The current parliament will not adopt a law on the land market, Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn has said.


The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

The Verkhovna Rada of the current convocation will not adopt a law on the land market, Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn has said.

"I should calm everyone down, and say that the Verkhovna Rada has not put a draft law on the land market on its agenda," he said live on the parliament's Rada television channel on Friday.

"Moreover, a bill has been tabled to postpone the introduction of the land market until January 1, 2014," he added.

The speaker also commented on the parliament's decision to pass a law introducing a state land bank. Lytvyn said that people who are criticizing the law, speaking only about one of its proposals - the creation of a state land bank - are not reading the law.

"In my opinion, the law has significant pluses and minuses, which will have to be addressed in future," he said.

Parliamentary elections in Ukraine are scheduled for October 28.
