Former US Ambassador to Ukraine Steven Pifer considers that early parliamentary elections will give political forces possibility to reach consensus and go ahead.

“Maybe these elections will not solve all problems but they give opportunity for agreement and further actions,” he said yesterday during television space bridge “Kyiv -Moscow-Washington”: “Which Ukraine do the USA and Russia need?”

He also said that the Essential law of Ukraine is not perfect. “It is necessary to make changes in order to avoid in future such political crisis Ukraine faced in spring of the current year,” he said.

He also noted that Washington would like to see Ukraine integrated in European and Euro-Atlantic structures. At the same time he said that Ukraine must decide itself the character of relations, in particular with NATO.

Pifer noted that the USA does not participate in Ukraine’s crisis solution. He expressed hope that after early parliamentary elections, parliamentary coalition will be formed soon.
