Prime Minister of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych is convinced that early parliamentary and presidential elections will destabilize the social and economic situation in the country.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, Victor Yanukovych said this to journalists in Odessa today.
“The response of the coalition [to the relevant draft law of Party of Regions faction lawmaker Vassyl Kysseliov - UNIAN] has not been discussed as yet. But, in our opinion, everything that destabilizes and worsens the situation – must not be done, and this is our principal position”, Victor Yanukovych said.
The Prime Minister emphasized the government is interested in the stable situation in the country. “At present we do not have any, to put it mildly, problems. The country’s economics is growing, in January the growth made 9.3%, and we got an opportunity to increase the level of social standards, we introduce amendments into the budget, and will boost wages and pensions”, he explained.
At the same time, Victor Yanukovych stressed that it is the right of lawmakers to propose any draft laws.
