Ukrainian MPs have registered the draft law No. 3006 "On submitting changes to Article 40 of the Law of Ukraine "On the vehicles" (about the ban of acoustic violence). This is mentioned on the Parliament's website. 

One of the bill's authors Volodymyr Vyatrovych thanked NGOs that initiated the discussion and added that the document was supposed to protect the rights of people who don't want to listen to music or watch movies while on public transport.

"Passing this law, the Parliament will implement (...) the rules that act in the entire civilized world. Passengers will be able to travel in silence, instead of quarreling with the driver for the right not to listen to the modern Russian rogue songs or some TV show. The broadcast of music or films on passenger routes will be allowed only via personal headsets", Vyatrovych posted on Facebook.

The MP expressed hope that the Ukrainian Parliament would not drag time passing the law.

The bill was registered on February 4.

Recently, Ukrainian volunteers got off the bus after the driver had refused to turn off the TV, as it broadcasted a Russian TV show. The public response was considerable, as many people were outraged.
