The Verkhovna Rada established a framework to prevent and combat discrimination.

240 MPs voted in favor of the relevant bill.

The Parliament found that discrimination is decisions, actions or failures to act to limit or privilege with respect to a person or group of persons on the grounds of race, color, political, religious or other beliefs, sex, age, disability, ethnic or social origin, family and property status, place of residence, linguistic or other characteristics, if they make impossible recognition and implementation of equal rights and freedoms of man and citizen.
Direct discrimination, indirect, incite and oppression were defined as forms of discrimination.
Any form of discrimination against individuals or groups of individuals on their specific characteristics by state agencies, local governments, and businesses and individuals shall be prohibited.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights, the Cabinet of Ministers, other central and local authorities, NGOs, physical and legal entities shall prevent and combat discrimination.

Parliament established that a person, who believes that he is discriminated, has the right to file a complaint to the Ombudsman or the courts.

The bill also provides for the right of such a person to compensation for material and moral damage caused by discrimination.
