Parliament adopts amnesty law

The Verkhovna Rada passed a bill on measures to eliminate the negative aftermath and prevent persecution and punishment of persons involved in developments during peaceful protest rallies, which was prepared by Regions Party faction member Yuriy Miroshnychenko.
The bill was supported by 232 deputies out of the 416 MPs registered in the session hall during the extraordinary session on Wednesday evening.
Parliament’s speaker Volodymyr Rybak closed the meeting shortly after the voting ended.
Lawmakers will gather for a scheduled session on February 4, 2014.
The passed bill foresees amnesty only in case protesters vacate all the occupied administrative buildings.
