 "Even theoretical preconditions for early elections not there," - Speaker Parubii

Verkhovna Rada Chairman Andrii Parubii believes there are no reasons for holding early parliamentary elections.

He announced it during a meeting with Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius on Monday in Vilnius, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"We have a parliamentary majority, the government is working alright, there are no even theoretical preconditions for declaring early elections. Most factions do not support such an idea," Parubii said.

He stated that "Putin's master plan is about destabilizing the situation in Ukraine and changing the government."

"The key destabilization actions were to be implemented on the eve of Maidan's anniversary," Parubii added.

According to him, the recent "paid participation in rallies discredited both the event and the idea of a free society."

"The Ukrainian society is under pressure due to large number of reforms. This is not only about positive things like the new police but also higher prices for utilities. However, we have introduced a system of subsidies to help those who can not pay," the speaker stressed.

"An attempt to mobilize people for a third Maidan is a populists' desire to use the social discontent as well as the external action to destabilize Ukraine from within.

"The parliament is working like it haven't worked for many years before," Parubii summed up.
