La Cour européenne des droits de l’Homme contrainte d’explorer le grenier à blé ukrainien (Le Soir)

La Cour européenne des droits de l’Homme contrainte d’explorer le grenier à blé ukrainien (Le Soir) | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

(Marc Metdepenningen, Le Soir, 23/05/2018)

L’interdiction de vendre ou d’acheter des terres agricoles depuis la fin du communisme est une atteinte au droit à la propriété, estiment les juges de Strasbourg.

Un arrêt de la Cour européenne des droits de l’Homme (CEDH), rendu ce mardi, a contraint les juges basés à Strasbourg de se plonger dans la politique agricole de l’Ukraine. La CEDH reconnaît à l’Ukraine le droit de mettre en place des mesures restrictives pour protéger l’intérêt général, mais relève que le « moratoire sur les terres » de 1991 devait expirer en 2005. Cet arrêt est aussi une première pour la CEDH. Son analyse, sous l’angle des droits de l’Homme, rejoint celle du FMI - Fonds Monétaire International - qui, sous l’angle économique, a enjoint à l’Ukraine d’ouvrir son marché foncier pour assurer la liberté des échanges et favoriser les investissements dans un secteur dont le développement est freiné par le morcellement des terres et le recours à un matériel obsolète.

Black Sea Region: 2018/19 Outlook — BlackSeaGrain

Black Sea Region: 2018/19 Outlook — BlackSeaGrain | MED-Amin network | Scoop.it

The winter conditions favored crops all over the region. In particular, Ukrainian winter crops were rated the best in four years. But this year’s abnormally cold March induced a very late start and a slow pace of seeding early spring crops in the Black Sea region. Thus, taking all of the above factors into account, UkrAgroConsult predicts a 5-6% year-on-year decrease in the Black Sea grain crop due to lower harvests of wheat and barley, as well as decrease of the exports
