Schuster's meetings with Kuchma criticized

PRESIDENT Rudolf Schuster spent part of his summer break in Ukraine meeting his counterpart Leonid Kuchma, whom the western world has condemned for his lack of respect for democratic rule.

Schuster has already been censured for his friendly links with Kuchma but he has not accepted that criticism.
