In Ukraine, the fund may be established agricultural lands, which will represent the state's interests in the land market. About this Feb. 1, said at a press conference deputy of the State Agency of Land Resources Nikolai Kalyuzhny passes Bagnet.
According to him, at this point in the reserve is about 3 million hectares of agricultural land that no one transferred to the ownership and or are on loan or not used at all. As stressed by Nicholas Kalyuzhny, the Fund will not only dispose of these sites, but also increase the state reserve.
In the short term to the Fund could reach two million hectares of land. We are talking about the land on which the villagers still have not formalized the ownership for various reasons. The State Agency of Land Resources, these sites are called as "unsolicited shares.
In this case, Nicholas Kalyuzhny stressed that "no one who has to take land by force will not." He noted that the Civil Code of Ukraine is such a thing as "dead inheritance", when in the absence of heirs under the will the property passes to the community. And so this concept has been applied to land units, must also be amended accordingly.
Nicholas Kalyuzhny also said that the creation of such a specialized agency is not a good experience of Ukraine. Such funds are, in particular, in Germany, Poland and Hungary. Their main task is the completion of state reserves of land, as well as their effective use. For example, in Hungary, single pensioners may enter into a contract with the Fund on the transfer of their property rights to land after their death. In exchange, the Fund provides additional payments to their pensions, depending on the value of the land.
Recall, the government expects the next year and a half to prepare the necessary legislative framework for the market opening of agricultural land in 2013.
