KIEV, February 25. /ITAR-TASS/. EU foreign policy Chief Catherine Ashton met on Monday with the leaders of three opposition parties and an agreement was reached on financial aid that the new Ukrainian government would soon receive from the European Union, the website of the Batkivshchyna Party reported on Tuesday.
It said the parties “discussed the course of forming a new coalition in Verkhovna Rada (the parliament) and the Ukrainian government. The parties discussed priority tasks facing the new Ukrainian authorities and the aid the European Union could grant”.
They also focused on the settlement of problems that leaders of three parties (UDAR, Svoboda and Batkivshchyna) see as facing Ukraine and its new leadership, as well as EU’s financial assistance, the website said.
Batkivshchyna’s Arseniy Yatsenyuk also informed Catherine Ashton “about the documents indicative of the former authorities’ preparations for and putting into practice criminal actions against peaceful protesters”.
