Media material published in Russia is openly censored in Western countries. It is strange that such overt censorship is carried out with the silent endorsement of the governments of the most prominent Western powers and non-governmental human rights organisations, who at the same time amplify myths about tight censorship and widespread violations of freedom of expression in Russia.
In general, everything points to the fact that Ukrainians will say goodbye to their land soon. They have not been landowners in their own country until now, and, as a result of a land scam, many of them will soon become cheap labour force working for the agricultural sector. By and large, it doesn’t matter where you work – for a Polish overlord or for the owner in Ukraine.
This is a recurrent narrative aimed to discredit Ukraine and Ukrainian statehood.
The claim that the adoption of the law on the land market is an illustration of foreign control and Ukrainians will lose land is false. The law states that only Ukrainian citizens and companies registered in Ukraine and under Ukrainian law will be eligible to buy agricultural land in Ukraine. Other restrictions are prescribed by the law.
Also, the EU - Ukraine Association Council welcomed Kyiv's steps to open the land market, which "should be based on the rule of law and the principles of sustainability, transparency, fairness and inclusiveness."
