Russian President Vladimir Putin has expanded the list of territories on which land cannot be owned by “foreigners” and “foreign legal entities”, adding coastal areas of occupied Crimea to the list. This decree was published on the official page of legal information.
The list includes 19 coastal regions of the occupied Crimea and Sevastopol, including the cities of Kerch, Feodosia, Sudak, Alushta, Yalta, Saki, and Yevpatoria.
The ban, however, does not apply to three regions of Crimea – Pervomaisky, Krasnogvardeisky, and Belogorsky, the regions with no access to the Azov and Black Seas. For the same reason, the Verkhnesadovsky village council in the Nakhimovsky district of Sevastopol was not included in the list.
