#AceNewsServices says `Ukrainian Amnesty Law Comes into Force Today’
The law granting amnesty to the participants of the mass protests in Ukraine came into force Sunday. The government and the opposition have agreed that the Ukrainian parliament, the Verkhovnaya Rada, would announce an amnesty if administration buildings and roads were unblocked by the rioters. The protesters have 15 days to meet the demands.
The amnesty does not affect those who committed major offences such as murder or kidnaping during the riots that have gripped the country for weeks.
