On May 19, 2020 following the lockdown and border closure which resulted in difficulties with the departure of children born in surrogacy programs, UARM organized a conference on "Recent developments in reproductive medicine in Ukraine - what is happening?".
Helen Babich took part in the press conference. The attorney said that the concern about the inability to take away the children born in surrogacy programs is a force majeure, which is not related to the absence or existence of a special law in the field of ART. Government officials ignored a request from UARM several months ago where the association asked to intervene and help foreign nationals arrive in Ukraine to take away their children.
