Ukraine takes major step towards plant-based medicine legalisation 

Ukrainian politicians advanced the first reading of a bill aiming to legalise plant-based medicine. Garnering 268 votes in favour during the session in the Verkhovna Rada, both President Zelenskyy and Health Minister Viktor Liashko have publicly backed the proposal. The bill seeks to regulate the medical, industrial and scientific use of various plant-based medicine products. Amid the backdrop of Russia’s invasion in 2022 and the resultant trauma, Zelenskyy and Liashko emphasised the therapeutic potential of plant-based medicine, especially for PTSD. Earlier, a national poll indicated that 65 per cent of Ukrainians support plant-based medicine legalisation. Activists see this as a major victory for a cause that’s been championed for years.
