Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine registered a bill that should amend the law “On measures to prevent and reduce the use of tobacco products and their harmful influence on population health” and provides a full ban on the sale and import of flavored tobacco products on the territory of Ukraine.
In addition, it is proposed to prohibit cigarette with flavors in any of their components. We are talking about capsules, filters, packaging and other technical modifications that make cigarette smoke even more intense.
The new bill also provides for penalties. So, for the retail sale of such products is subject to a fine from 5 to 10 thousand UAH for the purchase and implementation of the flavored cigarettes – from 10 to 50 thousand UAH and for the production of the relevant products and their introduction into circulation from 50 to 200 thousand UAH.
