[Its sad to see whites leave, especially the Afrikaans speakers. But the other side of the coin is that it gives us a diaspora which could come in handy in the future. I think its good when whites from different white countries mix. Russia has got a lot of whites. Its hard to say exactly how many are “white”, but its definitely well over 50% and maybe as much as 75%. Its interesting that finding exact Russian info on “whites” as a race is very hard.
Anyway, the point is that these whites from SA will merge in with the Russians and it can only be good in terms of them getting to know each other. As groups of whites from South Africa spread across the world it will give us our own unique diaspora, and this can only be good for white-on-white relations. This will NOT be good for the blacks!!
The Russians used to be our enemies and they funded the ANC and others. They gave the blacks $1 billion in weaponry for the war in Angola. But I think that on the whole, these racial movements, even of these small groups, will work for us in South Africa in the long term. All the general mass movement of whites since WW2 and as a result of WW2 will in the long run be good for our race.
I don’t foresee large numbers of whites fleeing to Russia or anywhere else. I think the majority will stay in South Africa. The “game” is far from over.
As for Ramaphosa’s claims that he’s fixing the country: Its all hogwash and big talk. Its basically anti-white and that’s all there is to it. Its communism and nothing more. Its a rerun of Angola, Mozambique, Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) and Namibia (South West Africa). Jan]
Just weeks after we reported that white South African farmers, facing racial genocide, had begun seeking refuge – from the violent attacks and death threats of their own government’s policies – in friendly foreign nations such as Australia, RT reports the first 50 families of Boers, descendants of Dutch settlers in South Africa, could soon be moving to Russia to escape rising violence against farmers.
As a reminder, back in February, after literally years of scandal, abuse, and incompetence, South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma was finally forced to resign last week, and new President, Cyril Ramaphosa, was supposed to represent a positive, new chapter for South Africa.
However, as Simon Black wrote at the time, Ramaphosa addressed the nation’s parliament in Cape Town and made clear that his priority is to heal the divisions and injustice of the past, going all the way back to the original European colonists in the 1600s taking land from the indigenous tribes.
Ramaphosa called this “original sin”, and stated that he wants to see “the return of the land to the people from whom it was taken… to heal the divisions of the past.”
How does he plan on doing that?
Confiscation. Specifically– confiscation without compensation.
“The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans.”
Ramaphosa minced no words: he’s talking about taking land from white farmers and giving it to black South Africans.
And as RT reports, earlier this month, farmer Adi Schlebusch visited Russia’s farmbelt Stavropol Region.
Schlebusch, whose grandfather was murdered at his farm, told RT that the land in South Africa “was never taken by whites from blacks with violence or in an unjust manner.”
He explained that when Boers moved to South Africa in the 19th century, they tried to act in a way that was fair, to negotiate officially and to avoid conflict, but Ramaphosa’s new government refuses to negotiate.
Rights groups said the initiative incites violence – there were 74 farm murders and 638 attacks, primarily against white farmers, in 2016-17 in South Africa – and while the government doesn’t dispute the figures, officials say farmers are victims of crime like just other citizens of the country gripped by violence and that they are not targeted because they are white.
Schlebusch confirmed to RT that roughly 15,000 Boers are ready to leave their country and begin a new life in Russia.
“The reason I’m considering immigration is honestly because I see dark clouds hanging over our future. The reality is that we do fear for our lives. And the reality is that a white farmer is attacked every day in South Africa. My grandfather was murdered on this farm. The government is certainly responsible for creating that climate of antagonism towards white farmers.”
The farmer said he visited Russia with his family to explore the possibilities of resettling in the area. “I know the growth of agricultural production is immense in Russia. So, I think it’s the right time to buy in into agriculture in Russia. And I think there’s a lot of potential.”
Stavropol is ready to settle up to 50 Boer families, according to the region’s Deputy Commissioner for human rights Vladimir Poluboyarenko. A Russian delegation is due to come to South Africa to work out a more detailed resettlement plan with the Boer community.
