The non-discrimination principle


The non-discrimination principle requires and guarantees the equal treatment of different people. This means that no one can be excluded or restricted in their rights and opportunities because they are somehow different from others. The grounds for discrimination prohibited by this principle include gender, age, marital status, language, ethnicity, religious or political beliefs, origin and place of birth, sexual orientation and gender identity, and so on. In other words, no one can fire a person because they are Catholic, for example, just as no one can forbid a child from attending pre-school or going to the cinema because of their skin color.

By the way, the Ukrainian State protects people from discrimination based on all of these and other traits. This is provided by the Law of Ukraine “About principles of prevention and counteraction of discrimination in Ukraine”.
