Yanukovych calls for EU economic aid before integration


Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych said on Friday that Kiev needed economic and financial support from the European Union before it could sign a political and free trade deal with the bloc.

"We need our European colleagues to take decisive steps toward Ukraine when it comes to the development and realisation of a programme of financial and economic aid," Yanukovych told a regional summit in Vilnius in comments released by his office.
