Following the increase in the rate of rape cases, especially against minors all over the world, many have called for more stringent actions to be taken against the perpetuators of the barbaric act and their calls seem to have yielded results as a new law to out rightly castrate rapist has just been formed.
Ukraine took the bold step in establishing the new law which will have convicted paedophiles and rapists castrated by chemical injection.
According to Ukrinform news agency, the legislation will apply to thousands of men aged between 18 and 65 found guilty of raping or sexually abusing minors as the pedophiles will face “coercive chemical castration” which will “involves the forced injection of anti-androgen drugs consisting of chemicals that should reduce libido and sexual activity”.
According to Ukraine National Police Chief, Vyacheslav Abroskin, “Five children were raped in four regions of Ukraine…within just 24 hours.
“And these are the crimes which parents reported to police despite their fear and anxiety to do so.
“We can only guess how many latent sexual crimes against children we have in the country.”
“In one horrific recent case, 11-year-old Daria Lukyanenko, from Odessa region, was killed after she “fought back” against an alleged rape attempt by a family friend Nikolay Tarasov, 22.”
“Her body was found after a six-day search in a village cesspool and the man was detained for attempted rape and murder.”
“Hundreds attended her funeral and the suspect’s mother Maria publicly “disowned” her son.”
“Earlier armed police intervened after his family home was besieged by angry locals.”
The law will apply to all child rapes including “unnatural” rape and sexual abuse of children above and below the age of puberty.
In 2017 official figures showed 320 child rapes in Ukraine but the numbers of paedophile sex abuse cases are believed to run into the thousands.
Under the new laws, Ukraine is also to set up a public register of paedophiles jailed for child rape and sexual abuse of minors.
