• Ukraine grants amnesty to protesters


    KIEV: Ukraine on Monday granted amnesty to opposition protesters after they agreed to end their occupation of Kiev city hall and other public buildings and partially dismantle barricades. The law dropping charges against protesters came into force a day after they vacated municipal buildings they had occupied in anger at President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to reject a European Union trade deal in favor of closer ties with Russia.
