The issue of regulating land relations in the war and postwar periods is quite problematic in Ukraine. It is important to create such a legal framework that would meet the conditions and needs of martial law, would not contravene the current acts governing land issues and contribute to the preservation of the main wealth of the Ukrainian people – Ukrainian land. The urgency of solving land issues in wartime is reflected in the active regulatory activities in this area. An example of such a regulatory activity is the draft law of Ukraine № 7289 “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Concerning the Special Features of Regulation of Land Relations under Martial Law” of April 15, 2022. (hereinafter also – the draft law). As of 12.05.2022, this draft law was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada and on May 13, 2022 it was sent for signature to the President.
The draft law and its explanatory note were prepared in a hurry, so they have “blunders” that can generate different interpretations, and not always for the benefit of the people and the environment.
