Viktor Yanukovych is confident that regardless of the results of negotiating sides of the current political conflict, Ukraine will keep on the course of democratic changes. The Prime Minister of Ukraine stated in an interview for Interfax-Ukraine Agency in Moscow, according to Cabinet press office.

“Despite the result of negotiations, I am sure that the current political crisis will make Ukraine more democratic state the fundamental principles of which are law supremacy, freedom, adherence to human rights. Reforms of the judiciary system and law-enforcement bodies are unalterable as well,” the PM said.

Answering questions on probable, to his mind, reasons of the President for signing Decree on the Parliament’s dissolution, the Prime Minister noted “If President Viktor Yushchenko wanted to hold pre-term elections by illegal, coercive way (the result of which could be easily foreseen taking into consideration numerous sociological polls), then we can unambiguously say that he deliberately violated the Constitution, taking into account the methods of coercive pressure”.

“If the President reckoned that signing decree would make the coalition of national unity pay attention to their position on many issues of the interior and foreign policy, including redistribution of authorities between the branches of power then achieving this goal is possible only through a political dialogue,” Viktor Yanukovych stressed.

According to the Prime Minister, if we speak about the second choice then compromise search is quite possible. But at that the abolition of the Decree on Parliament’s dissolution is inevitable – in accordance with either the Constitutional Court’s ruling or milder decision – by the President himself.
