Kiev: Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych on Thursday accused the opposition of inflaming tensions in the crisis but also admitted for the first time that the authorities had made mistakes.
"The opposition is continuing to inflame the situation," he said in an address to the nation after the opposition refused to back an amnesty bill.

"From my side, I will show more understanding to the demands and ambitions of people, taking into account the mistakes that authorities always make... I think that we can together return the life of Ukraine and its people to peace."
