President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that according to the market model the government is currently developing, only Ukrainians will be able to purchase land in Ukraine. The president stated this during a meeting with farmers broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"First and foremost: the land belongs to Ukrainians. In the model, our government proposes, only Ukrainian citizens and Ukrainian companies will be able to buy or sell land,” the President said.
Zelensky added that it was very important for Ukrainians to have a full non-hybrid right to use their land.
“Land is the property of the citizens, but there must finally appear not a hybrid, but full ownership over their native land. This full-fledged right is very important - it is the right to own, the right to use and the right to dispose of their land,” Zelensky said.
According to Zelensky, almost one million Ukrainians Ukrainians have died without ever having acquired ownership of their land.
“During this time, almost one of seven million Ukrainians owning the land have died, and have not been given a chance by the state to become wealthy masters of their land for they were not granted property rights,” Zelensky summed up.
As it was reported earlier, Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk announced that land market in Ukraine would be opened on October 1, 2020.
At the same time, President Zelensky stated that according to the land market model developed by the government, only Ukrainians will be able to buy land in Ukraine.
