The leader of the “servant of the people” Dmitry Razumkov allows for the introduction of market of agricultural land throughout the year. He said this in an interview Strenia.
“The land market will need to open. The moratorium is imposed from year to year because it is profitable. Requires that owners of land could use it. There will be legislative base. The guys are currently working on this. On the one hand it is necessary to protect national interests, and on the other the owner,” said Razumkov.
In response to the question, what time the force aims for the lifting of the moratorium, he said, “For me this year.”
However, he stressed that Ukraine has not conducted a quality audit of agricultural lands.
“We still do not understand, in whose hands and how much land. It concerns state land,” – said Dmitry Razumkov.
The land code No. 2768-III was adopted by the Parliament on 25 October of the same year. With the help of the document found that prior to 1 January 2005 not to sell or dispose of land for agriculture or units (permitted exchange, transfer, inheritance and confiscation for public needs). Since this is called the moratorium on sale of farmland. This temporary ban was extended 10 times (in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018).
Last year Parliament extended the ban on the sale of farmland until January 1, 2020. The deputies instructed the Cabinet until 1 March 2019 to develop and submit to the Verkhovna Rada a draft law on turnover of agricultural lands, but the government has not complied with this order.
