Klitschko to meet Yanukovych amid anti-government protests

Ukraine’s opposition leader Vitali Klitschko is going to meet Tuesday with President Viktor Yanukovych to discuss violent clashes in the capital Kiev and across the country.

“Yanukovich promised me control on the situation in the country, but failed to fulfil it. I will meet with him to seek answers, including on the five demands of the opposition,” Klitschko said.

The former world boxing champion and leader of the opposition party UDAR (Punch) has been a prominent figure in the anti-government protests, which began in November, after Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych backed out of an Association Agreement with the EU.

Yanukovych warned in return that the country’s stability is threatened by continuing clashes between police and anti-government protesters in Kiev.
