Ukraine signed a historic trade deal today with the European Union. An accord with the EU was rejected last year by former president Viktor Yanukovych in favor of a deal with Russia. The backlash sparked his ouster, fighting between pro-European and pro-Russian Ukrainians and Russia’s annexation of Crimea. We look at what’s in the EU Association Agreement and what it will mean for Ukraine in terms of trade, jobs and exports. Also, did anyone else have trouble watching the World Cup US-Germany game online? Why does ESPN's online streaming choke for US viewers at the worst possible time during the World Cup? We investigate the "peak" problem.
