"I welcome today’s vote by the Ukrainian Parliament which was overwhelmingly in favour of a return to the 2004 constitution. This is an important first step in implementing the agreement signed this morning between the President and the opposition.

"I urge all sides to adhere to the agreement in good faith to ensure a peaceful political settlement, including a return to the 2004 constitution, a government of national unity and early elections.

"The vote to decriminalise a number of articles under the criminal procedure code is significant, including the possible implications for Mrs Tymoshenko. We need to see progress towards establishing a fairer and more transparent justice system in Ukraine. The United Kingdom will work to support these positive developments over the coming days and weeks."
