Reading time: 3 min.

Illegal manufacture, production, storage, smuggling of narcotics is prohibited by current Ukrainian legislation. Criminal punishment for the above crimes is provided, in particular, by Articles 307 and 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Every suspect/accused has an inalienable right to qualified legal protection during investigation and trial. The narcotics lawyer of our law firm Prykhodko and Partners will provide professional assistance in cases related to charges under Articles 307 and 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

We provide:

  • Consultancy.
  • Acquaintance with the materials of the criminal case under Articles 307 and 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
  • Participation in investigative procedural actions (collection of documents, information, evidence, etc.).
  • Protection of the interests of suspects in court.
  • Appeal and cassation.

We suggest that you familiarize yourself with the legal basis of the issue in more detail.

Legislative framework of the issue

The Criminal Code of Ukraine contains more than 20 articles related to violations of order in the sphere of drug trafficking. These are articles 305-327 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The most dangerous criminal and penal acts are:

  • Sale of narcotic drugs (Article 307 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
  • Illegal production, acquisition, manufacture, storage of narcotic drugs (Article 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).

For crimes in the field of illegal drug trafficking, the current legislation provides for various types of punishments. In most cases, they are associated with long-term imprisonment and confiscation of property. It is a mistake to assume that the sale (sale) of drugs occurs only in cases where there is the very fact of selling the substance and receiving a certain amount of money for it. Even if a person decides to gift/treat/transfer narcotic substances free of charge to another person, his actions fall under Article 307 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

The severity of the punishment depends on the crime committed. Example:

  1. Drug smuggling - imprisonment for 5-8 years.
  2. Purchase, illegal production, sale, storage of drugs - deprivation of liberty for a term of 4-8 years.
  3. Public use of drugs - restriction of liberty for up to 4 years, deprivation of liberty for up to 3 years.
