BRUSSELS, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, Catherine Ashton, will visit Kiev, which has been hit by anti-government protests, on January 30-31, Olivier Bailly, a spokesman for the EU’s executive body, the European Commission, said.
European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Stefan Fule has already arrived in the Ukrainian capital. He is expected to meet with President Viktor Yanukovich, government ministers, opposition leaders and civil society representatives.
The high-ranking EU officials will continue efforts aimed at assisting political dialogue in Ukraine, Bailly said.
At least three protesters are believed to have been killed in violent clashes with police since Sunday, when hundreds of people gathered in downtown Kiev to protest new legislation on violations of public order.
Video reports from the scene showed people wearing masks and helmets to hurl Molotov cocktails and chunks of concrete at police. According to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, at least 170 police officers have been injured since Sunday. Radical protesters in Kiev have also seized the City Hall, the Trade Union building and the Agriculture Ministry’s building.
