BRUSSELS, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday he did not understand NATO's condemnation of Ukraine authorities for using excessive force against protesters and urged outsiders not to interfere in the situation there.

"I don't understand why NATO adopts such statements," Lavrov told a news conference after meeting NATO foreign ministers in Brussels, referring to an alliance statement issued on Tuesday.

"I hope that Ukrainian politicians will be able to bring the situation into a peaceful vein. We encourage everybody not to interfere," Lavrov said, speaking through an interpreter. (Reporting by Adrian Croft; editing by David Brunnstrom)
