MOSCOW (AFP) - Russia on Tuesday slammed Europe's "indecent" support of protests against Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych after top United States and European Union officials met with leaders of the opposition movement and visited their protest camp in Kiev.
"We would prefer it if some of our European colleagues did not behave in such an unceremonious manner over the Ukrainian crisis," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters.
"Members of several European governments rushed to the Maidan (Independence Square) without any invitation and took part in anti-government demonstrations in a country with which they have diplomatic ties. This is simply indecent."
