Soft Power of Europe on the Dnjepr

Today is the day of the summit between the European Union and Ukraine in Kiev.

Everyone from Tony Blair and Jose Manuel Barosso downward are there. And a series of agreements will be signed.

In itself, these will not solve the numerous problems of Ukraine. It's still the March elections that are crucial.

But it does show the prospects that are there for the future.

Tomorrow I'm heading to Kiev and Donetz to discuss the political and economic future of this important part of Europe.
