Talks between Yushchenko, his former Orange Revolution allies, and the pro-Russian parliamentary majority, which nominated Yanukovych for prime minister, have so far yielded no agreement.

Yushchenko has until August 2 to submit Yanukovych's nomination to parliament. After that, he can dissolve the legislature and call early elections.
