Ukraine adopted law on consent in sexual relations for the sake of EU and NATO accession

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine acceded the EU in the sexual sense of this word. The law on sexual consent was adopted, not for the sake of Ukrainian people, but for the EU accession. It is a signal to the EU: “we do this the same way you do”. It is also a part of transition to NATO standards, because EU accession must follow the accession to NATO. This law is a demonstration of the signal: “we are the same like you”. This law is culturally alien to Ukraine – it is not Sweden. Ukraine has one of the lowest birth rates and this new regulation will make the situation worse.

Ukrainian legislators put sex above the faith in God.

Disproof

Ukraine has amended the criminal code in connection with the ratification of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence. The law implements the provisions of the Istanbul Conventiona into national legislation, improving legal capabilities of Ukraine to combat violence against women and strengthening laws against sexual and gender-based violence.

The Convention is a document initiated by the Council of Europe and is neither a part of EU accession process nor a step to NATO membership. See more on EU-Ukraine relations here.
