1. Breaking news: Russian Government creates a program for obtaining free land in the Russian Federation, similar to the "Far East Hectare": https://ecominded.net/land-giveaway-russia
It will allow one to register ownership of land plots remotely, without unnecessary bureaucratic procedures.
All you got to do to stake a claim is find open public land, and then you got to mark it (online) and register with the government. Just like wild American west in the old days... :)
