EU's Ashton to Ukraine for two-day visit: Commission

BRUSSELS (AFP) - The European Union's top foreign policy official, Catherine Ashton, will travel to Ukraine on Tuesday for a two-day visit after hundreds of thousands of demonstrators protested against the rejection of an EU pact, the Commission said.

"She's expected to meet all the main stakeholders on both sides ... as well as civil society," a commission spokesman told a regular news briefing on Monday.
