The relevant Law (Draft No. 2148) on the provision of personal voting for the people’s deputies of Ukraine at the plenary sessions of the Verkhovna Rada was adopted in the second reading and generally at the evening session of Parliament on December 19.
The Law amends the Criminal Code of Ukraine (supplemented by Article 364-2). For deliberate exercise by a deputy at a plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada, voting instead of another deputy (non-personal vote) will be punished by a fine of from 3 to 5 thousand NMDG (from 51 to 85 thousand UAH).

If at the plenary session the fact of violation of the requirements for personal voting by a deputy instead of another MP is revealed, consideration of the agenda at his request is suspended.

Such notification, together with the minutes, the transcript of the relevant plenary meeting, as well as a video recording of its preparation, shall be submitted to the Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada for forwarding to the State Bureau of Investigation.
In the event that a journalist accredited to the Verkhovna Rada at the plenary meeting finds out that the requirements for personal voting have been violated by voting in lieu of another MP, such journalist shall have the right to submit a statement to the BP apparatus on the revealed fact, together with relevant materials of photography or video recording.
