Ukraine's Verkhovna Rada health committee is recommending adoption of amendments to the law on measures to prevent and reduce the use of tobaccos and their harmful influence on people's health, UKRINFORM reports.

This document provides for complete prohibition of smoking on public transport, including in trains and taxis.

Beside this, now not only individuals, but also legal entities will shoulder responsibility for smoking in public places.

The owners or lessors of premises must fully prohibit smoking in their buildings, or arrange special places for smokers.

Smoking was also forbidden in child, educational, sports and medical establishments, where previously it was a competence of local administrations only.

Verkhovna Rada passed this bill in first reading on March 19, 2009.
