No hurry with land market
MyLand - 07/02/2012:
Today, on February 7, 2012, the Parliament of Ukraine started its tenth session of the sixth convocation. President of Ukraine Victor Yanukovich, whose speach was interrupted with chanting "Freedom for Yulia Tymoshenko" and "Shame!", addressed the members of the Parliament in respect of land reform and land market. President said that interests of peasants-owners of agricultural land were the priority of land reform. He asked Deputies not to pass the law on land market in a hurry. He reminded that this law was concerned not just with land, but also with destinies and lives of million peasants residing in rural areas.
We think that this speach may be symbolize a decision to postpone the issue of land market till better times, after Parliamentary elections, for example.
The complete text of President's speach in English is available here.
