Watch Mob Throw Ukrainian Lawmaker in the Garbage

Pro-Russian Vitaly Zhuravsky belonged to ousted president's party.

As police looked on, the protestors flipped pro-Russian Vitaly Zhuravsky into the trash bin, then held him down and threw a car tire and water onto him before he was finally able to escape.

Fighters who have not committed war crimes were also granted amnesty. The move was a concession to Russia, but also intended to reinforce a fragile ceasefire.

The move backfired, however, leading to street protests that ultimately forced Yanukovich to flee the country in February.
