The Muslim Brotherhood said it condemned the situation in Ukraine, but was frustrated with the lack of focus on Egypt.
Mohammed Morsi, a political leader from the Muslim Brotherhood, became president in 2012 in Egypt's first ever democratic election. He was ousted by the military in July in a move the Muslim Brotherhood said was a coup.
"While the criminal brutality in Ukraine is certainly reprehensible, it is nothing compared with the coup regime's repressive crimes in Egypt," the movement said in a statement Friday.
A policy brief published by the European Union in February said it was concerned by the lack of political space in Egypt more than three years after a revolution unseated former President Hosni Mubarak. The Muslim Brotherhood said the EU fell short, however, because it didn't describe Morsi's ouster as a military coup.
Ahram Online, an Egyptian news agency, said there were minor clashes reported in the country between pro-Morsi and pro-government forces. No major injuries or deaths were reported.
