KIEV, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich met his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, in Sochi on Friday and discussed "preparations for a future agreement on strategic partnership", Yanukovich's presidential website said in a statement.

Yanukovich flew to the Russian resort city on his way home from a state visit to China, with Ukraine in turmoil over his government's decision to spurn a trade pact with the European Union in favour of closer ties with former Soviet master Moscow.
