Actually, religions are in big favor now in Russia, so- welcome back!

Not the freaky ones, like newborn Christians or Pedophiles churches, but the old ones, going in history for centuries.

Mennonites came to Russia during Catherine the Great, and they always were a good addition to Russian society. There is plenty of land, and empty old villages, including the ancestral German villages along Volga.

There are great programs for agriculture development, benefits in buying machinery, – no wonder agriculture is booming.
