KIEV, Ukraine — World Council of Credit Unions CEO Brian Branch returned Wednesday from a last-minute, three-day visit to Ukraine, where credit unions are struggling to react effectively to the turmoil taking place in the country.

While there, Branch met with credit union representatives who are operating near the barricades in Kiev set up by protesters who have overthrown the government and who now worry about potential attacks by government or Russian troops.
