Leaked US call on Ukraine crisis: Excerpt

An apparently bugged phone conversation in which a senior US diplomat disparages the EU over the Ukraine crisis has been posted online.

A voice resembling that of Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland refers to the EU using a graphic swear word, in a conversation apparently with the US ambassador to Ukraine.

This excerpt from the call is explained by the BBC's Mark Mardell.
