Morarorium Comes Back

Lytvyn group in parliament is initiating prolongation the moratorium on sale of agricultural land until 2010.

The relevant draft law, which Parliamentary Deputy Kateryna Vaschuk of the Lytvyn Bloc prepared, has already been registered in the parliament. Lytvyn Bloc favored a land inventory with the aim of determining who actually own the land and the legal basis on which it is owned.

Early, parliamentary deputies Petro Symonenko, Oleksandr Tkachenko, and Volodymyr Matveev from Communist Party recently proposed that the parliament extend the moratorium on sale of agricultural land from 2008 until 2011.

President Viktor Yuschenko is confident that the moratorium is the cause of corruption on the land market.
