Kateryna Moskalenko (Ph.D. in Law, Attorney at Law, Associate Professor of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, University of Zurich Visiting Scholar) will deliver a lecture on Surrogacy in Ukraine: Overview of Legal Regulation.
Ukraine is one of countries in Europe, allowing surrogacy both for Ukrainians and for foreigners. Convenient geographical position, good level of medical services and moderate prices for years attracted foreigners to use surrogacy in Ukraine. Moreover, legal regulation on surrogacy in Ukraine is very liberal as no special law on human reproduction has been adopted yet. It is interesting to discover the usual contents of the surrogacy contract in Ukraine and to research the national court decisions on surrogacy. In February 2022 a number of drafts of law on assisted human reproduction has been submitted for consideration to Ukrainian Parliament and it is of interest to discover newly drafted rules on surrogacy.

In Ukraine assisted reproductive technologies (ART) are believed to be one of highly developed field of medicine with very liberal regulation. Such specific situation has social and economic backgrounds. However, being the most liberal legislation in Europe it has very sensitive gapes that caused discrimination of unmarried persons and LGBT community. Before the war we had started the legal reform in ART and we are going to renew this process in peaceful autumn of 2022.
