Verkhovna Rada Speaker Dmytro Razumkov believes that Ukrainian society is not ready to legalize short-barreled weapons, prostitution, and soft drugs. He spoke about it in an interview with the Ukranews outlet.
"I do not support this idea. I have never used it, and if we talk about the medical purpose - we often have bad ideas under a beautiful sign. Therefore, I do not endorse it," Razumkov said on the possible legalization of soft drugs.
As for prostitution, the speaker said that it was also not "for Ukrainian realities."
"I do not think that mentally, religiously, and historically Ukrainian society will be ready to legalize this sphere of services," the speaker added.
As we reported earlier, on August 13, the law on the legalization of the gambling business came into force in Ukraine.
The bill covers the sphere of activity of casino and online casino, holding of bookmaker activity (including online), issuance and holding of lottery and issues of the poker game on the internet.
The bill amends the law of Ukraine "On advertising, implementing the restrictions for ads of gambling games." Particularly, the outdoor advertising, excepting signs, is banned as well as the restriction for all other types of ads is banned.
