The chain begins on the Kiev's Independence Square  and, according to the organizers, must end at the border with Poland, the nearest EU country bordering the Ukraine. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych told an EU summit on Friday that Kiev wanted to sign a historic pact with the bloc "in the near future" but needed economic and financial aid. The European Union will not accept a Russia "veto" or any other meddling in its ties with other nations, European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso said Friday.

Ukrainian students stand hand in hand as part of a human chain organised by pro-EU protesters to symbolise the unity of Ukraine with Europe. The chain, pictured here in front of a portrait of jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko, began in Kiev’s Independence Square and snaked out along a passing thoroughfare in the capital.
