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.
