Ukraine's Constitutional Court has declared constitutional the law on condemning communist and national-socialist totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and a ban on promoting their symbols.

A respective decision was made at a sitting of the Constitutional Court's Grand Chamber on Tuesday, a well-informed interlocutor at the court told Ukrinform.

The Constitutional Court during the closed part of a plenary session on July 16 continued to consider the case on a constitutional motion filed by 46 people's deputies regarding the constitutionality of the law on condemning communist and national-socialist totalitarian regimes in Ukraine and a ban on promoting their symbols.
