Ukrainian President Agrees To Round Table Discussion With Previous Leaders

Viktor Yanukovych has announced he’ll meet with three previous Ukrainian presidents to discuss diffusing the protests.

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.”
