Russia to Give Land in the East… but to Who?

Read More:

I suspect if Russia is serious about this project, without using political prisoners and massive concentration camps, the only hope is going to be opening up the region, or at least select parts of it, to non-Russians who are adventurous or desperate. As Europe further collapses I suspect there will be millions of European refugees looking for someplace to go.

Its either going to be that or the Chinese will eventually just take over Eastern Russia.

The goal of the “Find a Free Country Project” is to research, explore and find a safe and secure free country outside the USA, that is not too large, has a relatively open immigration policy, has a friendly business climate, has a non-intrusive government committed to freedom, and then move to it.

  1. Croatian Capitalist says:

    As much as I dislike the current mainland Chinese leadership (I don’t like the Taiwanese one either, but for different reasons), if I had to bet on it, I would put money on the Chinese (and the other East Asians to a lesser extent), the region is vastly under-populated as it is and young Russians are fleeing en mass to the European part of Russia, and even if millions of Europeans do flee Western Europe for Russia, I think that it would as well mostly be to places like Moscow, Sankt Petersburg and Sochi, not the Russian Far East.

    Anyway, while we are on the subject of Russia and since we are both avid book readers, this might be a good upcoming book:

      Well I don’t think the Chinese will cause a problem for Russia unless the Russians wholly fail to populate the place themselves to the point there is no law and order. The Chinese I have met are mostly looking to get away from China, not convert anyplace to China. In fact I cannot think of a single example of that happening. But if Russia fails to properly develop the necessary infrastructure and systems then I could see Chinese immigrants looking across the border for assistance.

      I personally would still like a little farm outside of Vladivostok. Just looks like a lovely place.

        I didn’t imply that there would be military action or anything like that, just that if the Russians don’t get their act together soon, the demographic trends and East Asian investment would make the region de facto Chinese/East Asian.

        As for the region surrounding Vladivostok, it does look nice, but even ignoring everything else that is negative about Russia, I don’t like the climate of the Vladivostok region, it is cold and windy (and the winds can be quite savage), so unless “global warming” finally starts being an actual fact, I wouldn’t consider moving to any other region apart from the one Sochi is located in.

    Yes, Quebec is probably more like it.

  3. Croatian Capitalist says:

    I have lost all hope for Russia as a country, when you look at the gigantic corruption (and I don’t just mean financial corruption, Russia also has an AIDS epidemic and other serious problems going on) in Russia, the mentality of the common people, and when you read about Russian history, Russia’s future seems to be very bleak.

  4. Croatian Capitalist says:

    Anyway, I am about halfway through the book I posted above, and so far it seems to generally good account on Putin and his Russia, but there is also interesting information about some other countries (like for example that in East Germany 1 in every 6,5 people was a government informant, what a sick society to live in that must have been).

  5. Croatian Capitalist says:

    This is yet another reason why I wouldn’t like to live in Russia, not only do they have a poor track record of caring for sensitive materials and equipment, but when something bad like this happens, they also try to cover it up for as long as possible, which leads to many people unnecessarily getting sick and/or dying.
