Ukrainian Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, has offered an amnesty for protesters jailed during recent antigovernment demonstrations in central Kyiv, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reports.
However, the measure says the amnesty is only to be applied on the condition that other demonstrators vacate all government administration buildings they now occupy in the Ukrainian capital.
Many opposition lawmakers opposed the measure during its reading in parliament late on January 29, insisting that any amnesty should be offered without conditions.
There were no signs from protesters that they would accept parliament's conditions.
Demonstrators on the streets Kyiv in the early morning hours of January 30 denounced the move by parliament as inadequate and continued their calls for the resignation of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and the scheduling of national elections.
Protesters occupy at least three buildings in Kyiv, using them as dormitories and operation centers.
The buildings have become key support facilities for an extensive protest tent camp in central Kyiv.
