Protesters have surrounded the parliamentary building in Kyiv, thus protesting against land reform, supported by Ukrainian MPs today. The correspondent of 112 Ukraine reports this.

"As soon as they voted for it, everyone started shouting “shame”... They surrounded the entrance and exit to Verkhovna Rada, did not let the MPs out.  After that, law enforcement officers made a corridor so that the parliamentarians could leave the Verkhovna Rada building," the correspondent said.

After a violent reaction, the protesters began to disperse.  The rally participants said they would meet in the future to express their position.

As we reported earlier, the Verkhovna Rada supported the bill on the opening of the land market No. 2178-10.  227 MPs from the Servant of the People faction and 13 unaffiliated parliamentarians voted "for."

On January 18, 2001, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the Law No. 2242-III, which established that, temporarily, until the adoption of the Land Code, landowners could not sell, give, or somehow alienate the land, but they could inherit and sell it to the state and public needs.
