a Global financial bigwigs do not hide their desire to obtain ownership of the vast Ukrainian lands. Cheaply. In the agricultural business are interested and Ukrainian oligarchs. After all, the world is experiencing an increasing shortage of food. But to save the Ukrainian black earth and leave it in the hands of those who processes it, it will be difficult.

The world’s financial movers and shakers, including those who are sitting at the International monetary Fund, do not hide their desire to obtain ownership of the vast Ukrainian lands. Their logic is simple: land is cheap, labour is even cheaper, the harvest is great and guaranteed. And the world is experiencing an increasing food deficit, and this trend is not going anywhere.

Now up to 75% of the world grain trade controlled by four multinational companies. Three head of the United States, and one Dutch. Interest in the most fertile part of the European continent showed and the Arab countries, companies from South-East Asia and China. This suggests that to save the Ukrainian black earth and leave it in the hands of those who processes it be difficult.

According to official data, the Food and agriculture organization of the United Nations, the world hunger has increased for the third year in a row. When in 2010 after the economic crisis, the cost of grain on the world market doubled in just a few months, more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East riots started.

Unlike Russia, which thanks to the wisdom of the first post-Soviet President Boris Yeltsin, managed to maintain full control over its own production and natural resources, Ukraine believed the promises of the IMF, the US and the EU on unconditional assistance, embarked on a different path.

It soon became clear that this decision was erroneous. The orange revolution (2004 — 2005) exposed the uncertainty of the future of Ukraine. That part of it which was wealthy urban residents, advocated an Alliance with the West. Most of those who fed almost the entire country and abroad, understood that the sale of land to foreigners will turn them into a modern slave power.

Among other things, Moscow did not want to abandon the impact on the official Kiev, and the authorities in Ukraine changed too often. Washington and Brussels took the former Soviet republics that gained independence, as the gateway to the first of the strictly guarded hunting grounds, where now everything is possible, starting with the political agitation until the netting of financial dependence. Cheap fertile land and labor, forced to work for a salary that is ten times smaller than in the West, saw the opportunity to do “good business” with a strong element of ideological influence. And all this directly on Russia’s borders.

The current head of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky not able to overcome even the domestic oligarchs. Due to this social class he came to power. After his arrival the situation in the Crimea and in the South-East of the country has not changed. On the fragile truce and the periodic exchanges of prisoners is not gone.

As writes portal “national correspondent” Sergey Kuznetsov, the cost of grain production in the Ukrainian black earth, given the higher yields and lower costs for labor of the peasants, four times lower than the European average. And the cost of selling Ukrainian land per hectare in eight — ten times lower than in member countries of the European Union.

It is not surprising that in the agricultural business are interested and Ukrainian oligarchs. The current low price of arable land in a situation when food becomes increasingly strategic importance, may in the near future significantly increase.

Over it all looms the uncertainty caused by the pandemic coronavirus. The economic crisis caused by this plague, threatens to take us back years. People who are now in quarantine around the world, are losing patience. A do not miss opportunities to escape from large urban centers. It increases the significance of the Ukrainian village. The second largest European country with almost 45 millions of citizens and vast natural wealth takes on an entirely new political, economic and, most importantly, food-production role. First of all, for Europe. In short, the Ukrainians were the first trump card, which was not there before: now others depend on them.
