Krasnodar, 13 October. The land reserves of the Kuban Cossack Host have reportedly grown by more than five times.
This fact was announced during a regional meeting on the development of economic activity of Kuban Cossack communities held last week in the village of Rogovskaya, Timashevsk rayon.
The meeting was attended by Vice Governors Aleksandr Vlasov and Andrei Korobka, Cossack Atamans, municipal heads, executives of the regional Ministry of Agriculture and deputies of the Legislative Assembly, and heads of Cossack cooperatives.
“Over the past five years, the land reserves of the Kuban Cossack Host have grown to nearly 26,500 hectares. Since the beginning of 2021, the Cossacks have received over 1,700 hectares. We need to develop serious projects that may become economic drivers and solid financial basis of Cossack communities,” Vice Governor and Ataman of the Kuban Cossack Host Aleksandr Vlasv said.
According to Andrei Korobka (the vice governor responsible for the agricultural sector), presently there are 30 Cossack cooperatives in 22 municipalities of the Krasnodar region.
“Every hectare of land granted to Cossacks should work for right reasons and bring profit. To achieve this, the Cossacks should more actively cooperate with municipal bodies in charge of the agricultural sector to learn about the support programs,” Mr. Korobka stressed.
