In 2011, 25,000 Russian expats living abroad returned to Russia as part of the State Program on Voluntary Resettlement in Russia of Compatriots Living Abroad, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Tuesday.
He was speaking at the meeting of the heads of the Russian regions in Moscow. Lavrov also said that the number of regions which are taking part in the program, had reached 37.
The State program on Voluntary Resettlement in Russia of Compatriots Living Abroad was launched in June 2007 and is due to be completed in 2012.
I have talked about this in the past and I have also met a few Russians who used this program. I urge any Russian with a desire to come back to contact the nearest Russian Embassy about this program, no matter where you live!
It will end before you know it…
Windows to Russia!
