KYIV (Reuters) - Ukraine has launched an electronic register naming fathers who fail to pay child support, allowing women to check a man’s credentials before entering a relationship with him, Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko said on Tuesday.


The register has 75,000 names on it and they are not allowed to travel abroad if they do not pay for more than six months. Traffic police who stop a driver on the register can impound the vehicle until child support is paid.
