The European Union's foreign policy chief is meeting with Ukraine's embattled president on Wednesday as the country's two-month-old political crisis is bogged down in a stalemate. The opposition accuses President Viktor Yanukovych's government of trying to conduct a war of attrition. Catherine Ashton's meeting with Yanukovych was announced on Twitter by her spokeswoman, Maja Kocijancic, without details. She met Tuesday evening with the opposition leader heading the massive protests against Yanukovych, which erupted over his decision to shun the 28-nation EU and turn to Moscow for a desperately needed rescue loan.
