Home sweet home? Putin offering disillusioned Britons FREE LAND to resettle in Russia

Home sweet home? Putin offering disillusioned Britons FREE LAND to resettle in Russia, by Joey Millar. The Russians desperately need people to inhabit their far east, and are offering a hectare (100m by 100m) of land for free.

Mr Putin is looking for 300 people to take up land in the unpopulated region, which could offer a fresh start for those disillusioned with life in Britain.

Those hoping for a life of luxury, however, need not apply. The president highlighted the region’s “minimal infrastructure” while describing the project this week, however those willing to make the 5000 mile journey east will be rewarded by a free football pitch-sized homestead on which they will be encouraged to start a farm or business.

There is a catch, however: British people must last five years before they will take full control of their new home.

Out in the great outdoors, close to nature. Perfect for greenies.
