MOSCOW, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Talks between EU foreign ministers, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich, opposition leaders and lawmakers to broker a political settlement are nearing an end, an EU source said on Friday.

The ministers, from Germany, France and Poland, have been talking for hours in what they have called "difficult negotiations" to try to forge a plan to end the crisis which has turned violent, killing 75 people in two days.
