YEREVAN, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday described protests in Ukraine against its decision to abandon an EU integration pact as an attempt to shake the country's legitimate rulers and said they had been incited by outside actors.

"This reminds me more of a pogrom than a revolution," Putin told reporters on a visit to Armenia. (Reporting by Alexei Anishchuk Writing by Alissa de Carbonnel; Editing by Douglas Busvine)
