A bill passed by Ukraine's parliament to amnesty arrested activists gives protesters a 15-day deadline to leave occupied streets and administrative buildings otherwise it will not be implemented, according to the text published Thursday.The passing of the amnesty bill was a crucial moment in Ukraine's crisis and is expected to form the basis of negotiations and disputes between the authorities and the opposition in the days to come. The votes of the majority ruling Regions Party were enough to push the legislation through the Verkhovna Rada but the opposition deputies refused to cast their votes.Ukrainian media reports said that at least 40 Regions Party MPs had been willing to side with the opposition and prevent the bill from being adopted in its final version.
