New Laws on the Functioning and Protection of Ukraine

On April 1, the parliament of Ukraine passed a number of laws aimed at optimizing the work of business, improving the living conditions of civilians and the requirements of service of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and provisions for statehood

The first group of laws concerns civilians and the military. The relevant group of parliamentary decisions is aimed at protecting the people and the military, compensating for losses, social security, caring for the health of our defenders, and humanitarian guarantees.

  • About additional staffing and social security of defense (№7217);

The second group of laws and amendments to active laws is aimed at supporting business, strengthening the economy, restoring the market, and adapting taxes to the challenges of martial law.

  • About one hundred percent guarantee of deposits in all banks during the war (№5542-1);

The law On the Protection of Ukraine in the Information Space, the Prevention of the Use of Russian Neo-Nazi Symbols, and the Recognition of Russia as a Terrorist State (№7214) deserves special attention. We are talking, first of all, about the orange and black military ribbons, as well as the "modern swastika" symbols "V" and "Z". Recall that in recent days, Germany and Latvia have banned extremist symbols in their countries.
