BRUSSELS, Jan 22 (Reuters) - The European Union could take action against Ukraine after reports that at least three demonstrators died there during overnight violence, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso said on Wednesday.

Barroso said the European Union was shocked by the deaths, deplored the use of force and called on all sides to immediately halt violence.

"We will continue following closely these developments as well as assess possible actions by the EU and consequences for our relations with that country," Barroso told reporters. (Reporting by Adrian Croft; editing by Robin Emmott)
