VILNIUS, December 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev has exhausted its credibility with the European Union over the Ukrainian authorities’ continuing use of force against pro-European Union protesters, said Linas Linkevicius, Foreign Minister of Lithuania, which is presiding over the EU Council.

“The Ukrainian authorities to a greater degree have lost their credibility with the European Union,” he said on Wednesday. “It can be restored only through observance of the European values.”

The Baltic state’s diplomat admitted that Kiev deliberately had done everything to disrupt dialogue with the EU. “It will be much more difficult to conduct this dialogue, even if it is possible at all,” Linkevicius said.

The authorities’ actions against protesters “contradict obligations and responsibility of Ukraine” as a country currently presiding over the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
