Russia has recalled its ambassador in Ukraine for consultations on the "deteriorating situation" in Kiev, after the interim president said it was his priority to form closer ties with Europe.
"Due to the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the need for a comprehensive analysis of the situation, the decision was made to recall the Russian ambassador to Ukraine for consultations in Moscow," the ministry said in a statement.
Earlier, Oleksandr Turchynov said Ukraine's new leadership was ready for talks with Russia to put their relations on a "new, equal and good-neighbourly footing" which recognises the country's "European choice".
