Ukraine on Monday said the introduction of a state of emergency was not yet on the agenda after radicals seized the justice ministry in Kiev in an attack that raised concerns of a derailing of talks to ease the crisis.With concern growing in the West that the situation in Ukraine was spiralling out of control, the country's worst crisis since independence was also set to dominate an EU-Russia summit on Tuesday.The rebellion has now spread well beyond Kiev, with protesters occupying regional administrations in all but one region in the west of the country which has traditionally been anti-Yanukovych.Protesters have now blockaded or attempted to blockade 14 of the 25 regional administrations across Ukraine.The meeting -- already shortened to less than three hours -- is expected to be shadowed by tensions over Ukraine, with Moscow slamming protesters as extremists but the West worried about police violence.The European Union's enlargement commissioner Stefan Fuele was returning to Ukraine on Monday for more talks just three days after his last meeting with Yanukovych, the commission said.
