Poroshenko dissolves parliament and points to October 26 for early parliamentary elections.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has dissolved the parliament and announced snap parliamentary elections on October 26.
The decision on Monday comes a month after the fall of a coalition in the parliament on July 24.
Poroshenko said on television that most of the current deputies support pro-Russian separatists, maintaining that the 2012 elections were not democratic and not suitable for European standards.
The October 26 elections will be transparent and fair for all parties, he said.
