Ukraine's deputy prime minister in talks with EU commissioner

Talks about a trade agreement between Ukraine and the EU resumed today in Brussels.

Europe’s Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Füle sat down with Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Serhiy Arbuzov.

That’s despite Ukraine refusing to sign the deal last month.

But Füle says the EU is ready to move ahead.

“The offer is still on the table. (The) European Union remains ready to sign it as soon as (the) Ukranian authorities are ready.”

The decision not to come to an agreement with the EU led to massive demonstrations in Ukraine.

It’s now four weeks since a protest camp was set up in Independence Square in the capital Kyiv.

Demonstrators have strengthened barricades following police action. Despite the bitter cold, the protesters remain.
