President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky publicly signed the law No. 2194, which provides for the transfer of state-owned land outside settlements to communal ownership of village, settlement and city councils. The signing took place during the Ukraine 30. Earth forum.
"Law No. 2194, which fundamentally changes the land management of our state and which is called the land Constitution," Zelensky said, commenting on the law before it was signed.
As we reported earlier, on April 28, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the Law of Ukraine No. 2194 “On Amending the Land Code of Ukraine and Other Legislative Acts to Improve the Management and Deregulation System in the Sphere of Land Relations”.
MPs have been considering amendments to this document for more than a month. This law ensures the transfer of state-owned lands to communal ownership of territorial communities.
It also proposes to allow communities to dispose of agricultural land, which includes all steppes and meadowlands. Local governments will be able to manage lands outside the settlements.
