Ukraine's parliament voted Wednesday to grant amnesty to anti-government protesters who have been leading violent demonstrations across the country for nearly two weeks. But not all the protesters are buying the deal. According to RT's Peter Oliver, some of the more extreme members of the nationalist organizations say that amnesty won't get them to put down their weapons - the key concession the government is asking for. Correspondent Alexey Yaroshevsky brings details of how bloody demonstrations involving nationalist groups in the past, like 1943's Volhynian Massacre, are resurfacing in today's protests.
