    Free Land in Russia for Families and Churches

    Global Orthodox ^ | 9/17/21 Want to get away from Clownworld? Here you go!
    A government-sponsored program, One Hectare in Siberia, provides free distribution of real estate, about 2.5 acres, to anyone who would put it to use, and after a five year period the land is converted into one’s private property . . .


    Nearly 100,000 lots have already been distributed through the One Hectare in Siberia program. More to come.

    That's way, WAY over on the southeast side, around where northern Florida would be if it were the U.S. I'm guessing the climate is fairly temperate compared to more-northern parts of Russia. They've got a big electrified railway line running through there that can carry heavy freight, and the Sea of Japan is only 2-3 hours away. I know Russia's making as much of an effort as it can to rebuild itself after the breakup of the USSR. Could be part of a larger industrialization plan.

    I have heard of this or similar schemes in Siberia for around 10 years now. Russia doesn't have the best public image so that would be one reason they aren't attracting too many people. Not too many people would want that kind of isolation now either although they would also not be the type of people they would want to attract either.

    I'm also not sure if the 2.47 acres is enough land to be self-sustainable, it would depend on the type of soil, the terrain, access to water and how cold the winters get (as it would determine how much wood/how many trees one needs to chop for heating and thus how much land one has to allocate to growing that wood).

    I was told the rough rule of thumb is one needs about ~6 acres to be self-sustaining with the bulk of the land dedicated to growing wood for heating and remaining to permaculture/food forest.

    According to this site: https://thehomesteadinghippy.com/how...lf-sufficient/ "Most off-grid properties will require around 10 cords of firewood each year. A minimum of 5 acres should supply enough."

    I guess you could trade some of your produce for fire wood or just go out into the forest and attain it. You would also have to know what the climate is like, would it be so cold you can't grow anything over winter? My only mental image of Siberia is Gulags and boiled potato's. If so you better know how to preserve food. Same with that firewood you better be able to store it somewhere.

    I'm not sure how off the grid this Siberian area would be though, I think they know most modern people wouldn't last long with nothing around them.

    I saw a similar deal in a town in Italy they want people desperately but they want them under a certain age and they want craftsmen and people who will start a business of some sort. So they aren't so desperate as to just take anyone or some older person who is cashed up. Same with parts of America and other places who offer similar deals.

    Just had a quick look at this Russia gives away one hectare of farmland and forest to its citizens (siberiantimes.com) According to the article you have to be a Russian citizen first.

    Russian Citizenship: The Easiest Passport to Get in the World - Expatriant - According to this you need to pass a test in the language which rules me out because I'm useless at foreign languages.

    Personally I'd want something that's a bit better connected to the outside world, but I'd say well done to anyone that actually goes ahead with it.

    Not too many people would want that kind of isolation now either although they would also not be the type of people they would want to attract either.
    I have heard stories about a lot of people who escape to isolated parts of the world (Alaska or working at the south pole) are doing so to hide from pasts they don't want to talk about.
    Men are becoming MGTOW by the millions, most without ever having heard the term. They are simply doing what all living organisms finding themselves in a toxic environment do. They adapt to it or remove themselves from it. Females are not liking either the adaptations or the removal.

    Re: Free Land in Russia for Families and Churches

    In some of the forgotten villages of the former USSR, where a few older people still remain, there is electrical service, and there’s a government truck that shows up once a week stocked with grocery items and (very minimal) pension checks. In this new Siberian town, that sort of “infrastructure” might eliminate or at least reduce the need for self-sufficiency on too-small of an acreage.

    There’d also be a need for a police force of some sort, health & dental care, and all that. And a way to travel out of town and get back, so that would mean roadways and bus service or at least passenger-train service. I guess that’s infrastructure as well.

    Anyway... Russia’s a communist/oligarch nation; they’re supposed to be experts at central planning according to the average addle-headed liberal who thinks Cuba and Venezuela are shining stars of civilization. Okay then, let’s see them get to work and pull it off.

    Not holding my breath, though. Not because the infrastructure can’t be set in place, but because I don’t think the money’s there for it, and even if it were, the execution of the project would just get tied up in typical Russian bureaucracy, and so it’d be riddled with corruption and half-assery.
