Authorities' attempts to sell Ukrainian land at all costs were imposed by the external management of the International Monetary Fund. Сhairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life Party and MP, Viktor Medvedchuk said this while talking to journalists on the sidelines of the Verkhovna Rada.
"You know, you remember, it all started with 200 thousand, then there were proposals about 100 thousand, now 10 thousand. And do you remember where those 10 thousand come from? 10 thousand - this is when Mr. Zelensky went to the region, it was either Kyiv region or Zhytomyr region, where several people came together, representatives of the countryside, probably agrarian business, probably those working on the land where the issue was being discussed. And the people who participated in the highly intellectual conversation (it should be noted right away) said: ‘No, well, this is a lot, after all, 200 and 100 thousand. It would probably be normal to have 500 ha or 1000 ha’. I would like to remind you that the maximum amount of land sales under the Land Code is 100 hectares, not 100 thousand, but 100 hectares. So, these people who participated in the conversation started talking about 500, about 1000. And then Mr. Zelensky says: ‘Well, 500 is probably not enough, but 10 thousand would be normal. Well, how?' Silence, pause. And then a positive answer: 'Yes, probably 10 thousand'. That's how the figure of 10 thousand came up," the MP said.
"Well, it is clear that it was insincere, it was performed, and, in my opinion, it felt phony. I believe that in such cases there must be an expert judgment, there must be a justification. And, of course, it is impossible to find the objective justification of what 10 thousand may be, because it is all evil. Attempts to sell the land at all costs, an effort to follow the instructions of the Soros Fund today at any cost, to execute what is required by the external administration today, what is necessary for IMF. It is impossible to do so, and we will do everything to prevent this from happening," Medvedchuk emphasized.
As we reported earlier, The Сhairman of the Political Council of Opposition Platform - For Life Party and MP Viktor Medvedchuk stated that it is necessary to observe the norms of the Constitution and the Land Code, providing the people with land plots and the right to own it, and then talk about its sale.
