Only about two dozen residents of the annexed Crimea decided to get land in the Russian Khabarovsk Krai under the "Far Eastern hectare" program, the source reported, referring to the governor of the province Vyacheslav Shport.

“Far Eastern hectare" is of great interest to the media community. Thanks to the media, residents of our country are well aware of the possibility of obtaining land in the Far East. That is why we get many applications not only from Moscow and St. Petersburg, but also, for example, from the Republic of Crimea. Now we have got more than 20 of them," he said.

Reference, From February 2017, residents of the occupied Ukrainian peninsula can apply for land in the Far East of the Russian Federation in the framework of the "Far Eastern hectare" program.

The draft law suggests the possibility of signing a leasehold agreement or ownership after sixth year (for forest fund lands it can be after 15 years) of its use, if it was "used for any activities not prohibited by Russian law".
