Dec. 4 (UPI)-- After hundreds of thousands of protestors took to the streets in Kiev following the Ukrainian government's decision last month not to join the European Union, the Ukrainian government is now in talks with EU representatives to revisit the issue of membership.
Ukrainian officials have arranged meetings this week with EU representatives to discuss the road map to a future association with the EU. Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Arbuzov met with EU envoy to Ukraine Jan Tombinsky to establish next steps. A Ukrainian delegation will travel today to Brussels for additional meetings regarding EU membership. Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov added that another delegation would head to Moscow to discuss this development with Russia.
