President Viktor Yanukovych met in Washington with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, presidential press office reported.

At the meeting President Medvedev said that Russia is ready to discuss new Ukrainian proposals about gas prices and offered to consider this issue at the level of core departments of the two countries.

This subject is very important for Ukraine. Despite the fact that we currently have signed agreements, the matter must be reviewed and processed at the level of core departments of both countries, he said.

"In the scope of what we have discussed during your recent private visit to Moscow, in order to implement those proposals that we have discussed, I believe it is reasonable to "synchronize watches” and initiate additional actions by the ministries and departments", said President Medvedev, addressing his Ukrainian colleague.

Viktor Yanukovych said that the issue of price for Russian gas occupies Ukraine. He also noted that there are many issues that have accumulated over the years - not only the last five, but before. They must be addressed.

Dmitry Medvedev, in turn, drew attention to the fact that the leaders of Russia and Ukraine recently have been meeting very often.

"As promised to our citizens, we meet often. This fact inspires me. Particularly because there was a time when I practically was not seeing the leadership of Ukraine at all", said President Medvedev, adding that the rate of current cooperation of Ukraine and Russia “corresponds with the interest of our countries and peoples”. He acknowledged that a lot of problems have accumulated in the bilateral relations but there are also many constructive ideas.
