The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine offered only products containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) be marked, cancelling obligatory requirement for "GMO Free" labeling.

Corresponding draft law No. 6001/1 amending certain laws of Ukraine regarding providing information on GMO content in food products was recently registered in Verkhovna Rada.

"All food products in circulation in Ukraine have to include information on GMO content registered according to the set procedure, or ingredients made of registered GMOs, in a form easy for consumers to recognize," the document tells. According to it the procedure for labeling food products containing GMOs or ingredients made from GMOs is to be approved by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
