KIEV, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament voted on Thursday for a draft law on amnesty for participants in mass protests, which was supported by 339 deputies, well over the 226 votes necessary.
According to Pavel Petrenko, a deputy from the opposition Batkivshchina Party’s parliamentary faction, the draft law acquits those participating in the protest rallies against Ukraine’s U-turn on the association agreement with the EU starting from November 21 until the day when the law comes into effect.
Besides, the draft law rules to drop criminal proceedings against protesters, launched from November 21, and consider their participants as having no criminal records.
