Russian Prime MInister Vladimir Putin is looking forward to rebuilding ties with Kyiv.
The prime ministers of Russia and Ukraine are meeting in Moscow for talks on natural gas supplies and prospects for Russian investments in Ukraine.

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will meet his counterpart, Mykola Azarov.

Moscow hopes will help rebuild ties after years of frosty relations with Ukraine's former pro-Western leaders.

Ukraine's new leaders have said cutting Russian natural-gas prices is a top priority.

Reuters reports that Moscow will likely tell Kyiv to share natural-gas pipelines and return property taken from Russian businesses by Ukraine's former leaders if it wants to see a cut in its Russian natural-gas prices.
