The member of the Board Pavlo Vlasov participated in preparation of the Alternative Report from the coalition of non-governmental organizations on the state of realization of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in Ukraine


During the research numerous gaps in Ukrainian legislation were revealed concerning observance of the rights of the child. This firstly relates to those articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine that has to protect children from violent offences, including children’s exposure to domestic violence, actual impunity of adults for application of physical punishment. The articles of the Family Code of Ukraine which regulate adoption procedures as to secrecy of the adoption actually deprive of the child’s right to identity. Ukrainian legislation makes no provision for protection of the child from harmful information. Pavlo Vlasov delivered relevant report at the Forum for NGOs working for children on the theme “Child’s Rights: 20 years of action” which was held in Kiev 19 Feb 2009.
