The threat of new protest violence in Ukraine is tapering off but the country's two-month-old political and economic crisis remains far from being resolved, the European Union's foreign policy chief said Wednesday.EU envoy Catherine Ashton spoke after meeting with President Viktor Yanukovych, who has been the focus of months of massive protests demanding his resignation.Ashton met Tuesday evening with one of the opposition leaders heading the protests against Yanukovych, which erupted over his decision to shun the EU and turn to Moscow for a desperately needed rescue loan instead.Yanukovych subsequently obtained a $15 billion aid package from Russian President Vladimir Putin, including getting lower gas prices from Russia.
