The European Union has outlined reforms in Ukraine as a major condition for the provision of financial assistance to the country, EU Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule has said.
"With regard to financial assistance, there are conditions. These conditions are the following: reforms, reforms, reforms," he said at a press conference in Kyiv, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
Fule has also called on Ukrainian leaders and the opposition to take urgent measures to form a coalition government as a way out a nearly three-month-long political crisis.
Fule arrived in Kyiv on February 11 for talks with President Viktor Yanukovych, opposition leaders, and members of civil society in a bid to help defuse the standoff between authorities and antigovernment protesters.
At a press conference in Kyiv on February 13, opposition leaders reiterated that they would not take part in any government while Yanukovych remains in power.
