Foreign Minister Carl Bildt to visit Ukraine

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt travels to Ukraine Wednesday to meet with the country's interim prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

"We know each other rather well and have been in contact the past few weeks", Bildt says to news agency TT.

Carl Bildt will be joined by Danish Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard as they visit both the capital Kiev and the tense regions in the eastern parts of Ukraine. 

American Foreign Minister John Kerry visited Kiev Tuesday and presented several possible financial sanctions that Russia could face should they decide not to pull out their troops from Ukraine. Kerry also promised Ukraine a loan of USD 1 million.
