A statement posted on Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich's website states that a deal has been reached to resolve the current crisis after all-night talks between the government, after foreign ministers from France, Germany and Poland met with him and with the opposition.
"After negotiations through the night, talks ended at 7:20," was Poland's top diplomat's cryptic message on the meetings.
But previous recent talks ended with results that sounded good but ended in disaster.
Twice before, this week, there were some concessions and a truce. But they broke down into the heaviest bloodshed seen in this standoff on Kiev's streets that has dragged on since November.
