The second day of protests of landowners in the Kherson region. Yesterday, farm owners and representatives of the National Corps blocked the Antonovsky Bridge, today they were gathering under the Kherson Regional State Administration.
Markets have not been working for two weeks. Ukrainian farmers are forced to throw their plants in the trash. Supermarkets sell imported fruits and vegetables with a margin price.
Why does the government need such a “quarantine”? First, hide illegal imports with closed borders. Secondly, to destroy the small and medium farmer. They sold the land and purposefully lead Ukrainian farmers to bankruptcy, taking away all the opportunities to buy land. And it will be possible to blame everything on the coronavirus.
The result of the protests in the Kherson region is instant — the Cabinet of Ministers is going to open 280 markets in Ukraine. We will go further and demand the creation of all conditions for the work of a small and medium farmer. As promised, we will protect the farmers even after the opening of the so-called “land market”.
