Speedy marriage service already operative in four Ukrainian cities
Kyiv document service center Hotovo has launched a service of marriage registration within one day.
According to Hromadske news agency, the service started its work with three couples getting married on August 14.
Pavlo Petrenko, Ukraine's Justice Minister, says the same service will be launched in Lviv on August 19. And until the end of the month, it will be introduced in Kherson. There it is designed to facilitate marriage registration for Ukrainian citizens residing in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea.
The Justice Minister promises that if pilot marriage centers prove to be a success, they will be spread all over Ukraine.
Currently, speedy marriage centers are operating in Odesa, Mariupol, Sievierodonetsk and now Kyiv. For the past ten days of their work, around 200 couples have got married.
