The European Union offered more money and the promise of visa-free travel to some post-communist nations Friday in an East-West partnership that has tempered its ambitions after Russia's military intervention in Ukraine.At the summit, the EU also promised grants of 200 million euros ($223 million) over the next decade to support small and medium-sized businesses in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.Russia tried to pull Ukraine away from the EU partnership in 2013, triggering street protests that led to the overthrow of the Moscow-friendly government followed by Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula.
