«Now you raised the issue of early elections. They will bring these early elections, except that we will not have any reforms? In addition, we then will surely come the economic collapse? And, furthermore, that it will not change the system of state administration on better?» he said, answering questions.
Yatsenyuk stressed that today the country needs economic and political stability, «and the time for elections will come».
