The opposition leaders Arseniy Yatseniuk (Batkivschyna), Vitali Klitschko (UDAR), and Oleh Tiahnybok (Freedom) have met with the foreign ministers Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, Laurent Fabius of France and Radoslaw Sikorski of Poland, reports Interfax-Ukraine.

Lappo said the meeting had addressed the possible ways of stopping the bloodshed and preventing further escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.

"The only way to do that is to create a demilitarized zone and take the conflict to parliament," Lappo quoted Yatseniuk as saying.

Klitschko, for his part, blamed the current events in central Kyiv on the authorities, reiterated that the only way to stop the bloodshed is "full resignation of the administration."

"A truce was declared. It was violated by the Berkut police, who tried to burn down the Conservatory… That was the end of the truce," Klitschko was quoted as saying by his press officer Oksana Zynovyeva.

Klitschko also restated that the protesters "stayed peaceful at night, but they were deceived."
