The case concerned the complaints of two people in the moratorium on sale of agricultural land.
The European court of human rights (ECHR) found the moratorium on selling agricultural land in Ukraine violation of human rights.
This is stated in the press release of the ECHR.
“The absolute prohibition of Ukraine on the purchase and sale of agricultural land has led to the violation of human rights, the government should take a more balanced law,” – said in the message.
It is also noted that in may the European court ruled in the case of Zelenchuk and Tsytsura against Ukraine.
In particular, the case concerned the complaints of two people (the residents of Ternopil and Ivano-Frankivsk) on the moratorium on selling agricultural land, which had claimed a violation of their property rights as owners of such sites.
The court noted that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine is mainly distributed agricultural land to people who previously worked in collective farms, but the authorities imposed a ban on the sale of such lands.
The government argued that this measure prevented the concentration of land in few hands.
In addition, the court found that the state has not determined a fair balance between the General interests of the community and the right of ownership of the applicants.
The court ruled that the government must take legislative measures to ensure the proper fair balance for owners of agricultural land.
In this case, the ECtHR stressed that the court’s decision does not mean demands on Ukraine to immediately enter an unlimited market for the sale of agricultural land.
The court does not priceideal the applicants monetary compensation.
