Europe and the United States Monday mulled a financial aid plan to help resolve Ukraine's crisis in a boost for the opposition as it prepared to press its demands in Parliament.EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton is due in Kiev this week, along with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, as thousands of protesters remain camped out in the capital and across Ukraine.
