A Ukrainian protest leader who says he was abducted and tortured for eight days has described his captors as "professional".

Dmytro Bulatov was offered medical treatment by Lithuania, where he arrived on Sunday.

Protests have gripped Ukraine since the government rejected a far-reaching accord with the EU in favour of stronger ties with Russia in November 2013.

Speaking on Thursday, Mr Bulatov - who has become a new rallying point for protesters - told reporters he had been beaten, choked and interrogated.
