Refugees from Crimea were given land plots in Zakarpattia region, southwestern Ukraine, press-service of State Agency of Land Resources reported.

31 land plots have already been allocated in Velikobereznyan, Vinogradov and Mukachev regions.

According to the statement of State Agency of Land Resources, land may be allocated gratis to refugees, who moved from the Crimea.

Since Crimean annexation in March, around 7,000 Crimeans have left the peninsula for mainland Ukraine. Some of them left for political reason, while others for economic ones. About a half of the refugees are entrepreneurs who are unable to continue their work because of reasons including the refusal to extend the lease on their places of business.
