Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich and visiting Russian Premier Vladimir Putin have met in Crimea. The two leaders say both countries are making good progress across various economic spheres.

Meeting at the Ukrainian President's residence, the two leaders say there has been an improvement in bilateral trade and economic co-operation despite the economic downturn in 2009.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said, "It's very good that you have come here on the eve of the Russian Navy Day celebrations. We planned and discussed earlier that we need to unite the efforts of Ukraine and Russia to raise economic productivity in our countries."

Putin said he was particularly satisfied with Russian-Ukrainian co-operation in high-tech sectors.

Russian Premier Vladimir Putin said, "As a matter of fact, the trade turnover between our countries, despite the drastic decline in 2009, has reached the pre-crisis level and we see improvement across various spheres. Among the high-tech sectors, I would emphasize the aircraft and space industries. We are making good progress in developing the Antonov-70 transport aircraft project and now moving forward with the joint production of Antonov-148."

Meanwhile, a Russian news agency says Russia plans to buy two models of a Ukrainian-designed aircraft as part of its new arms procurement program for 2011-2020.
