Zelenskyi assures that the land won't go by train to other countries from July 1
President Volodymyr Zelenskyi stated that as part of the land reform, Ukrainians will be able to own land from July 1, and there'll be no surprises in this context.
Zelenskyi said this during a press conference within the "Ukraine 30. Economy without oligarchs" forum, Ukrinform reports.
"I believe people are less afraid of land reform, they already see that nothing has been taken from anyone, and from July 1 I know people will have the opportunity to own land, and we'll see that from July 1, I think, the land won't go by train to other world countries. I think it will stay, I think there'll be no surprises," Zelenskyi said.
He added that many more by-laws needed to be adopted to complete land reform.
As reported by Rubryka, on March 31, 2020, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the law "On amendments to certain legislative acts of Ukraine concerning the circulation of agricultural land." On April 28, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi signed the law.
The document stipulates that from July 2021 the moratorium on the sale of agricultural land, except for state-owned land, will be lifted. Citizens of Ukraine, territorial communities, and the state may acquire the right of ownership of agricultural land plots.
