What’s next for the Ukrainian people?

The government of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych reached an agreement with the opposition on Thursday, halting for the moment the violence in the streets of Kiev. Yet it remains to be seen whether protesters will accept the deal or whether they’ll insist on staying in their camp in the center of the nation’s capital. There’s also concern about how the military will respond to the accord, and whether they’ll do something to keep Yanukovych in power.

In the meantime, here’s what’s on the table: immediate curtailment of Yanukovych’s presidential authority with a plan for a new constitution and new elections later this year.
