The claim in the case of recognition of the assets as unfounded and their recovery shall be filed without legal charge.

Not only unfunded assets are considered as unfounded, but also funds received at their expense - all of them are subject to confiscation or special confiscation.

It is expected to enter into force on November 28.

As we reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed the bill № 1152-1, which provides increased criminal liability for falsification of medicines and their distribution, including through the Internet. The official website of the president informed about it.

The bill increases the term of imprisonment from 3-5 years to 5-8 years in case of proof of guilt in the manufacturing, purchasing, transporting, sending, storage for the purpose of sale or sale of knowingly falsified drugs.
