The Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jan Tombinski has welcomed new amendments to the Labour Code, prohibiting discrimination on various grounds. The amendments were adopted by Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine yesterday.
"This is an important element in meeting the requirements of the Visa Liberalisation Action Plan," said Tombinski, adding: "Equal rights for all Ukrainian citizens form an important element of fundamental human rights. The respect of every individual, independent of his personal characteristics, is at the heart of a modern European society."
He noted it is very important that amendments are maintained in the new Labour Code, which will be deliberated by the Verkhovna Rada in the nearest future. (EU Neighbourhood Info)
