The European Union has signed a deal for 1 billion euros in marco-financial aid to be given to Ukraine.

Part of the money will go to building up the country's political institutions to be transparent and democratic.

355 million euros will go on a Ukrainian state building to try to build a strong and transparent democracy. The rest of the money will be pumped into the financial sector.

But with elections less than a fortnight away, the country's main focus is on how to ensure a fair democratic process despite continuing unrest in eastern regions spurred in their opinion by Moscow.
