I have decided to grant a one-time amnesty to the participants of the January events. Of course, the amnesty will not affect the main figures involved in the organization of the riots, as well as those accused of treason and attempted hostile takeover of power. Individuals that committed terrorist and extremist crimes, repeat offenders, as well as those who used torture, would be excluded from the amnesty.
