Ukraine's Yanukovich tells Putin he hopes for gas deal

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday that he hoped for a mutually beneficial gas deal between Russia's Gazprom and Ukraine's Naftogaz.

Ukraine wants to secure new loans from Russia to help fend off an economic crisis after it spurned a trade deal with the European Union, although any deals reached at talks in the Kremlin could fuel anti-government protests in Kiev.
