This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the requirements of the IMF and its work in Ukraine.
The IMF constantly talked about the need for land reform in Ukraine, but in 2017 this requirement was postponed. In January 2019, the fund again spoke about the necessity of the land market, naming this reform among the opportunities to fundamentally transform the Ukrainian economy.
During the conference “Land as a factor in the development of the Ukrainian village,” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that “in the model that we offer with the government, only Ukrainian citizens or Ukrainian companies can buy or sell land. Horror stories about the Chinese, Arabs or aliens who will take our land by wagons - this is nonsense. The land is the property of citizens,” said Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine has published a draft law that will open the land market next year. The explanatory note lists those who will be able to buy ownership of agricultural land: “citizens of Ukraine, territorial communities, the state, legal entities of Ukraine and foreign citizens or stateless persons in case of acquisition by inheritance and the obligation to alienate the plot during the year.”
