It is noted that the residents of one of the villages in Zhovkovsky district contacted the police, who said that an unknown citizen had committed perverted acts against their daughters aged 6 and 7 years.
The investigation established that a 45-year-old resident of the same area was involved in the commission of a crime. He was informed of a suspicion of committing a crime under Part 2 of Art. 156 (corruption of minors) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
The sanction of the article provides for imprisonment of up to eight years. Soon, the court will choose a measure of restraint for the suspect; pre-trial investigation continues.
As we reported before, the Presidential Ombudsman for Children's Rights, Mykola Kuleba opposed commercial surrogacy in Ukraine.
“Commercialization and permission to receive such a service in Ukraine facilitates the uncontrolled sale of Ukrainian children abroad. The situation with the babies in the hotel, which became widely known, once again shows the disempowerment of children born to surrogate mothers. The birth of a child far from the mother is unnatural. Thus, Ukraine is simply becoming an international online store with babies. And we don’t know the actual number of such children that Ukraine “supplies” in this way,” Kuleba said.
