KIEV, February 04, (ITAR-TASS). Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich is not planning to settle the current situation in Ukraine by force, Yuri Miroshnichenko, a Party of Regions deputy who represents the Ukrainian president in parliament, told in a live interview with a local television channel.
“President Yanukovich is considering an option of resolving the situation by force. The state of emergency will not be imposed. Early parliamentary and presidential elections will be announced in Ukraine if we fail to find a compromise and reach an agreement,” Miroshnichenko explained.
The opposition and the authorities will try to agree on key issues at the fourth session of the Ukrainian parliament that opens on Tuesday. They include constitutional reform and the formation of a new government. Opposition deputies also suggest holding a repeat vote on the amnesty law.
