Ukraine’s parliament adopts a policy bringing penalties for sales of medicines to under 14s.

The underage sales policy update was supported by votes of  315 MPs.

First-time offence will be penalized by a fine in 6,800-13,600 hryvnas range while repeat offence will almost double the fine (13,600-23,800 hryvnas).

Earlier this year,  Ukrainian lawmakers outlawed  sales of medication to under 14s  ‘in response to growing concern over misuse and abuse of medicine impacting Ukrainian teens’.
