Ukrainian prosecutors seek confiscation of over 4 hectares in Zakarpattia from Russian citizens
In the Zakarpattia region, land plots with a total area of 4.1 hectares owned by Russians were discovered. The authorities are currently trying to return them to the state through the courts
This was reported by the press service of the Zakarpattia (Transcarpathia) Regional Prosecutor's Office.
Prosecutors continue to identify and confiscate agricultural land from citizens of the Russian Federation in the Zakarpattia region.
This time, the Mukachevo District Prosecutor's Office, in cooperation with the Security Service Office in the Zakarpattia region, identified six more people who illegally own almost a dozen land plots with a total area of 4.1 hectares. They are located within the city of Mukachevo and three communities - Mukachevo, Verkhniy Koropets and Velyki Luchky.
"The current legislation stipulates that such lands inherited by foreigners or stateless persons are subject to alienation within a year. If the owners do not do so voluntarily, the prosecutor may use his representative powers and apply to the court for the forced confiscation of the land in the interests of the state," the prosecutors said.
The court has already opened proceedings on the prosecutors' claims. Some of the land has been seized. Work to return the plots to municipal ownership is ongoing.
