Just at this time she signed a decree on the introduction by 2020 of a full-fledged land market. In this order we are talking about the free market of the Ukrainian lands.
“I have such a level of cynicism not seen! The leader of the faction “Batkivshchyna” goes on the air, says that she is fighting to not sold, not stolen… Blames all but themselves. While in the Cabinet on 17 June 2009 in black and white: to enter a full-fledged land market, especially agricultural until 2020! And this order still hanging on the website of the Cabinet of Ministers. It works! Isn’t this buying and selling? Cynicism, cynicism and more cynicism!”
