MOSCOW Dec 6 (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Friday called participation by foreign officials in the political events unfolding in Ukraine "interference", rebuking the German foreign minister for a visit to an opposition protest camp.

In a televised interview, Medvedev said it was fine for foreign officials to meet Ukrainian opposition leaders "but to participate in such events has, excuse me, a very simple name: interference in internal affairs." (Writing by Steve Gutterman; Editing by Douglas Busvine)
