Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych have held talks in the Black Sea resort city of Yalta.

It was Putin's first visit to Ukraine since he returned to the presidency in May.

The presidents discussed Ukrainian purchases of Russian natural gas, but no agreement was reached.

Kyiv has been seeking a renegotiation of a 2009 agreement that it claims set exorbitant prices. Moscow says any discount would depend on Ukraine allowing Russian state gas giant Gazprom to take over the country's gas-transport system or join a Russian-led customs union uniting Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia.

The two leaders agreed on an additional summit in Russia later this year and another visit by Putin to Ukraine in 2013.

While Ukraine close, conviniently, forums on Timoshenko,
Ger Muller squizing on neck of Ukraine imperial "udavka"
And a Prince from "Pure Nastya", Putin playing "kafka",
Ukraine forgetting "Orange Spring" and Yush'enko.

There is an evil symbolics of Russian imperialism.
Litvinenko reminded Unia, poisoned by "Polonium".
Timoshenko reminded WW2, Ukrainians heroism,
Busted-up, while Russia rob CIS - turn Capitalism.
Yush'enko reminded "2 osiny" of West Ukrainium.

New Russia saluted Zcar's Village in Sweezerland
Blowed Bashkir children being invited by UNESKO
In 1990-th, now is 20012, they get us in other lands.
For political speech they use poison and infections,
They already killed my mother 7/72012 - using CIA.
