Headline: PM about land reform: We want to support a farming sector and will not back the idea to transfer resources to foreigners and large agricultural holdings
A land reform offered by the Government envisages the establishment of
such a model of the market turnover of lands which will allow to develop small
farming enterprises as well as to impose restrictions on purchasing land
resources by foreign citizens and large agricultural holdings, Prime Minister
Volodymyr Groysman stated during a press conference “Results of
Government’s Yearly Activities”.
“We did not have a format as well as a model of the turnover of lands. We
have introduced it. We are not supporting the idea of the land reform, which
will be carried out in the interests of agricultural holdings or foreign
citizens. We will develop the farming sector as well”, noted the Prime
He emphasized that such developed vision of land reform should be
supported by the Parliament because this decision benefits the interests of the
citizens of the country.
“The same vision applies to the pension reform as well – it is designed
to benefit the interests of the Ukrainian pensioners. These are vitally
important decisions. The same as public and transparent privatization. Who will
be against these decisions? Only those who are connected with shadow schemes “,
noted the Head of Government.
He added that now the coalition is engaged in discussing of the
Government’s proposals as well as demonstrating the synergy towards this issue.
