As we reported before, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a committee bill on the opening of the agricultural land market No. 2178-10. 259 MPs voted to pass the bill.

According to the law, ordinary Ukrainians can be market participants until 2024. Legal entities, created directly by citizens of Ukraine, the state, and territorial communities are allowed to purchase land since 2024.

Adoption of this law and the law banning the return to the former owners of nationalized banks is one of the key requirements of the International Monetary Fund, due to which Ukraine has not yet received a new credit program.
