EU ministers win Ukraine protesters' backing for deal - EU source

KIEV (Reuters) - Two European Union ministers won backing for a draft agreement on resolving the crisis in Ukraine from a council representing protesters on Kiev's Independence Square on Friday, a European Union diplomat said.

Opposition from the protesters has become the main obstacle to a deal between the opposition and President Viktor Yanukovich that would allow early presidential elections.
