Klitschko calls on MPs to pass resolution on president's impeachment

KYIV, February 22 /Ukrinform/. UDAR Party leader Vitali Klitschko has called on MPs to meet the demand of the Maidan and adopt a resolution on the president's impeachment. He said this from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada on Saturday, a Ukrinform correspondent reported. "The opposition initiates the adoption of a Verkhovna Rada resolution demanding that Viktor Yanukovych step down [as president], which will be a legitimate reason for setting the date for early presidential elections," Klitschko said.

He said that the elections should be held, in accordance with the Constitution, no later than May 25, 2014.
Klitschko called on all Ukrainian citizens to maintain peace and in no way yield to provocations to inappropriate actions. "The parliament will do its best to return the situation in the country to normal," he said.
