government tries to prevent domestic violence
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine registered a draft law of
the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on preventing domestic violence. Thus, it
is proposed to replace “family violence” with “home violence” to oblige local
authorities, social services on family, children and young people, establishments
and institutions on education and health care to take measures on preventing domestic
violence, to improve the system of assistance to victims of home violence, to
apply public works as punishment of offenders.
