This week, the last of the 234 protesters were released from jail as part of an amnesty. The amnesty law also calls for the opposition to vacate seized government buildings in the capital and elsewhere in Ukraine.

Oleh Tyahnybok, head of the nationalist Svoboda party, said today that the opposition is ready to vacate the Kiev City Hall, used by protesters as a dormitory, if criminal cases against demonstrators are dropped.

The protests erupted in November after Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych froze ties with the West and turned to Russia.
