US frowns on Ukraine demo crackdown
(12-11 20:42)

A top US diplomat told Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych Wednesday that a crackdown on pro-EU protesters was “absolutely inadmissible'' and stressed there was still a way for the ex-Soviet country to become part of Europe.
“It was a tough conversation, but realistic one,'' US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland said after meeting Yanukovych. “I made it absolutely clear to him that what happened last night was absolutely inadmissible in a democratic state. We believe there is still a way out for Ukraine to save Ukraine's European future.''--AFP
