The President signed the law “On Preventing and Countering Anti-Semitism in Ukraine”.
“The document aims to create a legislative mechanism to counter anti-Semitism in Ukraine and prevent its manifestations to protect human rights, prevent cases of xenophobia, racism and discrimination” – the Office of the President of Ukraine said.
The document, in particular, defines the term “anti-Semitism” and indicates a list of its manifestations. The law also contains a provision on the prohibition of anti-Semitism and its manifestations.
Violation of the requirements of this law provides for civil, administrative and criminal liability. This refers to the right to compensation for material and moral harm caused to a person as a result of anti-Semitism and its manifestations.
To remind, the first stumbling stone was laid in Kyiv – a memorial sign dedicated to the victims of the Nazis.
