KIEV, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament's adoption of the amnesty law has not led to any change in protesters' actions in central Kiev. They intend to continue outdoor actions despite stronger frost in the capital. Opposition leaders also call for it, reluctant to agree on compromise with authorities to settle the acute political crisis in the country.
Late on Wednesday, the parliament supported the draft law on amnesty prepared by the president's permanent representative to the Supreme Rada, a deputy from the Party of Regions, Yury Miroshnichenko. The document was approved by a vote of 232, with required 226.
The law adopted without debates is expected to grant amnesty to all who have participated in protest actions during the period since November 21, 2013, except those who have committed serious crimes. It comes into force the next day after the publication.
Protesters must obey law requirements - to leave seized administrative buildings, not to prevent work of administrations and unblock occupied streets and squares, but those where peaceful demonstrations are held. Fifteen days are given to fulfill the conditions, otherwise the law is not in force any longer.
