“The Ukrainian president has been granted sick leave due to an acute respiratory illness combined with a high fever,” the presidential press service quoted him as saying on Thursday.

As reported, Yanukovych on Wednesday evening arrived in parliament for a meeting of the Party of Regions faction. The situation in parliament was quite tense. From 1100 lawmakers attempted to agree on a consolidated bill on amnesty for participants in mass rallies, but they failed to do so. As a result, MPs from the Party of Regions, the Communist Party and independent deputies voted for a bill authored by the president’s representative in parliament, Party of Regions MP Yuriy Miroshnychenko.
