21:45, 3 October 2019
Verkhovna Rada listened to the president’s proposal and abandoned the idea of ​​creating an open registry of pedophiles and introducing mandatory chemical castration. The decision to reject Bill No. 0977 was adopted by 238 MPs' votes.

An online broadcast of the plenary session was conducted by the official Rada channel.

We recall that the Verkhovna Rada of the previous convocation adopted this law as a whole in July 2019. The former acting Minister of Health Ulyana Suprun criticized the legislative act, pointing out that chemical castration as a treatment method should be used in combination with other procedures only for people with a mental illness of pedophilia.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky vetoed the bill in early September 2019.

In the summer of 2019, the parliament supported draft law No. 6607 as a basis. It was developed after petition No. 6607 for tightening the sentence for sexual abuse of children gained the right number of votes to consider it.

This document provides for voluntary chemical castration and the creation of a unified register of criminals convicted of crimes against sexual freedom and sexual untouchability of minors, access to which will be available to heads of kindergartens, schools, out-of-school educational institutions, children's medical institutions or other organizations that provide services to minors.
