The Our Ukraine Party has said that Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych should be impeached for violating the Ukrainian Constitution. "Any president who violates the norms of the Ukrainian Constitution (Article 17) regarding a ban on the deployment of foreign military bases in Ukraine should be dismissed through impeachment," the party said in a statement published on Wednesday.

The document says that "there can be only one way out of the current political situation – fresh parliamentary elections."
