I speak all the time about Westerners who are moving to Russia. Here is one such wonderful and charming girl from Australia who moved to Novosibirsk couple years or so ago and wants to stay in Russia. Here is adorable Sabrina doing her shopping (and you guessed it--in Auchan) together with her brother:
We still don't know real numbers of such people moving to Russia but Maria Zakharova IS ON record during one of her briefings recently saying that she personally is besieged by inquiries about and requests for allowing to move to Russia from people from the US, UK, EU and, as this video shows, Australia. Well, Boers are already settling in Buryatia. The girls are adorable and learned Russian in...half-a-year just by watching Russian cartoons.
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
The creek will turn into the river.
