“This is the main component of development of construction sector and housing construction, it is impossible to develop construction sector at all and resolve the housing issue without efficient, civilized settlement of land issues,” the president said, opening a meeting with members of the country’s government at the presidential countryside residence on Wednesday.
At the meeting in Novo-Ogarevo, President Putin has also demanded the government should make mortgage interest rates affordable.
