It says the bill was signed by Razumkov on April 13.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on March 31, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the draft law to amend certain legislative acts of Ukraine related to farmland sale (No. 2178-10). The document was backed by 259 MPs. It is needed to secure a new loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

President Volodymyr Zelensky said on March 27 that the authorities had agreed with the IMF that following the adoption of two important laws – on banking regulation and on the launch of the farmland market, Ukraine would get up to US$2 billion from the Fund within about 15 days.

At a special meeting on April 13, Ukraine's parliament unlocked the signing of the farmland sale bill by voting down 13 draft resolutions blocking its enactment.
