The Ukrainian parliament is due to debate a possible amnesty for scores of protesters arrested in anti-government demonstrations.
President Viktor Yanukovych said the amnesty would be conditional on protesters leaving official buildings and taking down barricades.
Protests have snowballed into a wider national movement, spreading into the heartland in the mostly Russian-speaking east.
