I watched this Nomad Capitalist video today. A pretty good case for having a plan B, his discussion caters to the wealthy. That said, one nugget I found particularly interesting: Get your 2nd residence going now. Papers etc.

When I was in colombia 3 years back, I actually considered buying a little condo and getting my residency. If I hit a certain threshold value with my purchase, I would receive citizenship as long as I returned once / year over 5 years (something that is difficult now).

But there are other ways to establishing residency. Perhaps enrolling in a course in an educational institution there, simply applying for a work permit or to emigrate, investment visas etc.

For all the talk of moving (which I fully support), we should also be thinking of first steps to establish grounds for a move. Ultimately, it's just as easy to go somewhere and make your case from that country, but you can also begin your case from home.

I recently got my residency approved for Mexico and will be heading there in the next 1.5 months or so to get my actual card. My job is forcing me to vaxx or 'voluntarily separate' so I'll be fired here soon and will take my savings and plan to spend a solid 6+ months down there exploring.

I'm looking at what's coming to a lot of western countries and don't want to be caught with my pants down so I decided to take action - I really got tired of being complacent/in an analysis paralysis mode and got off my ass to make something happen. I have a small network of people there that I will hook up with to help ease the transition.

Here is an interesting Russian YouTube channel (He speaks English). He does live walking tours around Russia. His content is varied, but he attends many classical music concerts and visits historical sites. He gives a good "man on the ground" perspective if someone wonders what it is like to live there.

A few things I have noticed:

1) Almost everyone is white. Reminds me of America in the 1970s.

2) There are very few obese people out and about.

3) The public libraries are very clean and orderly, even in the big cities.

Thanks PaulC for that video but the famous Bald and Bankrupt (Ben) makes some great videos about Russia as well and you can see the first 3 things you mentioned in his videos as well. Also 4th point is that unlike most US Cities with large homeless and crackhead populations and rising crimerate almost none of that is present in Russia or UA for that matter (Ben has posted plenty of videos of other Soviet Countries as well).

LOL Russia. You should check out Russia thread in Coronavirus forum... things are escalating starting this summer.
Just the true colors coming out.
There's China-level Covid stuff being deployed right now.
Everyone being white....yeah gopniks are white too and they will piss by your front door. Not safe from crime there, no right to self-defense (will go down for murder) and now major corona restrictions, QR codes starting all over and cops beating grandmas without a QR code.
I recommend looking elsewhere.
Beware of people who don't speak Russian or barely learned it posting wrong info here, it cracks me up to read what's posted about Russia, one got to own major pink eyeglasses not to see what's going on.
I grew up there, strange that people compare to American cities...normal Americans live in the suburbs or rural...cities are just dumps... it's a different structure, simply. It's like people find the worst dump in the middle of Detroit and compare to some Russian town, ridiculous... compare average American town to Russian town, American town is like Heaven on Earth compared to those ghettos in Russia.
Russia has hardcore cities and towns which make Detroit look pretty.
Russians all drool over any EU/US/NZ/AU/CA residency.
People stop drinking Kool-aid.... some info out there is from paid by government folk.
Russia is losing specialists and educated people at a high rate for decades now.
Mostly, government treat you like cattle in Russia.
No comparison with America, where they think twice and people are armed.

If you want Eastern European Christian country and can get into Poland: it's much better. Can't even compare.
Much of Christian Balkans are also much better, a lot more free there too and much better climate.
Belarus is better, though not as good as the above options.
But yeah keep reading fairy tales about Russia... LOL!
