The bill #6151 "Regarding amendments to some Ukrainian legislative acts on the responsibility for crimes, committed against sexual autonomy and privacy of youngest children" was submitted for consideration to Verkhovna Rada. Anton Yatsenko, the member of Revival Party, was the initiator of the draft law.
The law offers to use coercive chemical castration in prisons towards persons after age 18, who were accused of sexual offense against sexual autonomy of young children. It is stressed that such measure can be used only by the decision of the court and under the conclusion of forensic medical examination that the person suffers pedophilia.
Explanatory note mentions the successful experience of many countries starting from USA to Poland, Russia and Kazakhstan.
The message reads that such governmental program in the UK lowered relapses of sexual abuse from 40% to 5%, as the drugs given to pedophiles suppress libido and sexual activity.
Beyond that, the amount of funds for such drugs was also provided. One preparation for medical castration of one pedophile would cost about 5$ a day (that is about 150$ per month). It is noted that such price is fair, because this is about physical and mental health of children (potential victims).
