Viktor Yanukovych has signed a law amending certain legislative acts to improve administrative legal proceedings.

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has signed a law amending certain legislative acts to improve administrative legal proceedings. This document was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada on Nov. 17, 2011, and signed by the president on Jan. 11, 2012.

The law says that appeals by citizens involved in the process will not be considered if they do not specify their place of residence, are not signed, or contain disrespectful remarks addressed to the court.

According to the document, it is up to the court to decide on the procedure for the consideration of an appeal or its transfer to another court.

The law stipulates that administrative proceedings are conducted by a panel of judges.

It also lays down a procedure for the consideration of lawsuits filed by the State Tax Service.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
