More than three quarters (77%) of Ukrainians are convinced that the decision to introduce an agricultural land market in Ukraine should be made at an all-Ukrainian referendum, according to the results of a survey conducted by the sociological group Rating on April 23-27, 2021.
Some 64% of those who would take part in such a referendum and decide on the answer would vote against the introduction of a market for agricultural land in Ukraine, 36% would support this initiative.
Some 79% of respondents are against granting foreigners the right to buy agricultural land in Ukraine. Only 15% support this initiative.
At the same time, two-thirds of the respondents know about the opening of the agricultural land market from July 1, 2021 (46% have heard a lot about it, 32% have heard something), and 22% do not know anything behind this. The latter are more among young respondents, city residents and those who do not have a land share.
A third of the respondents believe that the President and the Verkhovna Rada have the greatest influence on the decision to introduce a market for the circulation of agricultural land. Only 12% believe that this decision was influenced by the government of the country.
