KIEV, March 16 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s parliament on Thursday raised the minimum legal age for women to get married from 17 to 18. A total of 259 deputies voted for that, which is well over 226 votes needed to pass a bill.

The authors of the bill say that thus Ukraine has brought its legislation in conformity with norms of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which the country joined in 1991.

Now both men and women in Ukraine have the right to get married starting from the age of 18.
