In a bid to deter men from carrying out acts of rape and paedophilia, Ukraine is to begin chemically castrating those who are convicted.
Ukraine reported more than 300 child rapes in 2017, so a decision was taken to chemically lower the libido of those convicted who are between the ages of 18 and 65.
It is expected that thousands of men now serving time for those acts will face an injection needle that is now permitted after the legislation was approved by Ukrainian lawmakers.
Also, under the new laws, Ukraine is to set up a public register for V, and these criminals will be monitored for life by the police after their release from prison.
Chemical castration does not involve surgery. It consists of injected drugs that effectively blunt the sex drive for a period of time.
Along with forced chemical castration, the new law also envisions up to 15 years in prison for raping minors and up to five years in prison for lurid acts involving minors.
Forced chemical castration of pedophiles is legal in many countries, including Britain, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Kazakhstan, Norway, Sweden, and the United States.
In Russia, a 2012 law allows chemical castration of convicts if they consent to have it.
