EU rejects Russia 'veto' on Ukraine

The EU will not accept a "veto" by Russia on the bloc's ties with former Soviet republics, European Commission chief Manuel Barroso has said.

Speaking at a EU meeting in Vilnius, Mr Barroso said the era of "limited sovereignty was over in Europe".

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

Chris Morris reports from the summit in Lithuania.
