LONDON, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Three European Union foreign ministers left Kiev on Thursday without seeing President Viktor Yanukovich after violence between police and protesters exploded in the city centre, leaving many people dead, Reuters reports.
"They have left. They did not see the President for security reasons," said a diplomatic source.
The three ministers – from Poland, Germany and France – had been due to see Yanukovich in efforts to promote a political compromise to the crisis convulsing the country, now in its third month, Reuters said.
But the three ministers met with Ukrainian opposition leaders on Thursday morning in the building of the German embassy not far from Independence Square.
