Subsequently, the process of land subdivision has started, and continues up till the present moment.

In post-soviet economy the consequence of the privatization policy shows that it is focused on the premises by themselves, but not the buildings and plots. In this article we highlight the spectrum of problems connected to this phenomenon, focusing on those related to management, financing, and renewal of territories.
