    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin arrived in Ukraine for talks with President Viktor Yanukovych on Saturday.

    Putin and Yanukovych will discuss "current issues of Russian-Ukrainian cooperation and other questions of bilateral interest," according to the Russian government's press service.

    Yanukovych met with Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on Friday.

    Russia-Ukraine ties have strengthened significantly since Yanukovych replaced pro-Western Viktor Yushchenko as president in late February.
