The statement by the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk about the need to sell 1 million hectares of land, alaysia state property demonstrates not only his incompetence, but also about the readiness to surrender for nothing the strategic state interests. This was stated by the leader of the faction «Batkivshchyna» Yulia Tymoshenko, commenting on the words of the Prime Minister in his next «quarter», reports the website of the party «Batkivshchyna».
«Ukraine has 42 million hectares of fertile black soil, through which it can support not only themselves, but all the neighbors. Now, however, the hectares of Ukrainian land is 32 times less than the average in the EU – $ 500 vs. $ 16,000. Now there is no full-fledged land cadastre, neither the relevant legislation nor the economic feasibility for the sale of land», – said Yulia Tymoshenko.
According to her, it is quite obvious that there are many people wishing to buy land for next to nothing.
«And it will be oligarchs and large foreign capital. What can we gain?» – outraged the leader of «Batkivshchyna».
The conviction of Tymoshenko, «to declare in such circumstances, the necessity of an immediate sale of land is a crime against the state and a complete loss of its strategic prospects.»
«This is another proof of clan-oligarchic nature of the government of Yatsenyuk. And this is the explanation why so Yatsenyuk kept the post: haven’t took everything!» – Yulia Tymoshenko said.
She also stressed that at the initiative of the faction «Batkivshchyna» in Ukraine extended the moratorium on sale of agricultural land. The decision was supported by almost all factions of the Parliament.
«Yatsenyuk explains the need to sell the fact that these lands are in the shadow of corruption and trafficking. I want to remind him that the task of the government in this case is to eliminate the shadow and corruption continue to use a resource for economic growth. But the sale is primitive and it is not a strategic approach,» said Yulia Tymoshenko.
But strategically correct decision for the state, in its opinion, would best support farmers.
Tymoshenko reminded that on the eve took part in the Congress of the Association of farmers and private landowners of Ukraine, and together with «Batkivshchyna» they develop a package of bills to support Ukrainian agriculture.
«Batkivshchyna» will never allow that our main wealth – land – was turned into a product for the purpose of profit primitive dealers from the authorities,» said Yulia Tymoshenko.
Recall, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk considers it necessary to auction off 1 million hectares of land in state ownership, but is used in the shadow turnover.
The Verkhovna Rada extended the moratorium on sale of agricultural land until January 1, 2017.
