Vinnytsia Regional Council planned to transfer two and a half hectares of land to the regional center without any conditions or reservations. However, the proposal to give this land for the construction of housing for the military was rejected

The Vinnytsia Regional Council recently planned to transfer two and a half hectares of land to the regional center without any conditions or reservations. However, when the proposal to give this land for the construction of housing for the military was put to the vote, the deputies failed to vote. Regional council deputy Yevhen Shapovalov spoke about the situation in a commentary to UNN.

Details

According to Shapovalov, the story of the transfer or redistribution of almost 2.5 hectares of land belonging to the Vinoblagrolis municipal enterprise established by the regional council has been going on since the previous convocation of the regional council. And recently, the issue of transferring these lands to Vinnytsia was put to a vote.

The deputy explained that the region would not receive any preferences from this transfer.

"2.5 hectares of land in the city, although on the outskirts, have some value. Given that after the personal income tax from the military will go to the state budget, even what we expected, for example, to be used to purchase drones... That is, the new distribution poses a threat to the filling of the regional budget and its implementation by 100%, this risk exists and was announced by the director of the Department of Finance of the regional state administration at the session. In this situation, it would be more logical to look for some financial compensation for this area and sell it to the Vinnytsia City Council or to anyone else. It would be logical," the deputy believes.

According to Shapovalov, he would not even mind the free transfer of these lands to the regional center, however, provided that housing for the military and their families, as well as veterans and families of fallen heroes, is built on them. Shapovalov submitted this proposal to the regional council along with another colleague. However, the deputies did not support this initiative.

"The majority of the session hall did not agree with this, and it was an unpleasant surprise for me," Shapovalov says.

We add

The majority in the Vinnytsia Regional Council was formed by Groysman's Ukrainian Strategy, and as Shapovalov notes, this political force voiced in the local council that the main principles of their work are security and defense, sustainability and care. The same principles are allegedly laid down in the work of the interregional humanitarian headquarters headed by Volodymyr Groysman and created on the initiatives of the regional and city councils (the majority in both belongs to Groysman's Ukrainian Strategy).

"I have voiced it to my colleagues, I will voice it to you. For example, this volunteer party organization, the Interregional Humanitarian Headquarters, headed by Groysman, they came up with the right initiative that the priorities in the budget are security and defense. And that they care about the military. But when you put forward this initiative on land for the military, for some reason they don't vote. There is some kind of cognitive dissonance," the MP noted.

So far, members of the Vinnytsia Regional Council have not supported the transfer of the land to Vinnytsia at all. However, they can still return to this issue.

In addition, as Shapovalov noted, the public cadastral map is closed during martial law, and therefore even local council members cannot always be sure which lands are being voted on. But despite this, deputies still sometimes make decisions based on the number of the land plot alone.
