Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine met with U.S. Senator Robert Portman who came to Kyiv with a visit. The press office of the Ukrainian leader said that on late May 30.
The sides discussed the political situation in Ukraine - specifically, the early election of the Parliament. Zelensky admitted that the dissolution of the Parliament meets the requirements of the society; thanks to the snap election in July, Ukraine would be able to shape the new government in September.
'If this Parliament that fails to work properly remained, we would have only shaped the Cabinet in December. We can't wait. We've got two wars, the one with Russia and the one against corruption inside the country; that is a threat, first of all, for the economy of Ukraine', the President said.
