VLADIVOSTOK, January 29. /TASS/. The regulatory framework for the free provision of 1 hectare of land to residents of Russia’s Far East will be prepared based on amending the Russian legislation at the beginning of 2016, Russian Deputy Prime Minister, presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District YuryTrutnev told the media on Thursday during a visit to Primorsky Krai.
He said it would be not easy to implement this project of land provision to the local population and those who are willing to move there.
"To implement this initiative, it is necessary to remove all bureaucratic obstacles so that people can get the land as quickly as possible," said Trutnev. "The necessary amendments are likely to be introduced in the first quarter of 2016." "It is important to establish a system for the land allocation management. In some territories, this process may become massive. In this case, the regional authorities will have to act quickly and transparently," said the deputy prime minister.
He said that all the Far East residents will get an equal opportunity to obtain land plots for agriculture, forestry or other activity.
On January 19, Trutnev proposed to Russian President Vladimir Putin to consider the idea of free allocation of one hectare of land to each resident of the Far East and to those who are ready to move to the region. According to the envoy, 614 million hectares of different category of land are currently in state ownership in the Far East. The Russian president has approved the idea in general.
