Land`s Constitution: Ukraine Moves to the Free Market


On May 24th, the president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenski, signed a law that will facilitate a land decentralization program. During his speech on the Ukraine 30 forum, he presented Law #2194, known as the Land`s constitution. Moreover, the Parliament recently adopted Law #2195 and few other proposals that will drastically change land management in Ukraine. 

Below there are some key points from the recently introduced laws: 

  • During the first period, exclusively Ukrainians can buy and sell land
  • Purchase and sale of land will be available only through online auctions
  • Land can be on a balance of the communal property of rural and urban councils or territorial communities
  • Tenant will have a priority right to purchase land

Despite these major changes the Law removes differences and inconsistencies in the national legislation by giving a more detailed explanation.
