An interval till 11.00 a.m. was announced in the Verkhovna Rada for consultations of leaders of parliamentary factions.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, VR Speaker Arseniy Yatsenyuk informed that the Decree of President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko on dissolving the parliament was published in official editions on Friday.

Inviting factions leaders to the meeting, he noted that it was necessary to decide: “Either we take part in election, or not, or we finally make decision concerning the electoral campaign, because it seems the electoral campaign will hardly be stopped”.

A. Yatsenyuk invited the leaders of the factions to his cabinet, noting that if the issue concerning the work of parliament is not solved till 11.00 am, he will have to close the today`s session.

Parliament members from the BYUT faction keep up blocking the rostrum, presidium and governmental box of parliament.

As i is known, inviting factions leaders to consultations, A.Yatseniuk used to say that he invites them to have a cup of tea in his cabinet. Asked by MPs whether he invites them to tea again, the Speaker said: "I`ve run out of tea, only water, and that boiled one".
