KIEV, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. Amnesty law passed by Ukraine’s parliament on Wednesday does not require protesters to leave all the buildings they have captured, a leading official announced in the state capital.
Presidential envoy in the Verkhovna Rada assembly Yuri Miroshnichenko, one of the law's authors, told reporters that demonstrators were required to vacate the accommodations housing regional authorities and Kiev city departments.
Independence Square, the House of Trade Unions situated on the square, Oktyabrsky concert hall and a section of Kreshchatik Street where protesters' tents were placed did not fall under the terms of the amnesty, said the ruling Party of Regions deputy.
These exceptions were made so that “people will have some places to warm up in the frost,” he said as on Thursday morning, the air temperature fell to minus 23 degrees Celsius in the capital.
Explanatory notes to the law say that it “permits relieving from criminal responsibility and punishment those people who participated in massive protest actions starting from December 27, 2013."
"It permits resolution of domestic conflicts and ensures free activity of state authorities, local self-government bodies and to unblock their daily activity,” the text says.
