President Viktor Yanukovych offers the Verkhovna Rada to establish a procedure for the adoption of children, who are citizens of Ukraine, by foreigners.

The corresponding bill was registered in the Parliament on January 14.

In particular, Yanukovych proposes to bring the Ukrainian legislation in accordance with the Convention on cooperation in intercountry adoption.

The bill stipulates that perpetrators are responsible for the implementation of mediation and commercial activities on adoption of children, bringing them under guardianship or curatorship.

A child, who is a citizen of Ukraine, can be adopted by his relatives, as well as citizens from a foreign country, which is a part of the Convention on protection of children's rights and cooperation in international adoption or from a country with which Ukraine signed the agreement on adoption cooperation.

The draft law also proposes to establish that the adoption of a child from by foreigner is not a secret.
