"Many people argue about whether a land market is necessary or not. This is a controversial issue... Has anyone explained how this land market should look like? No one has. So let us in first place develop a model, discuss it in broad terms, consult with the Ukrainian citizens, the owners of land plots, and then take an agreed decision. This is my train of thoughts. But if someone wants to lift the moratorium and buy up all the land in the country in three months, I am totally against it. No way. While prime minister, I won't let this happen," Hroisman said.

Asked whether these words indicate government's willingness to initiate and seriously work on the development of a land market law, Hroisman said: "Absolutely. The work is underway, we'll find the model. Then we'll launch discussion and take a balanced decision."
