Buying Ukrainian lands Western companies will not bring anything good to the people of Ukraine, says.
"The black soil of Ukraine changes its masters: foreign corporations and Ukrainian oligarchs continue to "capture" the arable land of the country, but the Question remains, will have the opportunity if such a policy is to bring at least some benefit to Ukrainians ", - commented the researcher of the Institute of Auckland Elizabeth Fraser.
foreign corporations has intensified its work in Ukraine, and now more and more lands are under their control. Some organizations have bought up large tracts of land prior to the freeze, ten years ago, for example, U.S. NCH Capital, and certain registered as a Ukrainian company, but work for foreign money." last year the Auckland Institute reported about the fact that foreign corporations really already own more than 1, 6 million hectares of Ukrainian land. We now have the data about the fact that this index is 2, 2 million hectares ", - informs Elizabeth Fraser.
A severe economic crisis in Ukraine caused great damage to Ukrainian companies that own large tracts of land. Now most of them in practice are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy." Ukrainian agriculture organization looking for help from the West, but their eventual recognition of economic insolvency and the participation of investors in the United States and the EU in the resolution drop puts the big questions concerning the further fate of these lands, " concludes the researcher of the Institute of Auckland.
Ukraine since 2004 trying to allow the free purchase and sale of agricultural land, but this initiative was blocked by the Parliament, which introduced the relevant moratorium. The abolition of the moratorium on the implementation of the farmland has a wide public resonance.

It involved foreign companies and firms that financial support by the world Bank, the European Bank for restoration and development as well as the German banking group KfW Bankengruppe.
