The article is devoted to the problems of hostile takeovers in the agrarian sector of Ukrainian economy. The purpose of the study is to analyze the causes of raiding and to develop provisions on effective state mechanisms to overcome this negative phenomenon. The author pays special attention to the solutions that will help agrarians to withstand raiding. Investigating the factors of raiding, there was the lack of a single state register of common agricultural land. According to the author, farmer`s non-acquaintance as well as the lack of information connections between different state bodies creates a situation in which farmers are not able to protect their own household. Consequently, further scientific developments should relate to the aspect on agricultural land`s data interchange. No less important reason for raiding is the lack of a free land market and a moratorium on the sale of agricultural land. However, the author does not agree that cancellation of land moratorium will be a sufficient measure, because without proper legal and informational support, farmers can lose land due to the lack of conditions for the launch of a free land market. Of course, institutional changes are also important, that is, the launch and functioning of a body that will monitor the preservation of quality, quantity and use of land for their intended purpose. The author observes that it is necessary to define the meaning of the concept of "raidering" applying it into legislative. However, the above-mentioned measures will only be effective if corruption in state authorities, including in courts and law enforcement agencies will be defeated.
