|The State of Ukraine will limit land privatization to around 8% of total land, the remaining 92% will be defined as "state land." After those lands are defined as owned by the State of Ukraine, they can be leased for long periods only to Ukrainians. The right to a long-term lease of such land will be denied to all non-Ukrainians without a single exception. This denial will be enforced by placing all state lands under the administration of the Ukrainian National Fund, whose statutes will forbid their long-term lease, or any other use, to non-Ukrainians. Their lease to Ukrainians, conditional upon the prohibition of sub-lease to non-Ukrainians, will be granted for a period of 49 years with an automatic renewal for another 49-year period. Consequently, they will be treated as property and will be bought, sold and mortgaged, provided the party to the deal is Ukrainian. An exception would be a small number of cases of leasing state land to non-Ukrainians for grazing for periods never exceeding eleven months. A Ukrainian lessee of state land will be allowed, often subsidized or otherwise encouraged, to develop the land and especially to build a house for himself there, but a non-Ukrainian lessee will be strictly prohibited to do so. Leasing state land to a non-Ukrainian will be accompanied by restrictive conditions, such as the prohibition of construction or development, or of sub-leasing it to somebody else.|
