Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych has agreed to a proposal that he should hold a round table discussion with three former Ukranian presidents to discuss the current anti-government protests that occurred after Ukraine announced it will freeze ties with the E.U. to strengthen its relationship with Russia.
Ukraine’s first president, Leonid Kravchuk, proposed an “all-national round table” with representatives from the authorities and the opposition to find a compromise to the unrest.
An announcement on Yanukovych website says: “Viktor Yanukovich has supported this initiative. In his opinion, such a round-table can become a platform for mutual understanding.”
