Petro Poroshenko told who prey on the land moratorium

The President of Ukraine said during a speech in Rivne region.

Петро Порошенко розповів, хто наживається на земельному мораторії

The moratorium on land sales in Ukraine in no way protects the rights of customary land owners, since criminals are finding ways to buy land to bypass the ban, informs Rus.Media.

The head of state noted that the sale of land in Ukraine will give a strong impetus to the development of the economy and ensure a leap in GDP.

“Why do we restrict these stupid bans the rights of land owners? Farmers are suffering, owners, communities suffer. Cashing in on the current situation, only thieves and speculators, and we are taking the ostrich position, close our eyes and pretend that nothing is happening. The country is ready for honest conversation. Moreover, it is a powerful locomotive that pulls the economy of the country,” he said.

Poroshenko added that at the moment in terms of the land veto the law enforcement agencies are unable to protect the rights of land owners and protect them from the manipulations of speculators.

The President promises to establish a “high minimum prices for land and high registration fee” to local governments and residents received a high income from the sale of their land.

“Words “earth” and “sell” can not be combined, but if someone thinks that the ground state, it is not true. It has long been divided and belongs to landowners. The function of the state to protect the peasant, to protect from not deceived him and cheaply not take the land. Now, the government performs this function? No,” admitted the head of state.
