KIEV, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Ukraine's parliament on Friday voted heavily in favour of returning to the constitution of 2004 under which President Viktor Yanukovich will lose some of his powers.

The constitutional move was part of an EU-brokered agreement signed between Yanukovich and opposition leaders to end a crisis which has sparked mass street protests and violence in the capital Kiev.
