The number of the condemned to death is growing
Almost for two years the death verdicts have not been executed in Ukraine. The operating Penal Code determines the most severe punishment, except the death penalty, as the incarceration for 15 years. There happen crimes, for which 15 years of incarceration is the insufficient verdict, so judges have to rule the death penalty. Last year 146 persons were condemned to death. These were murderers. Taken together, they killed 170 men, 88 women and 27 children; they also tried to kill 75 persons more.
