KIEV, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Three European Union foreign ministers left Kiev on Thursday without seeing President Viktor Yanukovich after violence between police and protesters exploded in the city centre, leaving many people dead.

"They have left. They did not see the President for security reasons," said a diplomatic source.

The three ministers - from Poland, Germany and France - had been due to see Yanukovich in efforts to promote a political compromise to the crisis convulsing the country, now in its third month. (Writing By Richard Balmforth; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
