CWN Editor's Note: The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Ukraine is in violation of the European Convention of Human Rights, a human rights treaty drafted in 1950, because Ukraine does not offer legal recognition of homosexual unions.

The judges cited an anti-discrimination provision of the convention.

The Ukrainian constitution defines marriage as the union of a man and a woman. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is a proponent of legislation that would legalize same-sex civil unions.
