On Tuesday, June 11, several dozens of people gathered outside the Constitutional Court in Kyiv, which will begin to consider the appeal of 62 deputies asking to verify the legality of President Vladimir Zelensky's decree in the dissolution of parliament. The Court will also consider the legality of holding early elections, scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 21. Heightened security measures are likely around the Constitutional Court in the coming hours.
Related protests are possible in the coming days.
President Vladimir Zelenskiy announced he will disband parliament during his inauguration speech on Monday, May 20, in an attempt to increase support for his party. Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada (parliament) is currently dominated by supporters of former President Petro Poroshenko. Following his announcement to disband parliament, Zelenskiy called for parliamentary elections to be held on July 21.
Individuals in Kyiv are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
