A representative Ukrainian delegation will be heading for Moscow and Brussels on Wednesday, a day after the country's Verkhovna Rada (Parliament) rejected the no-confidence vote against the government.

Among the tasks of the delegation is the discussion on the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, said the country's Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara.

The parties will discuss the issue of gas prices, cooperation with financial international institutions, the decrease of the turnover between Ukraine and the EU, the minister said, as cited by RIA Novosti.

No further details were disclosed.

Meanwhile Yanukovych flew to China on a long-planned trip on Wednesday, after which he is due in Moscow.

A huge rally took place in the Ukrainian capital on Sunday to oppose a government decision not to sign a deal on closer EU ties, despite a ban.

Casualties were reported on the fringes of the rally after clashes near the office of the president.

Protesters are demanding the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych's government and new elections. President Yanukovych says Russian pressure was behind his decision not to sign the deal.
