Ukraine protest laws 'anti-democratic': Kerry

17th January 2014, Comments 0 comments

New laws "rammed through" the Ukraine parliament to curb protests are "anti-democratic," US Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday, adding that the legislation also violated EU norms.

"We believe deeply that the people of Ukraine want to affiliate, they want to be associated with Europe," Kerry said, noting the new laws "are anti-democratic, they're wrong, they are taking from the people of Ukraine, their choice and their opportunity for the future."
