President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych hopes for a mutual understanding among the political forces in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine during the 3rd session.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this at opening ceremony of the session of the parliament today.

V. Yanukovych noted that “unfortunately, the previous session of the VRU was a time of missed opportunities and consequently, we lose a pace of the reforms, which we started in 2010-2012 years”.

At the same time the President expressed a confidence that the Ukrainian parliament will be able to unite efforts “around the problems, which the fate of Ukraine depends on”.
