"There is no decree on the dissolution of the Verkhovna Rada yet. He [Zelensky] has not yet held consultations with the factions. He will do this today. He is inviting now. He must do this. This is the rule of the Constitution. Let's see how it will be justified. He will not violate the Constitution. As far as I understand, the decree will be [signed] in the evening," the RBC Ukraine media outlet quoted Karpuntsov as saying.

As UNIAN reported earlier, newly elected President Volodymyr Zelensky announced the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament, would be disbanded.
