By Katie Bacharach

The European Union has agreed to impose sanctions on Ukrainian officials “responsible for violence and excessive force” after the bloodiest day of clashes in Kiev, according to the BBC

Seventy-five people have been killed since Tuesday, with some anti-government protesters reportedly being killed by snipers. 

E.U. foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said that the “prime responsibility” to get talks started  between the two sides lay with President Viktor Yanukovych and that implementation of the measures “will be taken forward in light of developments in Ukraine.”
