Here’s a link to a detailed article referring to plans for totally ‘capitalising’ Ukrane’s farmland. It’s been on the table for some time – I’ve read about it before this year from Oakland Institute but this one has more up to date news. They are pushing for the big agro companies to own it all and also to introduce GM seeds, which although they already have some is supposed to be banned currently. Ukraine’s farmland is about one third of Europe’s total and this plan is out of favour of the majority of Ukranians.
Depending on the victor of this war, the West or Russia, the outcome will be very different.
For what it’s worth here’s comment from an Indian. No doubt the majority of citizens of former colonies would agree with her. Unfortunately I don’t suppose they are getting a voice on mainstream media.

the link above does not connect.
Thanks for bringing this up DJP – I, too, prefer the PDF. Isn’t it possible to have both options?
Yes, I agree. What do you think would be the best way of spreading the idea? Could it be to request the SS editorial committee to pass on details of Countercurrents and encourage all those submitting articles to consider also sending them to CC? This forum seems to have hardly any of the regular SS writers so i don’t imagine our short conversation will reach many of them.
I read StephenShenfield’s article on global warming yesterday on Countercurrents. Excellent.
Some interesting statistics on Ukraine’s economic potential – and reasons why they haven’t managed to reach this potential:
This is a better link.
Just read another one worthy of a read on this subject:
Jonathan Cook (ex-Guardian) – another potential intervewee?
You’re right – it doesn’t mean that we/they agree on everything, but truth tellers are few and far it seems. So much of our daily news is contaminated by journalists answering the demands of their masters. A breath of fresh air is good for all.
