Occupation in full swing: Ukrainians in Crimea deprived of right to land ownership

Repressions in Crimea have reached the Ukrainian citizens disposing the lands of agricultural use. The occupation authorities are going to deprive them of the right to land use after August, Joinfo.ua reports referring to the local media.

It was announce by Marina Episheva, the director of the Consulting Center law company, at a press conference in Simferopol. She noted that in Russia, foreign nationals can not own agricultural land. At the same time, the Ukrainians on the peninsula have many plots, which are rented for up to 49 years, but according to the Russian law, such agreements need to be re-registered, and the Ukrainians can not own land.

Ukrainian citizens can realize the transaction for the disposal and sale of the agricultural land in Crimea only until August 1.

"Now for the rental agreement, one must have the Russian certificate of registration. In the transitional period we had problems with the registration of large farms, where the lease agreement was Ukrainian. People had to work, and we made advances and drew up contracts with the help of cadastral passports with further registration. But everything is strict now," said the lawyer.

Episheva noted that so far, none of the lands had been re-registered, and Ukrainian owners did not have complete information about the new order of ownership.

She said that since May 15, there had been designed a simplified mechanism of terminating long-term leases of land.
