1 hectare is 'sprawling'

Sure in Temperate Europe [or even better Mediterranean Europe assuming good water management] that's totally sufficient to raise a family on, but I don't know about Siberia... Maybe the part the article lists as 'near the Chinese Border' would be viable?

Express.co.uk does not list a source; in the official document (in Russian) I found only (Russian) citizens mentioned, curious why "disillusioned Brits" would be candidates.

It's definitely colder climate than most of the US, but not necessarily Canada; for example, in Habarovsk temperatures are similar to Ottawa.
Some of the listed regions actually constitute southmost Russia.
Kamchatka is not unlike mid-to-southern Alaska. Magadan may be in subarctic climate zone, but its latitude is a bit to the South of St Petersburg and Helsinki, and the climate is mild and only a little cooler.

None of these is Siberia, except Saha (that's where, in its capital Yakutsk, -40 is the average low temperature in December and January)

There have been other centralized efforts to stimulate development of Russian Far East; in Amur region, there has been recently a spaceport built, and the first rocket was launched just last month.
 
What could go wrong in a swell place like "The Evil Eye"? Or with this tiny ad?
