President Volodymyr Zelensky wrapped up a law that mandated forced chemical castration for pedophiles.
On September 4, the document was returned with Zelensky’s proposals. At the same time, the text of the president’s proposals was not published.
According to the bill, rape of a minor or juvenile should be punishable by imprisonment of 7 to 15 years (up to 7-12 years), and profane acts against a person under 16 years of age – 5 years in prison (before being restricted or imprisoned up to 5 years).
The bill introduced punishment for pedophiles in the form of forced chemical castration. They were also required to establish a public register of persons convicted of rape or sexual abuse of minors and to establish life-long administrative supervision of such persons after their release.
