Ukraine's government intends to abide by agreements on natural gas imports from Russia in effect since the beginning of the year, Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych said Monday, RIA Novosti reported.

"We are not planning to review natural gas contracts with Russia for 2006, but we will be seeking transparency in our cooperation next year," Yanukovych, who is widely expected to pursue closer economic ties with Moscow, told a press conference.

He said that changes in gas cooperation were possible only if Russia agreed to cut the price for its supplies to Ukraine.

"If we manage to lower the price by at least a dollar, it will be a success," Yanukovych said.
