Ukraine desperate for financial help

Ordinary Ukrainians face more struggles as authorities try to secure loans to finance expenses.

    The government in Kiev has said it desperately needs cash to avert a possible debt default and cover expenses inluding gas imports. Ukraine's future now depends in large part on its ability to secure billions in international aid.

    It is currently in talks with the International Monetary Fund and that will likely mean bringing painful economic change to the lives of ordinary Ukrainians.
