Ukraine: No new government before Thursday

– The European Union’s top foreign policy official has urged Ukraine’s new government to work out a reform program so that the West could consider financial aid to the country’s battered economy.

Catherine Ashton spoke on Tuesday after meeting with the leaders of Ukraine’s interim authorities formed after President Viktor Yanukvoych fled the capital.

The Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday delayed the formation of a new government, reflecting political tensions and economic challenges.

Law enforcement agencies have issued an arrest warrant for Yanukovych over the killing of 82 people, mostly protesters. He was reportedly last seen in the pro-Russian Crimean peninsula.
