Ukrainian president offers concessions after violent streets clashes: reports

KYIV, Ukraine - News agencies say Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych has promised a government reshuffle, an amnesty to detained activists and other concessions.

The move comes after protests against his rule engulfed Ukraine.

Interfax and other news agencies report Yanukovych met with religious leaders today and vowed that a special parliament meeting next Tuesday will push through changes to the cabinet.

They say he also promised the meeting will grant amnesty to dozens of jailed activists and change harsh-anti-protest legislation.

At least two protesters were killed this week in clashes with police, and protesters seized government offices in scores of cities in the pro-Western part of Ukraine.

The two-month-long crisis turned violent after the passage of anti-dissent legislation.
