Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is to meet her Russian opposite number, Vladimir Putin, later this month, the Ukrainian government said in a statement on Friday, according to Reuters.

Tymoshenko, quoted by news agencies on a visit to central Ukraine, said differences between the two neighbours over how to modernise Ukraine`s gas transport system had been resolved.

Tymoshenko and Putin had been due to meet in Moscow at the beginning of April but Russia put off the talks after Moscow strongly objected to a Ukrainian plan to modernise its gas transport system together with the European Union.
