MOSCOW, Dec 28 (Reuters) - Russia's Foreign Ministry accused the United States and European nations of seeking to influence the trial of jailed tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky on Tuesday and called such efforts "unacceptable".

In a statement, the Foreign Ministry also rejected as groundless Western officials' suggestions that the trial of Khodorkovsky, who was found guilty on Monday of theft and money laundering, was an example of selective justice.
