KIEV, July 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The factions of Svoboda and UDAR parties in the Ukrainian parliament Verkhovna Rada announced their departure from the ruling coalition on Thursday, which starts the process of the parliament dissolution.
UDAR faction leader Vitaly Kovalchuk was the first to announce the decision, followed by a statement from Svoboda leader Oleh Tyahnibok. "This started the process of the Verkhovna Rada dissolution and early election announcement," Kovalchuk said.
A proxy of non-affiliated group of deputies Serhiy Mishchenko confirmed the information, saying this gave the Ukrainian president a chance to dissolve the Rada within 30 days.
Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko earlier said early election could be scheduled for late October.
