Ukrainian parliament speaker Vladimir Rybak said earlier on Tuesday that President Viktor Yanukovich and the opposition leaders would meet on Wednesday to discuss the situation in the country.
“The meeting is preliminary set for 11:00 (13:00 Moscow time),” Rybak said.
He explained that the deputies would have to pass decisions, which parliament should be able to consider at its plenary meeting on Thursday.
“On Thursday, we are planning to discuss the creation of a temporary commission that will try to reach an agreement on amendments to the Constitution,” Rybak added.
