Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has proposed granting an amnesty to people who were detained during demonstrations in Kyiv, the press service of the Head of State reports.

"My view is that we need to turn over this leaf and declare an amnesty. I'll propose at a roundtable that an amnesty be granted and that all of these questions be resolved. People who have currently been arrested should be released. Some of them who have already been convicted also need to be released, and this conflict should be settled," the President noted, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

Yanukovych also proposed students to support such an initiative."It's a very good and fundamental step on the part of the Ukrainian authorities," a student of the Drahomanov National Pedagogical University said.
