A total of 231 lawmakers voted for the bill on the amendments to Section X “Transitional Provisions” of the Land Code of Ukraine regarding the extension of the ban on the alienation of farmland. Twenty-eight MPs voted against, twenty abstained, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
The adoption of this law aims to extend for one year the duration of the moratorium on the sale or otherwise alienation of farmland for settling at the legislative level the procedure for the circulation of these lands and developing the necessary legal acts.
