Moscow accuses EU of following US in Ukraine crisis
(04-29 17:46)

Moscow on Tuesday accused the European Union of following the United States in the Ukraine crisis, after the bloc unveiled a new set of sanctions against Moscow.
"Instead of forcing the Kiev clique to sit down at the negotiating table with the southeast of Ukraine over the future makeup of the country, our partners are doing Washington's bidding with new unfriendly gestures towards Russia,'' the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement. "Are you not ashamed?''
Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin for his part said that the sanctions were an "absolutely counterproductive'' measure which was driving the crisis towards "a dead end,'' the state RIA Novosti news angecy reported. --AFP
