 Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in the near future will visit Russia, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said.


"Our president is intending to make a working visit to China next week. It is an extremely important trip. In China we will sign a cooperation program. The program contains a specific plan with specific volumes. Now it is an extremely important support for us," Azarov said in an interview with the TSN TV program.

"Well, of course, afterwards the president will visit Russia, where we also plan to sign and formalize "the road map of cooperation," which will foresee the establishment of a normal trade and economic regime," he added.

The Web site of the president of Ukraine contains information about his official visit to China on December 3-6.
