Russian Germans returned from Germany to Russia

What does not suit their new homeland and why life without gas, Internet and roads like it more than the civilized Europe? [Video]

And with their families. And not in a rich Moscow or St. Petersburg, and in the … deaf village. What does not suit their new homeland and why life without gas, Internet and roads like it more than the civilized Europe?

— …The Germans, then? — Scratching his belly, asks our little man, volunteered to show where in the Voronezh farm Atamanovka settlers live. — What to look for something: there house, there is more more … They are normal, but … some strange: do not drink, do not smoke, do not eat meat …

"Bartered CIVILIZATION TO FREEDOM"

39-year-old Alexander Vinca outposts at work: one at the house fills with gravel mixer. For all construction signs coming increase in the area of an old house.

— Bought it as just moved here — he puts aside the shovel and shake denim overalls. — Look: land, garden, goats jump, vegetables from the kitchen garden, the pond three meters, kids and wife happy.

He proudly looks around the new home, and adds:

— Why are we in Russia have moved? It’s simple: here I am truly free!

…Statement Vinca little dumbfounded. Especially against the background of the now re-entered the fashion wailing Moscow liberals that the charms of true freedom — only in Europe. Well, in the U.S. a little bit. And the "inhumane Raska" — the opposite of the Western democracies. Indeed, a strange one this Vink …

— About us and about how local abnormal thinking — as if divining thoughts, continues Vink. — Just one day we found out for myself that the material values, which in Germany were certainly does not bring happiness. We have long wanted to live on the ground, dig a pond, trees to plant … But there it is unreal — acres of land for 100,000 euros passes! And then, even buying it all, you can not be there the owner!

— How is it?

— And that’s it! In Europe, you can not do anything without the permission of the authorities. The grass is not trimmed — a fine tree has grown more than the stipulated norms, — a fine … You see, here I am your home can alter the way I want, and there for it — fine! And the neighbors. They say, this is not Russia, we have children after eight in the evening on the streets do not cry. There are courts with neighbors because of such nonsense, all judged with all the … You want that kind of life?

— But here? — I ask, squinting. And the family Winky sighs heavily … Not everything is as rosy as they seemed at first.

"WHY RUSSIA NOT THE WAY IN GERMANY?"

On the table lies Winky Russian Constitution, the text of which Alexander had learned by heart already. Starting to talk about their rights, as he lifts his little book icon over his head. A little poobzhivshis, migrants from the course began to show a hitherto unseen in these parts civic activity, constantly referring to the Basic Law and the local authorities delivering a lot of headaches: a way to come to demand, the gas, the Internet … Once even conceived to remove the head of the village council — for "dereliction of duty".

Alexander pulls out a briefcase with documents showing a pile of papers.

— Individual entrepreneurship wanted to make — he threw up his hands. — Machinery from Germany brought, bought the sawmill, I’m a carpenter … It took a third phase sum, and began: 20,000 rubles requested! A line-out is she, what is there to pull something? Thought program to help entrepreneurs take advantage of, there’s 300,000 give. Chiefs me and say, here you get the money and pay for the third phase. That is, there will pay, pay there, that’s all 300000 and leave, but to work with what? Why is Russia not like in Germany? There are going to the officials and know exactly 5 minutes — and the problem is solved.

— And the election voted for whom? — Felt the tone of voice opposition Winky interested in Irene, received the passport of the Russian Federation. And the woman again surprises.

— For Putin, of course! — She says in a tone that implies the absurdity of the question. — It is visible that the government turns its face to the people, trying to do something for the people, but at the local level, all of this is destroyed … If it goes on — go back, probably back …

"SCHOOL LIKE DAUGHTER"

Atamanovka just arrived at the permanent five families from Germany. Local resettlement of such activity immediately benefited: the prices of semi-abandoned house suddenly went up by 10 times, and Irene Shmunk that appeared here this summer, izbenka already cost 95 thousand rubles. Irene also from our Soviet Germans: in 1994 she and her husband left Russian from Kazakhstan to Lower Saxony.

Like other German-weary Germans Irene lists hateful German rules: warnings from the authorities go after each other — the grass on the lawn higher than necessary (violating the accepted norms of aesthetics), PO Box 10 centimeters below the approved standard (the postman can work too hard), for vegetables took more than a quarter section (you can not, and that’s it!) … Do not remove — a fine.

— That’s all it is, and pushed for the move — she explains. — At first thought, it is only we the only ones who have grown up in the Soviet Union. And then on local channels one after another went stories about the Germans, who were born in Germany, but do not want to live in such a "right." Emigrate to the United States, Argentina,

— It’s a shame for local belief: fall, and I still have fresh herbs in the garden — picking tomatoes for a salad, says Olga Alexandrova. Once it with five children moved here from the suburbs and quickly found a common language with the Germans. — Local well as harvested and immediately all the digging. And we are before the frost out of the land eat.

At Olga also has a powerful argument in favor of the wilderness.

— Here are recently arrived there (in the Moscow region was home, which we hand), I go with a baby in broad daylight, and meet — three Uzbeks and undressed me with her eyes — she explains her seclusion. — This is what will happen in the evening, I think? And the children?
