(QHA) - Ukrainian protesters remain massed outside government buildings in Kyiv for a sixth day as the standoff continues over the government’s rejection of closer ties with the European Union. The EU has responded to a claim from Ukrainian officials that they were sending delegations on December 4 to Brussels and Moscow, saying it had no plans to meet with Ukrainian envoys, RFE/RL. But a separate Ukrainian delegation is expected to hold talks in the Russian capital. As reported earlier, on December 3, Ukraine's Prime Minister claimed the government is sending official delegations to Moscow and Brussels amid ongoing antigovernment demonstrations. According to Azarov, delegation had to discuss the "possibility of signing an agreement on European integration on conditions that are favorable for Ukraine."
