Ukraine is ready to buy more Russian gas if its price is acceptable to the country, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych said in interview with representatives of Ukrainian media.

"As for the amount of consumption: if there is a gas price that suits us, we are interested in consuming more Russian gas than other gas that is more expensive. That is, we'll consume gas that is cheaper," he told reporters, when asked whether the amount of gas consumption was changed after the agreements reached in Moscow on December 17.

The President also noted that consumers will have a choice due to the significant liberalization of the gas market in recent years.
