EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will travel to Kiev on Wednesday, 48 hours earlier than initially scheduled, in a bid to appease the conflict between President Viktor Yanukovych and pro-EU demonstrators. Ashton will however first meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is in Brussels for an EU-Russia summit Tuesday.
