Russia accused Ukraine on Friday of using "totalitarian methods" in its ban on Soviet-era symbols and names.

"Kiev used truly totalitarian methods, attacking freedom of the press, opinion or conscience," the Russian foreign ministry said in a statement, also accusing Ukraine of "rewriting history". Ukraine's parliament voted on Thursday to ban communist-era and Nazi symbols in a bid to break with the country's past.
