The White House on Saturday urged Ukraine to move swiftly to form a unity government and help restore order after a spate of deadly violence. Months of protests turned violent this week, with scores killed in clashes between demonstrators and police.
Under a European-mediated plan, protest leaders and President Viktor Yanukovych agreed Friday to form a new government and hold early elections. Parliament slashed the president's powers and voted to release his chief rival, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, from prison. (AP)
