On August 11, the Ukrainian government said on its official website that it has asked the websites of manufacturers and importers of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco systems to verify the age of visitors. These websites include information about the sale, maintenance, and accessories for tobacco and nicotine products.
According to the regulations of the Ukrainian government, access to websites selling tobacco systems and e-cigarettes requires the development of an identification system and requires visitors to provide documents that can prove their age.
Government officials have adopted resolutions aimed at implementing the requirements of the laws and regulations (Law 1978) concerning the protection of the public from the harmful effects of tobacco.
At the same time, they note that the introduction of EU best practices will help protect children and young people from the harmful effects of tobacco products, limit their exposure to these products and prevent underage use.
