Some 244 of the 347 MPs registered at the parliament’s session on
Tuesday, Sept. 18, voted at first reading for the bill on amendments to the
Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine on the
toughening of punishments for the infringement of the honor, dignity and
business reputation of a person.

The author of the bill, a member of the Regions Party parliamentary
faction Vitaliy Zhuravsky, registered the document in the parliament in

the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code.

The document was revised in September and the notion “offence” was removed from it.
