KIEV, Ukraine, Feb. 14 (UPI) -- The last 11 of 234 Ukrainian protesters arrested in January were released Friday under an amnesty measure, the National Resistance Headquarters said.

The release came a day after Kiev prosecutor Mykola Beskyshky announced a list of streets and buildings protesters must vacate by Monday.

National Resistance Headquarters officials said Beskyshky's order was a provocation.

Ukraine has been rocked by anti-government protests since President Viktor Yanukovych refused to sign trade and association agreements to bring the former Soviet republic closer to the European Union.
