On June 30 2015, the District Administrative Court of Kiev ruled that the presence of minor children in one’s custody and “gross violations of social adaptation” (lack of work, lack of permanent residence) cannot be lawful requirements in Ukrainian gender recognition procedures. The Court had particularly challenged requirement Nr 3 of the Ukrainian Order No 60 of the Ministry of Health regulating legal gender recognition.

The Court also recognized the right to gender identity, as part of the right to respect for private life (page 10 solutions penultimate paragraph).
