BRUSSELS, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Sweden's Foreign Minister has denounced Ukraine's president for "double standards" and Russia for "lies and disinformation" during talks on Ukraine's association agreement with the European Union.
"We are ready to negotiate but for this to happen, Ukraine needs a stance that we do not see now," he said.
Referring to negotiations on EU association in the town of Vilnius, Lithuania, Bildt said Ukraine's President Yanukovich "has shown nothing but double standards", Sweden's minister said.
"In Vilnius, he says he is eager to sign the agreement, then he pledges to try in court those who prepared the document and finally refers to Brussels the first deputy prime minister who says nothing," the minister said.
Bildt criticized Russia for a propaganda campaign launched against Ukraine "based on lies and disinformation" as well as "economic repression measures against Ukraine".
