On Thursday, January 30, deputies of the Ukrainian Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, will consider the amnesty bill. According to deputy head of the parliamentary committee on law and justice Dmitry Shpenov (Party of Regions), deputies want to grant amnesty to all participants of the protests, except for certain categories of individuals, who committed heinous crimes.
The amnesty will not touch upon murderers, kidnappers, as well as those who obstructed the work of the press.
A condition for amnesty would be complete liberation of all administrative buildings. Protesters will also have to unblock all roads, remove all barricades, to dissolve so-called "guards" and fully surrender their weapons.
