Ukraine's parliament considers amnesty for those arrested during protests
Ukraine's parliament is considering an amnesty for those arrested during weeks of protests in the crisis-torn country, but possibly with conditions attached that would be unacceptable to the opposition.
Two amnesty proposals are up for a parliamentary vote, one of which says amnesty would be granted only if demonstrators leave the streets and vacate buildings that they occupy.
Over the course of two months, anti-government protesters have established a large tent camp in the main square of Kiev and seized three buildings that they use as operations centres and sleeping quarters. They have also erected large barricades of ice, wood and other material.
