KIEV, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Representatives of the Ukrainian authorities and the opposition have failed to agree on a final edition of the bill on amnesty for participants in mass rallies, so the Verkhovna Rada will continue its extraordinary session on Wednesday, leader of the Ukrainian opposition party Svoboda (Freedom) Oleg Tyagnibok told journalists on Tuesday.
“The leaders of the faction, who met in the office of the Verkhovna Rada speaker, have failed to reach an agreement on the final wording of the amnesty bill,” he said. “The authorities insist on tougher provisions, while we demand that the bill be passed without any preliminary conditions. Since no agreement has been reached on the final edition, it was decided to continue the work on the bill and put it for voting tomorrow.”
“The extraordinary session will be continued tomorrow because it is vital not to interrupt the process of bringing the country out of the crisis,” Tyagnibok said.
Ukraine’s first President Leonid Kravchuk said on Tuesday he was ready to act as a guarantor of agreements between the authorities and the opposition.
“Yes, I am ready to act as a guarantor of agreements,” he told Itar-Tass. “I am confident that the crisis can be settled but it will take coherent actions, not like it is now - one step forward, two steps backwards.”
To have the crisis settled it is necessary to stick to the agreements already reached, he stressed.
