White House confirms talks with Ukraine's Yatseniuk in Washington this week

FLORIDA CITY, Florida (Reuters) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk will visit Washington this week for talks as tensions build over Russian forces' seizure of the Crimea, a White House official confirmed on Sunday.

No other details about the talks were immediately available from Washington officials. Yatseniuk announced his plans for the trip earlier Sunday at government meeting in Kiev.
