Baltic leaders condemn violence in Ukraine, summon ambassadors

Dec 12, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Baltic leaders have once again condemned the use of violence during street protests in the Ukraine.

Ukrainian ambassadors in Lithuania and Latvia were summoned to the foreign  ministries on Dec. 11 over reports of the use of violence against pro EU protestors this week. 

Thousands of pro EU demonstrators remain on the streets in Kiev with calls for closer EU ties. It follows after Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych refused to sign an association agreement with the European Union.

Ukrainian police stormed a protest camp overnight on Wednesday, Dec. 11 leading to further scuffles and injuries.

World leaders have condemned the violence including Latvian Foreign Ministry Deputy State Secretary Eduards Stiprais. He said:  "Cynical actions by the Ukrainian authorities are aggravating the crisis, and they bear full responsibility for a possible escalation of violence. Violence in Kiev must stop, and a dialogue with the people must be launched," he added.

Meanwhile, Yanukovych has said he has not ruled out signing a deal but said close the rejection would protect the vulnerable in the country.

He has called for talks with opposition leaders. Opposition leaders are calling for the leaders resignation.

A no confidence vote against the government failed earlier this year.
