The bill assumes that the animal cannot be transported anywhere, sold without identification and registration, explains lawyer Yuri Belous.

You will have to pay for the registration of pets. How much – the document has not yet been registered. Segodnya news asked Ukrainians if they were ready to spend.

Irina Podgornaya, a resident of Kiev, said that she was ready to pay for her cat: “He is an ordinary one, a yard cat, but very beautiful.” Tamara Golubenko admitted: “To be honest, unnecessary spending is undesirable. But you will not get anywhere if the law is passed.” For Natalia from Kiev, the cost of registering an animal is important: “If it is inexpensive, I will register, if it is expensive, I will not register.”

“The owner is actually not responsible for the cruelty to the animal. Because if a person throws the animal out into the street, then it is impossible to understand whose it is,” – explains Alexander.

Baleen and tailed beasts can be identified by a special chip. Today the cost of such a service in the capital's veterinary clinics ranges from 150 to 500 hryvnia. Similar laws apply in the USA, Canada, Japan and the EU. Moreover, for non-compliance with the rules – a considerable fine.
