Steven Seagal Is Interested In The Far Eastern Hectare In Buryatia

Hollywood actor and director Steven Seagal, during a visit to the Republic of Buryatia, said that he was interested in the program "far Eastern hectare," which can be obtained a land plot, according to the press service of the government of Buryatia on Monday following a press conference of the actor.

Steven Seagal flew to Buryatia on July 21 to visit lake Baikal, Ivolginsky Datsan, and get acquainted with the culture and traditions of the old believers.

"Steven Seagal does not exclude his participation in the "far Eastern hectare." The Hollywood star would like to train children in martial arts in Buryatia and protect lake Baikal, " the message reads.

During the implementation of the "far Eastern hectare" program, 2.1 thousand people received land plots in Buryatia, and 3.2 thousand people received land plots in the Trans-Baikal territory. Most often, the land is taken for individual housing construction. In Transbaikalia, the high activity of applying for the far Eastern hectare is explained by the fact that there is no buffer zone around Chita, the capital of the region, closed from the provision of land plots. Land can be taken in a half-hour drive from the center of Chita. Work is underway to reduce the buffer zone around the capital of Buryatia, Ulan-Ude.

On November 3, 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on the transition of the Republic of Buryatia and the Trans-Baikal territory from the Siberian to the far Eastern Federal district. Since August 1, 2019, these regions have started to provide land under the "far Eastern hectare" program - local residents can get plots in 42 days from the moment of filing an application, while they are exempt from land tax for five years. Since February 1, 2020, all residents of the far Eastern Federal district have received the right to issue a land plot in Buryatia or Transbaikalia for free, and from August 1, 2020, residents of the other regions of Russia and compatriots living abroad will receive the right.
