(CNN) — Ukrainian interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk will fly to the United States this week to discuss the crisis in Crimea, a spokeswoman in his press office said Sunday.

Yatsenyuk is expected to arrive in the United States on Wednesday, she told CNN. She gave no further details.

Hostilities intensified in Crimea on Saturday as Ukrainian officials accused pro-Russian forces of armed aggression and President Barack Obama rounded up world leaders to demand Russia “de-escalate the situation.”
