KIEV — A top opposition leader in Ukraine's two-month-long political crisis said Saturday that protests will continue despite the embattled president's offer to appoint him as prime minister.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk told a large crowd on Kiev's central square that while the opposition is generally ready to accept leadership of the government, President Viktor Yanukovych must still meet several key demands of the opposition and that talks will continue.

Yatsenyuk said a special session of parliament called for Tuesday could be decisive. Yanukovych has said that session could discuss a government reshuffle and changes to harsh new anti-protest laws that set off a wave of violent clashes between police and protesters over the past week.
