Protesters in Ukraine have said no to a government amnesty aimed at putting a stop to violence that's spread across the country.
Protesters in Ukraine have rejected the terms of an amnesty law despite warnings the country is on the "brink of civil war".
Parliament had backed an amnesty for detainees if protesters vacated the government buildings they had occupied and unblocked streets and squares. The protests began in November after the country's President reversed a decision to sign an EU trade deal.
Thamarai Bandian who's the Anglican church warden at Christ Church in Kiev told Premier's News Hour the Church hasn't been taking sides in the dispute:
A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.Set up a monthly gift
