The leading Ukrainian communications operator UkrTelecom announced plans to set up a joint venture with the largest world's mobile communications operator Vodafone,Cabinet press office informs.

The companies conduct talks on developing mobile communications of the third generation (3G). According to experts, the most expected type of cooperation is a transfer of a portion of the corporate rights of the UkrTelecom's daughter company Utel to the Vodafone.
