Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk said that the authorities cannot satisfy everyone, their task is to balance the interests of all stakeholders, to set transparent rules of the game and to support fair competition. He wrote about it on his Facebook page.

"We cannot satisfy everyone, our task is to balance the interests of all stakeholders (not one particular group), to establish transparent rules of the game and to support fair competition. This reform is carried out first and foremost for Ukrainians and for the benefit of Ukrainians," Honcharuk wrote.

The Prime Minister noted that the new reform is not about just selling the land, but about "restoring justice and human rights to decide for yourself what to do with your unit - to sell it, work on it or lend it".

"Prior to submitting these bills to the public, we conducted numerous consultations and negotiations, worked out several dozens of possible scenarios. Then, within two months, we had a constant dialogue, both with supporters and opponents of this initiative, in order to arrive at a common understanding," he added.

As we reported earlier, today, the Verkhovna Rada will look into the draft bills on the opening of the land sale market. According to the plenary day plan, this would be among the central topics for consideration on November 13.

Eleven draft laws on the opening of the land market will be considered. Another bill of interest concerns the opportunities for foreigners to purchase land parcels in Ukraine (the non-agricultural parcels located beyond the inhabited localities).
