Russia Today (RT) reports that a delegation of 30 South African farming families has arrived in Russias farm belt Stavropol Region with the group apparently saying it is facing violent attacks and death threats at home.
RT reports that according to the delegation, up to 15,000 farmers are planning to move to Russia. The group believes that government plans to expropriate their land will lead to increasing violence.
The report says that the farmers are prepared to contribute to Russias growing agricultural sector and each family is ready to bring up to $100,000 for leasing the land.
The report quotes It's a matter of life and death there are attacks on us. It's got to the point where the politicians are stirring up a wave of violence, Adi Slebus told the media. "The climate here [in the Stavropol region] is temperate, and this land is created by God for farming. All this is very attractive.

One of South Africa’s neighbors, I think it’s Zambia, has actually been encouraging white farmers to move there.
We need hard working farmers, give them visas
“South Africa is slowly but surely approaching the Mugabe model for its white farmers, and the white population generally. The only question is, why are they considering Russia rather than the US or Europe?”
Because there’s a lot of racists in the US who hate whites.
I would choose Australia over Russia.
It sure is a lot warmer.
They would be stupid to come here. They would be the “white racists from South Africa” as soon as they stepped off the plane.
It may be Bostwana. Unlike Zimbabwe and South Africa, Botswana realized that their economy would collapse if they drove out the white population.
Good. All Whites need to get out of that $hithole. Let it become the savage hellhole it was before Whitey arrived and tried in vain to teach them a little civilization. They will go back to killing each other and walking around with bones in their noses, all the while blaming their self-induced failures on Whitey.
Ask me what I think.
Land-wise, just about everything of a productive nature has been bought and owned in Australia and New Zealand.
You can’t say that for Russia. I would make a guess that they’ve just scratched the surface....maybe developed 30-percent of the land that exists.
I see this as a plus-plus. These South African-turned-Russian farmers just want a second chance with no one coming to threaten them. If you put 15,000 to work in the various regions with open land....they have more than enough to feed everyone in Russia, and probably Europe as well.
Why isn’t the USA taking in these refugees?
I'm sure if this story were told by CNN, the title would have been "Racist, bigoted whites leave the tolerant, multicultural paradise of South Africa."
God bless them I hope they all make it to safety.
I wish they would come here.....but good for Russia....
So many things in Australia that can kill you.
>>The only question is, why are they considering Russia rather than the US
Because demographics show that we are moving in the same direction as SA.
my mother (89) said her father was the greatest farmer in their area, he had moved from a Tennessee Valley Project that took their land so they went to Texas. All the farmers followed his lead and questioned him on what and when to plant. All the kids left the farm and no one farms any longer - I often think of there were how many 100’s or 1000 years of farming experience that is gone in two generations.
