KIEV, April 21 (RIA Novosti) – US Vice President Joe Biden will meet acting Ukrainian President Oleksander Turchynov and Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk in Kiev on Tuesday, the White House has announced.

Biden is planning to meet with members of parliament and representatives of non-governmental organizations Tuesday to “discuss the international community's efforts to help stabilize and strengthen Ukraine's economy and to assist Ukraine in moving forward on constitutional reform, decentralization, anti-corruption efforts, and free and fair presidential elections on May 25th,” the White House said April 12.

"The vice president will also consult on the latest developments in eastern Ukraine and on steps to enhance Ukraine's short- and long-term energy security," the White House added.

A curfew has been announced in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slaviansk after a group of unknown gunmen launched a deadly attack on a checkpoint near the city early Sunday as people were celebrating Easter.
