A Russian politician has called for the "chemical castration of paedophiles" following a spate of Ukraine child attacks.
Pro-Putin MP Boris Chernyshov says the "forced administration of substances" should be pumped into offenders, with a political party in Moscow producing new legislation.
Said legislation is now under review by the government, with Russian ally Belarus already following up the use of castration against convicted child sex offenders.

One brutal attack reported last month was carried out by a Russian soldier returning from Ukraine, who is said to have sexually abused two girls aged 10 and 12, prompting a review of harsher punishments for sex offenders.
The alleged attacker, named only as Sergei Sh, had been wearing Wagner mercenary uniform while threatening the schoolgirls before he is said to have raped them.
He told the pair he would blow them up with a grenade unless they submitted to him in a grim alleged attack just a day after he had arrived back from Ukraine.
Jabs are now under review by the Russian government, with Mr Chernyshov saying the injections will "reduce sexual attraction for a long time or permanently."
He warned Russia needed to "use the experience" of other countries, while nurse Zoya Manaenko, 69, says the castration laws should be used as an ultimate punishment.

She said: "These people need to be stopped somehow. They commit terrible crimes against children. So it is right that the law allows this."
Kazakhstan is the latest country to change its system of dealing with convicted paedophiles, with chemical castration carried out before prisoners are released.
Valentina Matviyenko, 74, a top Russian politician, had previously called for the castration of paedophiles, with the upper house representative voicing her support for the injections.
Those jabs would be conducted during the prisoner's time behind bars, with one convicted paedophile saying he knows it will "affect my health" and make him "sorry" for committing such a heinous act.
