It is necessary to look for a political solution of the current tense situation in Ukraine via dialog with the opposition and civil society, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said when talking on the telephone with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

The European Commission released a statement regarding the topic in Brussels on Sunday.

"He [Barroso] recalled the need to respect and to exert maximum restraint. He announced that the High Representative/Vice-President, Catherine Ashton, would travel to Kiеv this week to support a way out of the political crisis," the statement said.
