Aide: Yanukovych won’t leave country

KIEV, Ukraine – A top aide to Ukraine’s beleaguered president says he has no intention of leaving the country.

Hanna Herman, a close ally of President Viktor Yanukovych, tells The Associated Press the president is visiting Kharkiv, a city in Ukraine’s east which is the heart of his support.

The trip comes a day after Yanukovych and opposition leaders signed an agreement aimed at resolving Ukraine’s bloody political crisis. The agreement calls for early elections and constitutional reform that reduce the president’s powers.
