Russia say EU seeking 'sphere of influence' in Ukraine

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the European Union on Friday of seeking to create a "sphere of influence" by pressing Ukraine to choose closer ties with the bloc at the expense of relations with Russia.

Lavrov made the remark at a joint news conference after talks with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
