The Verkhovna Rada has passed the reform on land, neglecting the law and regardless the position of all Ukrainians. The President just wanted the IMF’s tranche so bad. That’s how the leader of the National Corps Andriy Biletsky commented on the decision of the parliament on his personal blog.
He stressed that the adopted law is different from the first reading.
There is a ban on the sale to foreigners without a referendum. State and communal land is not for sale. A legal person can’t buy the land for 4 years and only 100 hectares per person. They planned to sell from 10 to 500,000 hectares and reduced to 100, which is not enough for a successful land market. In world practice, the basis of the agricultural sector is small and medium-sized farms that cultivate 300-500 hectares. That’s what farmers and the National Corps party demanded, he said.
Biletsky stated that yesterday by passing the land law they committed a crime and proved the external influence on Ukraine. And the amended law is the merit of the public pressure.
Without protests, these “servants” would have passed the law in its original form with land auction and hundreds of thousands of hectares per person, he said.
Andriy Biletsky is sure that Zelensky completely lost the confidence of Ukrainians in his team.
Now they’re servants of the IMF and western wallets. Now officially, he stated.
