Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych could call early elections if he cannot strike a deal with the opposition, a top lawmaker said on Tuesday ahead of a parliament session where protest leaders will press for concessions.Yuriy Miroshnychenko, Yanukovych's personal representative in parliament, said the president has spoken at a meeting with lawmakers last week of "two possible scenarios" to end a two-month crisis.On Monday Yanukovych blasted the mass protests against his rule as "extremism", as the European Union and United States discussed possible economic aid to help end the country's deep political crisis.Opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk has asked for a "Marshall Plan" -- a reference to US aid for Europe after World War II to prevent the spread of Communism.He said said the minimum required was the $15 billion (11 billion euros) that Russia has promised Ukraine in a bailout that is now on hold.
