The Schlebusch family from South Africa’s Bloemfontein is going to be among first 50 Boer families to settle in Russia’s southwest. Like many other Boers, they are seeking political asylum in Russia. They say they are facing violent attacks and death threats at home stemming from government plans to expropriate their land.
Earlier this month, farmer Adi Schlebusch visited Russia’s farmbelt Stavropol Region. Schlebusch, whose grandfather was murdered at his farm, told RT that the land in South Africa “was never taken by whites from blacks with violence or in an unjust manner.” He explained that when Boers moved to South Africa in the 19th century, they tried to act in a way that was fair, to negotiate officially and to avoid conflict.
About 100,000 pilgrims led by the head of the Russian Orthodox Church have walked 21 kilometers in a solemn procession commemorating the 100th anniversary of the killing of the last Russian emperor Nicholas II and his family.
The procession covered the distance between the Yekaterinburg Church of All Saints, built on the place of the house where Romanovs were killed in 1918, and the Monastery in the Name of Saint Regal Martyrs which now marks the site of the Romanovs’ grave, or rather the site where their killers dumped the bodies in an abandoned mine.
One might say that National Socialist Germany was the country where animal rights and environmental issues had a proper impact on politics and legislation. By comparison, it can be seen that many states in the world still, almost 80 years later, have no form of legislation that protects animals from abuse. It is only in northern Europe where this has gone forward.
National Socialism soon developed an organic view of the world, unlike the ruling human-centered (anthropocentric) and geocentric world view, which we have mainly inherited from Judaism and Christianity.
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.
