Russia knows a good prospect where there is one, and is offering free land and sanctuary to all White South African farmers, in some of Russia's most premium farmland. The land has been offered in the Vologda region between St. Petersburg and Moscow. 30 families have been accepted so far (in the last couple days) to lay the groundwork for the rest to arrive.
A couple years ago Putin opened up Eastern Siberia, offering 2.5 acres to anyone who wanted to settle there. This deal for WHITE south Africans who want to bring their farming skills to Russia is a much better deal. In my opinion (Jim Stone), this is a great strategic move by Putin.
