The Boers are coming to Russia?

The Boers, descendants of the Dutch settlers of Africa, who are studying the possibility of re-deployment to Russia, may move to the North Caucasus. The Komsomol Prada informs that in the beginning of July the delegation is expected to visit the chapter with Jan Andrian Slebus. They want to communicate with the administration, the local population, politicians and religious figures. If approved by the authorities, over 15,000 Boers from the Republic of South Africa can move to the Stavropol Territory. If successful, other Boers may settle in the Crimea, the Krasnodar Territory and the republics of the NCFD.

White made up about 20% of the population of South Africa, but in recent decades, their number is declining due to low birth rate and migration from the country. After losing power, White became a persecuted minority: over the past 14 years, more than 3,000 farmers were killed, an average of one dead white farmer a day. Russia is interested in the influx of highly skilled migrants, since the area of ​​unused farmland is millions of hectares. On the other hand, it is difficult to say how this program is realizable, since even Russian and Russian-speaking immigrants experience enormous difficulties in obtaining a residence permit, a temporary residence permit and citizenship. Some ethnic Russians, sometimes even born in the RSFSR, for years seize the thresholds of the migration service in order to obtain citizenship. This visit allows us to hope that the situation will improve.
