MOSCOW: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the West on Wednesday of putting pressure on Ukraine to choose closer ties with Europe even though Kiev has accepted an offer of financial assistance from Moscow.

Russia is "surprised by attempts to put overt pressure on the Ukrainian government, which continue despite the decisions made in Moscow yesterday," Lavrov said in remarks to Russia's upper house of parliament.
