Ukraine's pro-Western interim leaders were set to unveil their new cabinet today after disbanding the feared riot police as they sought to build confidence in the splintered and economically ravaged ex-Soviet nation.

The new government will be symbolically revealed on Kiev's Independence Square, the epicentre of three months of protests that culminated in carnage last week and triggered the weekend ouster of president Viktor Yanukovych.

The temporary authorities in Kiev are grappling with the dual threats of separatism and a looming debt default as they try to piece the ex-Soviet nation back together following the months of turmoil.
