Laws of Ukraine are legal documents created by the Ukrainian legislative power, Verkhovna Rada and establish the state order in country. The Laws of Ukraine support and supplement the fundamental law of country, Constitution of Ukraine. Some laws were codified into Civil Code, Criminal Code and so on.
