Curfew for youth


Officers of the Starobelsk district administration suggested the town rada to adopt the resolution about the introduction of a ‘curfew’ for youth for autumn and winter.

Now minors under 16 must stay at home after 22:00. If they are older, up to 18, they may stay at large till 23:00, and till midnight in holidays. Correspondingly, the timetable of cafes, discotheques and other entertainment centers must be corrected. The innovators believe that these measures will diminish the crime, alcoholism and drug addition among minors.

As to the legal angle of these reforms, the authorities in Lugansk do not believe it substantial.
