KIEV, April 26 (Reuters) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk will return to Kiev from a visit to Italy on Saturday, a day earlier than planned, his office said.

"We are returning today because of the situation in the country," a spokeswoman for Yatseniuk told Reuters.

Yatseniuk had planned to attend the canonisation ceremonies on Sunday for former Roman Catholic pontiffs John Paul II and John XXIII. (Reporting by Pavel Polityuk; Writing by Christian Lowe)
