Are Russians ready to move to the Far East?

Speaking at a press conference in Moscow, the head of the Minsk region, Alexander Galushka, confirmed his intention to launch a mechanism this year to allocate 1 hectares of land to the Far East and resettlers. At the same time, according to the minister, this measure is only one of a whole system of state measures to attract the population to the Russian Far East.

Answering the question of EastRussia.ru about the many people wishing to move to the Far Eastern Federal District from other regions of the country, the head of the ministry specified that "As part of the development of this mechanism, it was decided to conduct a special sociological survey, which will show how much the Russians themselves are interested in moving to the Far East".

Speaking about other measures taken by the authorities to attract the population to the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, A.Galushka drew attention to Chukotka. “We have examples when the negative trend in the outflow of the population is refracted and turned into a positive one. This is the main task, - he said. - People should see themselves in the Far East, in the Far East, want to live there and connect their fate with it ”.

"Chukotka is a region with complex natural and climatic conditions for living. Last year, people went there - we have a migratory influx of people in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug. Practice is the criterion of truth. So this practice shows us why they went there. Thanks to the implementation of the projects, the efforts of the regional administration (GOKs started in 2013-2014) have created jobs with a good salary of more than 100 thousand rubles per month. The growth of industrial production was more than 140 percent. This is the biggest increase from all regions of Russia ", - A.Galushka has shared. He added that Chukotka is the first region in the Far East, where there is a positive dynamics of population growth.

The head of Minvostokrazvitia continued that, even if one looks at world practice, the answer is clear - people go first of all at work. Question number two - the social infrastructure, which is also "pulled up" in Chukotka.

"There is a chance for a person to realize himself in entrepreneurial activities or in the role of a skilled worker. When such an opportunity arises, economic activity also increases, and there is an influx of people ", - he summed up.

Recall that the proposal of the vice-premier, presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev on the free allocation of X hectar of land to the Far East and those wishing to move to the Far Eastern Federal District (1), which can be used for agriculture and business creation, on January, 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin positively reacted.
