Yanukovych highly appraises declaration on Ukrainian-Russian strategic partnership

Russian President Vladimir Putin in turn made a point that the Declaration is a fundamental document Ukraine and Russia had never had before, according to the posting. "It does reflect the priority aspects of our cooperation," Putin said, adding that it deals, among other things, with political and economic cooperation.
Putin also said that the Declaration has laid the groundwork for Ukrainian-Russian interaction in almost all of the most essential spheres.
