The new government will be symbolically revealed on Kiev's Independence Square, the epicentre of three months of protests that culminated in carnage last week that triggered the weekend ouster of president Viktor Yanukovych.US Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Secretary William Hague also rejected Russia's claim on Tuesday that Ukraine was being forced to make a choice between the East and West.EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton wrapped up a two-day visit to Kiev on Tuesday by mentioning only a "short term" economic solution for Ukraine while saying nothing about extending the billions of dollars in credit requested by interim leader Oleksandr Turchynov.Britain's Hague is expected in Ukraine shortly while US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns arrived on Tuesday for a meeting with Turchynov expected to be held later on Wednesday.The line of Western dignitaries now treading their way to Ukraine contrasts sharply with Russia's decision to withdraw its Kiev ambassador in a sign of displeasure with the meteoric pace of change in the neighbouring nation that Putin still views as a part of Russia's domain.
