Government approves end of free property usage for Russia

The government has approved the cancellation of several resolutions from 1970-1982 that allowed Russians to use real estate in the Czech Republic free of charge, news site Deník N reported on Wednesday afternoon. This move opens up the possibility of demanding taxes and rent from Russia, even three years retroactively.

The government returned to the issue at their cabinet meeting on Wednesday, after the proposal had been tabled since it was last on their agenda two months ago.
