Russian President Vladimir Putin has told Germany's visiting foreign
minister that he would welcome closer economic ties between the European
Union and Ukraine.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier met Putin and his Russian
counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow.
Putin's reported remarks appear to contradict Lavrov's earlier comment
accusing the EU of looking to create a "sphere of infuence".
