Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych believes the work of the Ukrainian parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, should be stabilized, or otherwise it should be dissolved and early parliamentary elections called.

"I believe we should do all we can so that the parliament continues to work, ends this session and certainly starts a new session in September this year. This is the primary goal," the presidential press service quoted Yanukovych as saying at a meeting with the leadership of the parliament and the leaders of parliamentary factions on July 4.

The president noted, however, that, if the parliament's work is not stabilized, "we will have to switch to the procedure of early parliamentary elections."
