Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said Wednesday he had agreed a "truce" with opposition leaders, after street violence in which at least 26 people were killed.The development comes after Western powers threatened sanctions Wednesday over the death of 26 people in the worst violence since Ukraine's independence from the Soviet Union, pressuring President Viktor Yanukovich to compromise with his pro-EU opponents.EU officials said Yanukovich himself would not be on the list to keep channels of dialogue open.Protesters have been occupying central Kiev for almost three months since Yanukovich spurned a trade deal with the EU and accepted a $15 billion Russian bailout instead.A ministry official said 263 protesters were being treated for injuries and 342 police officers, mainly with gunshot wounds.
