Russia on Monday accused the European Union of putting pressure on Bulgaria to suspend work on a key Kremlin-backed gas pipeline, and said eastward expansion by NATO was "counterproductive".Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said EU member state Bulgaria's move to halt work on the South Stream gas pipeline suggested the bloc was seeking revenge over the Ukraine crisis. Russia's top diplomat said the EU should stop pressing Ukraine to choose between Russia and the West, saying all three parties should find a way to cooperate in a three-way format.
