KYIV (QHA) -

EU Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fule has met with Ukrainian opposition leaders in Kyiv, Radio Liberty reports.

Fule arrived in the Ukrainian capital earlier on February 11 in a fresh bid to help defuse the country's political crisis.

No details were released after the February 11 meeting. Fule is due to hold more talks on February 12.

Ukraine has been rocked by demonstrations since President Viktor Yanukovych pulled out of a deal on closer ties with the European Union last November.

On February 11, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said that EU relations with Ukraine would not "end" with the association agreement that Yanukovych shelved in favor of closer ties with Russia.

"The [Association] agreement is not the end. Now, there can be different interpretations of where the eventual relationship with Ukraine might go and if you put all the member states here they might have different interpretations. But were everybody agreed, because conclusions are always unanimous, was that it is not the end, that we want to strengthen and deepen the relationship beyond that," Ashton said.
