Agreement on resolving the bloody political crisis has been reached following all-night talks involving President Viktor Yanukovych, the opposition, and EU ministers, according to Ukraine's presidential press service, RFE/RL reports.
In a statement, it said the deal would be initialed at noon local time on February 21, but gave no details.
The opposition and three EU foreign ministers from Germany, Poland, and France did not immediately confirm that agreement had been reached.
Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski tweeted that "after negotiations through the night, talks ended" at 7:20 a.m. in Kyiv, but did not elaborate.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has since urged caution over talk of a deal, while the German Foreign Ministry said "very difficult negotiations" had taken place through the night and that a "break" was taking place to continue talks "later on."
Late on February 20, Ukraine's Parliament voted to order riot forces to leave the streets and return to their barracks.
