MOSCOW, January 28. /ITAR-TASS World Service/. The fate of the many days-long opposition between Ukraine’s authorities and protesters may be decided this Tuesday, as the Supreme Rada will have an extraordinary meeting in Ukraine's capital.
On Saturday, President Viktor Yanukovich proposed opposition Batkivshchyna's leader Arseny Yatsenyuk to become prime-minister and Vitaly Klichko vice-premier for humanitarian affairs. If they accept the offer, Yanukovich has promised to dismiss the current government.
Yatsenyuk already has refused to take the post of prime-minister.
The head of the Institute of Ukrainian Politics, Konstantin Bondarenko, believes Yatsenyuk, Klichko and Tyagnibok inspired by the news about the seizure of administrative buildings in regions, are just "posing", the Novye Izvestia writes.
The situation is difficult. The opposition leaders are expected as response concessions to pull out people from the streets, stop the war with police and free the seized administrations, Bondarenko said.
Aside from the government posts, the president promised the opposition to consider returning to the 2004 Constitution. In the case, presidential elections must be held already this year, but not in 2015, and the presidential post becomes more nominal.
The sides’ debates are caused by the laws adopted in January 16, which restrict citizens' democratic rights and freedoms.
The laws of January 16 will be revoked. The decision was taken as a result of talks between President Yanukovich and opposition leaders on Monday. The meeting lasted more than four hours, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta writes, Justice Minister Yelena Lukash told the newspaper that the sides agreed to adopt a law on amnesty.
The Nezavisimaya Gazeta notes if the Supreme Rada meeting is disrupted, a state of emergency may be declared in Ukraine. Under Ukraine’s law, if it is declared, activities of political parties and public organizations may be banned and elections are not held.
