- Russia is enormous and has a lot of space to use for farming
White South African farmers recently turned to Russia to ask if the country would take them in.
They asked Russia to "take their money" and help them escape from land expropriation and farm murders.
The farmers travelled to Russia in what they call 'desperation'. It is believed most farmers are from the Free State province.
Russia is the world's largest country and has more than enough space to accommodate the farmers.
The Citizen reports that Russia is seriously considering welcoming the 15 000 farmers into its lands.
The farmers will be able to improve its agricultural industry most impressively.
It is believed the farmers offered to invest their savings (more than R1.3 million per family) in Russia and will even offer English lessons.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Russia plans to welcome 30 families at first, and more families will follow after they have been established.
