Polish foreign minister Radoslaw Sikorski was overheard warning a member of the Ukrainian opposition that President Yanukovich would impose martial law if protesters did not support a deal with the government Mr Sikorski was caught on camera telling a protest leader: "If you don't support this [deal] you'll have martial law, you'll have the army. You will all be dead." When asked by ITV News whether he thought he had managed to persuade the opposition, Mr Sikorski appeared to reply: "I don't know." Ukraine opposition leaders later signed an EU-mediated peace deal with President Viktor Yanukovich, aiming to end a violent standoff that has left dozens dead and opening the way for a early presidential election this year.
