President Putin has approved a law giving Russians free land in the country’s far east.

It’s one of a number of moves aimed at boosting the population and the economy in the vast remote region.

All Russians will be able to apply for up to one hectare of land, free of rent, tax or any other payment for five years – on condition they put the land to good use.
