Russia gas deal set to be signed

Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko is expected to fly to Moscow to sign a deal on gas prices, ending the 19-day dispute.

Experts from the two state energy companies have been finalising the text of the document after an agreement was reached on Saturday night.

The EU gave a guarded response to the deal, saying the crisis would only be over once gas supplies resumed.

Millions of Europeans have been without heat due to the dispute.
