Ukraine will consider legalising same-sex marriage after a petition calling on the country to do so was signed more than 28,000 times.

As it crossed the 25,000 threshold required for consideration from the current acting president, Volodymyr Zelensky now has 10 days to respond to it.

Although homosexuality is not illegal in Ukraine, same-sex marriages and civil partnerships are not recognised. This means that certain rights, including co-ownership of property, are not accessible for gay couples.
