This message appeared on the President's Twitter account, Censor.NET reports.
The tweet reads: "Dear compatriots! I decided to dissolve the Verkhovna Rada of the seventh convocation."
In his turn press secretary of the Head of State Sviatoslav Tseholko noted: "The President terminated the powers of the Verkhovna Rada, because it is the only correct and responsible decision. Most of these lawmakers passed dictatorial laws that took the lives of the Heaven's Hundreds. They have to answer for it. The "Fifth column" (people with anti-Ukrainian views) consists of dozens of the so-called people's deputies. But they clearly do not represent the interests of the people who elected them. The President urged the democratic political forces to run as a single pro-Ukrainian, pro-European team."
