KIEV, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. A former prosecutor for the Kiev region, unaffiliated legislator Sergei Mishchenko, told Itar-Tass the amnesty bill would be a difficult one to pass, but the Ukrainian parliament Verkhovna Rada would have to continue its special session in case it did not manage to agree on the issue on Wednesday.
“The problem is how to differentiate the ones to be pardoned: we should draw a line between those who killed police and the other protesters. The former cannot be pardoned. What is more, those who used extreme violence against the protesters, the media in particular, should also bear responsibility”, he said.
The legislator said the special session should be continued if a compromise on amnesty is not found today. “Otherwise, the protests may flare up again”, he concluded.
