President of Ukraine Voodymyr Zelensky said there are certain conditions under which he would disband the Parliament. He said so at a press conference timed to his first anniversary in the office. The event took place in Kyiv on May 20.

Zelensky said that as long as Servant of the People (pro-presidential political party, - 112 International) votes for all laws that are pivotal for the country he woud support their decisions.

"Not just Servant of the People... I'll supoport the composition of the party - the single-party majority, I should say - because they do their job. As soon as they stop voting, or say they don't want to, or promote the interests of any commercial influence group in Ukraine's political environment - I will instantly disband the Parliament, not even considering any options", Zelensky said.
