Ukraine elections: Pro-Western parties set for victory

Ukraine's president and prime minister are set to publish a draft coalition agreement, after an apparently sweeping victory for pro-Western parties in Sunday's parliamentary elections.

With half the vote counted, President Petro Poroshenko's bloc and the party of Arseniy Yatseniuk were neck-and-neck with more than 21% of the vote each.

There was no voting in eastern areas controlled by pro-Russian separatists.

David Stern reports.
