Further information

Speaking at an EU meeting in Lithuania, EU Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso said "The EU will not accept a "veto" by Russia on the bloc's ties with former Soviet republics. The era of "limited sovereignty is over in Europe".

The summit failed to revive an association agreement with Ukraine that was due to be its centrepiece.

Ukraine's president said he could not afford to sacrifice trade with Russia - which opposes the deal - for EU ties. [1]
