Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich and opposition leaders have agreed to an early presidential elections before the end of the year.

According to some news agencies, the police is already leaving the Maidan.

The election is part of a deal to end the country's political crisis.

The deal has not been published, but Yanukovich referred to a national unity government and constitutional changes reducing the president's power.

The compromise came after hours of talks between mediated by three European foreign ministers.

Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski tweeted that the deal was a "good compromise for Ukraine" which would open the way "to reform and to Europe".

According to Ukrainian media, the main points in the agreement are the restoration of the 2004 constitution will  within 48 hours and the forming of a national unity government within 10 days.

Constitutional reform balancing the powers of president, government and parliament will be started immediately and completed by September.

An presidential election will be held after the new constitution is adopted but no later than December 2014.

......are You OK, kinhell? Being brainwashed-as it was in 2008, when barbarical Saakashvili' attack on South Ossetia was "presented" by World media to You, poor thing, and to all those alike, as "Russian aggression"-
You call the armed bandits from "Right Sector" of Dmitro Yarosh, You call them "heroes"!!! Meanwhile the heroes, the REAL heroes, are "Bercut" people, who defended the Govt buildings, who were prohibited to use arms when they were attacked, wounded, killed by the "peaceful"-though "a bit" armed- Right Sector, Bercut, who defended the President's office and was betrayed just by that damned President, Bercut, who-as a result of that IDIOTIC "Peace Agreement"-has left Kiev....Btw, right now the capital of Ukraine is in the hands of those "Right Sector" bandits, who HEAVILY PISS on that "Peace-Piss Agreement" and promise to continue their "deeds": “The agreements that were reached do not correspond to our aspirations. Right Sector WILL NOT lay down arms. Right Sector will not lift the blockade of a single administrative building until our main demand is met: the resignation of Yanukovych. If he doesn't sign his resignation till 10AM of tomorrow, we will start the
armed attack on the President's Offices. And we are ready to take responsibility for the further development of the revolution.” /Dmitro Yarosh, Leader of "Right Sector"/.
Switch on the brain, kinhell, and do not insult by Your idiotic exclamations the memory of those who defended
the order, who were prohibited by the President-Traitor to reply by fire on the fire attacks and who were killed
by the armed bandits, bandits who were/are openly supported by the Western scum (Ashton, McCain, Van Rompuy, Štefan Füle, Nuland...). Switch on the brain, kinhell......................

Police left the Maidan, but not the zombie protestors. It is obvious that these vagabonds want to cause turmoil.
