WARSAW, February 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk has confirmed that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich expressed his readiness to hold early elections this year.

Tusk said that foreign ministers of Poland, Germany and France, who are currently in Kiev with a diplomatic mission, have been working on an agreement that would help Ukraine stop escalation of violence. The agreement is also being discussed with the opposition leaders.
“President Yanukovich has agreed that early elections will take place this year. We are talking about both presidential and parliamentary elections,” Tusk said.
