KIEV, December 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev sees its top priority in settling the gas issue in its relations with Russia, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said on Tuesday at a meeting with his predecessors, Leonid Kravchuk, Leonid Kuchma and Viktor Yushchenko, telecast by the First National television channel.

“This is the issue to be settled first of all,” Yanukovich stressed. “Russia has already agreed to discuss this subject, since it would face similar economic losses if it loses the Ukrainian market.
