Why Aussies would love Altai. Some of the shots, especially on the new highway, I couldn't have found a difference between those and my drives on mountain roads in Western Washington or Oregon. There is also an uncanny similarity between some places in Altai and Wyoming. Joash also explains the issue of fresh water when compares Altai (or most of Russia, for that matter) with Australia and their creek at their farm there.
A number of American and Canadian families (75 people in all) contacted RT with request for help recently in obtaining Russian citizenship. RT already made a wonderful pitch (in Russian).
«Хотим жить в стране, поддерживающей традиционные ценности»: семьи из США и Канады попросили российское гражданство
Translation: "We want to live in the country which supports traditional values": families from the US and Canada asked for Russian citizenship.
Father Joseph Gleason, I once told about him, is one of those who helps American and Canadians to get in. He and his family of 10 are also a great gift to Russia.
P.S. One day you will have Aussies playing hockey.
