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

LAND in Russia’s eastern wilderness is being offered to disillusioned British people for free – as long as they can survive the frigid cold and barren Siberian landscape for five years.


The sprawling plots, which are 2.5 acres in size, are located in an enormous region stretching from the Arctic Circle to the Chinese border, where winter temperatures can drop to a chilling -47 degrees celsius and population density currently stands at three people per square kilometre.

But its not all bad news for adventurous house-hunters. The far east of Russia is famed for its stunning natural beauty, with hundreds of miles of rolling hills, grass plains and soaring mountain ranges. Known as the land where ice meets fire, settlers can look forward to hiking the snow-covered slopes of active volcanos or relaxing in hot springs.

Summers are also long and comfortably warm, with 25 degree temperatures providing the perfect climate in which to explore the region’s dramatic landscapes.

President Vladimir Putin has approved the handouts in an attempt to boost the population and economy of the largely undeveloped region – and disgruntled British citizens are believed to be particularly sought after.

Russia’s Far East Development Minister Alexander Galushka said there has already been interest in the land opportunity with a number of applications having already been received.

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 – especially with a possibly disappointing Brexit result looming.

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. At that
