111,000 recipients. Let us take a closer look: 14% expressed their desire, and only 100,000 acted on it. Did we reach our goal? I do not know yet! But we have not set any criteria. And what should the result be? 1 million? 2 million? 3 million? If we take historical examples of global reforms, like the Stolypin reforms, 3 million were relocated beyond the Urals. Of them, according to various estimates, from 17 to 25 percent went back, because the living conditions were terrible! And that was in czarist Russia, when owning a stove, a hut, and a horse was already considered good living standards. And what of our spoiled kids today? They give up the Internet, communications, heat, a warm toilet, and so on, to come close to the land – and of course they go back! The number of refusals that exist today is quite large, and we need to pay attention to this — Sergey Karginov, First Deputy Chairman of the Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation on Development of Far East and Arctic.
The five-year period is coming to an end for hundreds of hectares, and we are already moving into the mode of registering ownership or full-fledged lease of these land plots. After five years, we can see that the proper registration of plots is actually an order lower than the contracts that come out for re-registration. If we look at the reasons for such refusals, one of the main ones is the loss of interest in the hectare. It is the problem of permitted usage, the lack of infrastructure. And we understand that in the Far East, given the distance and the specifics of the land, the cost of building infrastructure is prohibitive. It is the lack of comfortable financial instruments to implement on this hectare the original intentions that gets in the way — Evgeniy Chekin, Chairman of the Government of of Kamchatka Territory.
