Russian EU ambassador Chizhov has scorned the bloc's decision to freeze talks on visa-free travel, telling Itar-Tass the talks were de facto frozen "a long while ago." He noted the decision to sign the political part of an EU treaty with Ukraine leaves out the "substantive, economic part"on free trade.
