Brussels, Nov. 22 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych has said he will meet with the initiators of the movement against the Tax Code this week.
"I will listen to them and I will hear them. Of course, I will meet with activists of the public organizations which have initiated this process and this movement. I think substantive talks will be held this week," Yanukovych said at a joint news conference with the European Council and European Commission presidents after the EU-Ukraine summit in Brussels on Monday.
