Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych on Friday proposed an amnesty for protesters detained during pro-EU rallies, a key demand for the opposition, his office said.
"My point of view is that we have to turn this page, announce an amnesty," Yanukovych was quoted by his office as telling students. "People who were arrested now, they should be freed. Some of them have even been convicted -- they should be freed too," he said before going into talks with the opposition.
