As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 21, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree on early termination of powers of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the appointment of early elections for July 21.

On May 24, MPs from the Popular Front faction filed a motion with the Constitutional Court, requesting that the judges declare the decree on Parliament dissolution unconstitutional.

Today, on June 11, the Grand Chamber of the Constitutional Court began the relevant hearings.

Volodymyr Zelensky spoke at the hearing today, expressing hope that the Constitutional Court will make a decision for which no one will be "embarrassed."
