Le Figaro. Ukraine: President Poroshenko in a pending state

Having lost the majority in the Rada, President Poroshenko relies on early parliamentary elections in July or in late October of this year, says Pierre avril, correspondent, Le Figaro.

«Two years after the revolution on the Maidan the country is experiencing political crisis and suffers from corruption,» the article says.

On Monday the rebels of the Maidan celebrated two years since the expulsion of former President Viktor Yanukovych. On the same day, Petro Poroshenko hosted the foreign Ministers of France and Germany: on the agenda was the issue of the protracted conflict in the Donbass. Three days ago, speaker of the Verkhovna Rada announced the split of the Pro-Western government coalition. The Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and President Poroshenko has lost the most, notes the author.

They have less than 30 days to find a new partner, otherwise will be appointed early parliamentary elections. Loomed the specter of 2005, Averill writes: then the first independent Pro-Western government in Ukraine’s history was defeated. Discouraged, the Western sponsors have left the government of Kiev, Pro-Russian back into orbit. Now Poroshenko tries at all costs to avoid a repeat scenario. The Prime Minister, for his part, said: «We will not allow that country once again plunged into instability, lost of foreign aid and reform».

A week ago Arseniy Yatsenyuk has avoided resignation as a result of the maneuver, initiated by Poroshenko, and calculated that the Fronde calm down and himself be able to win. «If you hold elections today, Petro Poroshenko is sure they will lose their former allies or to the Opposition bloc. That is why he does everything for the dissolution of the Parliament to organize elections in July or at the end of October, and during this time to correct the situation», — said political analyst Vadim Karasev. Immediate dissolution would have plunged the country into instability and prevent the Navy to conduct a financial injection, he said.
