog.

# Correspondent Robert Coalson looks at the agreement and its prospects for ending the confrontation.

# In the western Ukrainian city of Lviv, where opposition to the president runs strong and deep, people are not impressed with the new deal. Correspondent Tom Balmforth reports.

# The regime of Yanukovych is looking increasingly weak, and in one of the most telling signs, charter flight logs indicate that lawmakers from the president's Party of Regions and pro-presidential oligarchs may be fleeing in droves. Correspondent Daisy Sindelar reports.

# A medic who was pictured with a wound to the neck as Kyiv descended into chaos and bloodshed Thursday has tweeted that she's alive. Mixed information about the young female volunteer had spread widely on social media Thursday after she tweeted, "I'm dying." Correspondent Glenn Kates has more, as well as the chronology of when Kyiv's Hotel Ukraine became both an emergency medical center and a morgue.

# What are Russians talking about when they talk about Ukraine? The Power Vertical podcast by Brian Whitmore explains.
