EU poised for Ukraine sanctions, one protester killed in renewed clashes
(02-20 16:14)

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said today the European Union was preparing to impose sanctions against those behind Ukraine's violence this week.
In Independence Square today hundreds of armed protesters charged police barricades, despite a truce called just hours earlier by the country's embattled president, according to an AFP reporter on the scene.
At least one protester was killed and 10 wounded.
Speaking to Europe 1 radio from Ukraine before meeting with President Viktor Yanukovych, Fabius said: “I will tell him that he must stop the violence, which is obviously unacceptable, and that we are preparing this afternoon to take sanctions against those responsible for the violence.''
Protesters pushed the police back about 200 meters and were in control of most of the square they had occupied at the start of Ukraine's three-month-old political crisis. Police used rubber bullets to try and repel the attack while protesters pelted them with Molotov cocktails and rocks.
