I’ve seen this video (in french): https://youtu.be/HCtlfGVVVBE
My wife and myself are reluctant to go live there, not because of the harsh condition (we love snow and cold) but because we love the political stability and freedom in switzerland. We don’t want to go all in in a remote area whose survival depends on an authoritarian state, if they decide to cut electricity or coal supply in the winter you are dead, no roads, only helicopters and state owned railways and -50°C.
Anyways, in the video he talks about having a kid on russian soil. That would make the kid russian and the parents too. Is this true? If so, do you think it would be sensible to have my next kid while in vacation to Moscow to obtain the nationality (as a backup if the west falls) and invest in dirt cheap real estate in Vorkouta or other realy cheap arctic areas? The goal would be to not loose money for a few years with rent, then making money when the arctic develops and the prices skyrocket. That would also make a nice secondary residence when switzerland is too hot for my likings.
What do you think?
