Putin says new Ukraine government needed for full implementation of aid deal

MOSCOW, Jan 29 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that Russia would wait until Ukraine forms a new government before fully implementing a $15 billion bailout deal for Kiev, but repeated a promise to honour the agreement in full.

A day after Ukraine’s prime minister resigned, the move could give Russia leverage over Kiev as it struggles with an upheaval brought on by a decision to ditch landmark agreements with the European Union.
