KIEV, Ukraine - Next month's soccer friendly between the U.S. and Ukraine has been moved to Cyprus due to the political situation.

U.S. officials had requested the March 5 game be played outside the country. It was due to be held in the eastern city of Kharkiv.

The host city and kick-off time of the rescheduled game will be announced later.

Scores of people were killed in anti-government protests last week which led to the ousting of Ukraine's president.
