Angered by what it regards as Moscow's continued domination, the Ukrainian Parliament on Tuesday approved a program that will speed up the country's economic break with Russia and reorient it toward the West. President Leonid Kravchuk, blaming Ukraine's sharp economic downturn on Russian policies, warned deputies that "mass unemployment, increasing inflation and a worsening of social conditions await us" unless the country takes full control of its own economy.

KIEV, Ukraine - Ukraine's acting government issued an arrest warrant for President Viktor Yanukovich on Monday and warned the international community that the country needs $35 billion in aid to avert default. Yanukovich slipped out of Kiev on Friday after signing a European Union-brokered agreement that ended bloody confrontation between police and opposition demonstrators by calling for an interim, multiparty government and early elections to replace the effectively deposed head of state.

Ukraine announced Thursday that it was suspending its bid to join the European Union in favor of working toward better trade ties with Russia, a sign of the Kremlin's success in keeping a former Soviet republic within its political orbit. Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said his government made the decision to turn East rather than West "with the aim of adopting measures to ensure national security. " The statement followed the Ukrainian parliament's rejection earlier Thursday of six different measures that would have let jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko leave the country for medical treatment abroad.
