KIEV, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich is prepared to form a new country’s government, deputy of Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, from the Party of Regions faction and presidential envoy in parliament Yuri Miroshnichenko told reporters on Tuesday.

“The president is prepared to form a new Cabinet,” he said, noting that Yanukovich is not willing to continue the conflict. Miroshnichenko noted that the president continues consultations with the leaders of parliamentary factions over formation of a new government.

On January 28, Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolay Azarov tendered resignation and Yanukovich accepted his resignation on the same day.

Early presidential and parliamentary elections are not on agenda, Miroshnichenko told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. “This is not on agenda today,” the deputy noted. “Today the Verkhovna Rada opened a plenary meeting and continued consultations over which laws should be debated and in which sequence they should be considered,” he added.

On Monday, Miroshnichenko said live on ICTV channel that on January 29 President Viktor Yanukovich told members of his faction that he “is prepared to announce early parliamentary and presidential elections, if politicians cannot come to terms”.
