By amending Article 21 of the Law of Ukraine On Medicinal Products, the bill proposes to establish a ban on the supply (sale) of medicinal products to citizens under 14 years of age. In case of doubt about the age of the buyer, the release of medicines is subject to the presentation of a document certifying his age.
In addition, the parliament supported the draft law № 5123-1, which provides for administrative liability for non-compliance with the above-mentioned innovation.
Therefore, for the sale of drugs to minors and their delivery, they offer a fine of about $250 to $500 (UAH 6,800 to 13,600).
Repeated acts will be punished by a fine of $500 to $870 (UAH 13,600 to 23,800).
The penalty will be imposed on the person who directly carries out retail trade in medicines.
