In times of war, drivers should be very careful when using a dashcam on Ukrainian roads. Without knowing exactly where the device cannot be used, a driver may unintentionally harm the state and help the enemy. We will tell you whether it is possible to drive with a dashcam in 2024 on the roads of Ukraine and in which areas video recording is prohibited in the article below.

Will dashcams be banned in Ukraine in 2024?


There is no direct ban on the use of dashcams on public roads at the legislative level. There are no administrative or criminal penalties for video recording of road accidents and ordinary roads. According to lawyers, Ukrainian drivers can use a dashcam to record traffic violations and submit the relevant materials to an insurance company or to the court in the event of an accident.

Remember that all vehicles in Ukraine are required to have a motor third party liability insurance policy. A valid motor third party liability insurance policy is a guarantee of compensation for damages in the event of an accident. On the Visit Ukraine portal, you can buy a motor third party liability insurance policy from a licensed insurer. Packages with a deductible of UAH 3200, UAH 1600 and UAH 0 are available.

On which sections of roads in Ukraine are dash cameras banned?


Every driver should be aware that in 2024, due to martial law, there is still a ban on video recording of infrastructure facilities, fortifications, checkpoints, as well as the location, concentration or movement of military personnel. Please note that in Ukraine, there is criminal liability for unauthorised dissemination of information on the sending, movement of weapons, armaments and ammunition to Ukraine, movement, relocation or deployment of the Armed Forces or other military formations established in accordance with the laws of Ukraine, in accordance with Article 114-2 of the Criminal Code.

At the same time, representatives of the Rivne Patrol Police report that in all regions of Ukraine, the use of dashcams on public roads is not permitted, although there is no such prohibition at the legislative level.

Please note that the rules regarding video recording may differ from region to region in Ukraine.

Remember. An MTPL insurance policy is mandatory for all vehicles in Ukraine. Find out about current prices, conditions and what determines the cost of the policy here.
