Ukraine pays $95 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas, and Yanukovych said Ukraine would seek to keep this price at least until the end of the year.
Yanukovych's comments followed talks with Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov in Moscow.
Interfax quotes the Russian prime minister as saying that the meeting took place in the "atmosphere favorable for finding mutually acceptable solutions."
Yanukovych met Russian President Vladimir Putin on September 21.
