Russian President Boris Yeltsin yesterday returned to parliament a new land code approved by both houses. His reason: It blocks the creation of a free market. The Kremlin said Yeltsin had written to the heads of both chambers explaining that he would not sign the code because it does not include the changes he had called for, namely, liberalization of land sale. The latest draft, approved by the State Duma and the Federation Council, was drawn up after Yeltsin and the parliament agreed to revise an earlier version that similarly restricted the free sale of land.
