According to the Ukrainian constitution, every citizen is entitled to own a piece of land. The process through which to claim land is a basic one. All a person has to do is find a piece that isnâ€™t being used and ask the government to give it to them. Once this request is submitted the government has 30 days to make a decision. While this process might be plausible in rural areas of the country, in popular places the law is highly disregarded and abused.
