KIEV, February 02, (ITAR-TASS). Ukraine’s law on amnesty has come into force on Sunday. If the opposition follows the obligations under it within 15 days, the authorities will release all the detained protesters.
The law, designed in particular to “prevent prosecution and punishment of people in connection with events that took place during peaceful rallies,” envisions a pardon for all people who took part in riots during mass anti-government demonstrations in Ukraine except for those who committed grave crimes.
It introduces a mechanism to release participants of riots from criminal prosecution and ensure unhindered operation of state and local power bodies.
The document says protesters should vacate state and local power institutions they seized in Kiev and other regions of the country within 15 days, unblock Grushevskogo Street in downtown Kiev and other streets and squares across the country except those where peaceful protest rallies are being held.
