Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and the opposition have signed a deal aimed at ending the political crisis.
Opposition leaders had initially rejected claims that they had accepted the agreement.
The announcement followed all-night talks between the president and European foreign ministers.
Isolated outbursts of violence were reported in the centre of the capital Kiev on Friday morning, despite the deal.
On Thursday, Ukraine's parliament voted for a motion to halt attempts to clear Independence Square, which required ruling party MPs to break ranks with the president.
The BBC is on the front line in Independence Square as all sides consider their next move.
