Valentine and Peter Kozlov, who still left the Blagoveshchensk 5 several years in the past, advised how they managed to escape from poverty.
At current, Russian citizens striving to get to retirement with the intellect: hoarding funds or getting home in a heat state someplace by the sea. In flip, the regular retiree with a profit of 12 thousand rubles practically nothing still left but to whilst absent their times at residence or at the cottage.
In the meantime, 40 thousand pensioners from Siberia and the Significantly East have previously still left for long lasting home in China.
In accordance to the migration plan of the state, if the variety of foreigners in the metropolis exceeds 10 thousand persons, the federal government introduces distinctive actions: the simplified registration of authentic estate, Television information in Russian, Russian is compulsory in stores and community transportation.
Comparable actions have been released in dozens of Chinese towns, such as Harbin, Hunchun, Heihe, in which since of the proximity to Russia settled a ton of our seniors.
I ponder what the Russian retired in the mid 2000-ies was the pioneer-emigrants in China. People of Blagoveshchensk and other border towns commenced to hire or offer the Russian flats and the funds to rented or bought housing in China. The rationale is really easy: Russian pension, which at residence was scarcely alive, counting just about every penny, in China turns to untold prosperity and permits you to reside, in what does not refusing.
Now Valentina Fedorovna and Peter G. Kozlov for 75 several years. From Blagoveshchensk pensioners moved to Berlin 5 several years in the past.
“Earlier, it was needed, “suggests Valentina. – All of our good friends and acquaintances have been previously there, and we all feared: Oh, how we overseas, Oh, but how to educate their language? Even though cackled, poverty to his throat approached. I at the time pension was 6500, my grandfather – 8000. For an condominium give me 4000 – housing in Blagoveshchensk predatory, cleaning soap-powder it is needed to acquire medications needed, for foodstuff was practically nothing, apparel by no means purchased that junk they put on. And good friends from China occur very well-fed, delighted, them the very same pension for all the lacking continue to stays. Nicely, we determined“.
To offer the condominium in his hometown Kozlov refused: you by no means know how lifestyle turns out the condominium is continue to desired. Broke up with the garage and the outdated “Lada”, have obtained for it of 200 thousand rubles, 200 thousand included in-legislation of Paul, using out a Lender mortgage (for a 12 months has paid out the funds for the hire of his “khrushchovkas”, move it to the Chinese for $300 for every thirty day period). In excess of 400 thousand rubles purchased in Heihe is also a a single-bed room condominium, a single and a 50 % situations a lot more – 65 sq. meters, two loos, two balconies, and most importantly, aspect by aspect with its neighbors in Blagoveshchensk.
“20 people of good friends reside close by, “suggests Kozlov. – A Russian Normal in the metropolis a ton, where ever you will go – everywhere you go our. It can be excellent there is another person to aid enter in. Go on outings jointly, buy a bus aimlessly. To Beijing, which is just not nevertheless arrived. But we and the Chinese are not shy, we are good friends“.
On Saturdays , Valentina sings in a metropolis choir. Many thanks to the classes figured out 300 kanji, grandfather, sitting down at residence, only 150.
Gantry astonished that the value of housing, in distinction to Russia virtually have not modified: how to pay out for heating is 70 rubles for every sq. meter, and pay out. Phone and trash removing – for 320 rubles a 12 months, World wide web – 2000 rubles for every 12 months. Electrical energy – a single and a 50 % rubles for every kilowatt.
“And we have that! – outraged , Valentina. For unveiled four rubles for every kilowatt, heating 1240 for every thirty day period, even though Stoke just 6 months, chilly h2o is 600 rubles for every man or woman. In China h2o is nine rubles for every ton, we with grandfather and its not selectable”.
Why on a single Lender of the Amur river, a single value, and on the other – the other, Valentina does not recognize. Implies: “In China, in all probability, do not steal“.
The charge of housing in their “Chinese” household price range is a paltry two per cent. And the price range is composed of Russian pension Valentina Fedorovna, which more than the several years has developed at the price of indexing for 2500 rubles and now quantities to 9000 rubles. Retirement of Peter G. spouse not contact, it is accrued in the discounts Lender at four% for every annum.
“Sure, and we my eyes ample, “suggests Kozlov. – Obtain nearly anything you want, devoid of on the lookout back again. My grandfather two satisfies day to day and I get to costume in a thirty day period, for a choir live performance I purchased with sequins. Grandchildren put on – sneakers, denims, listed here it is really inexpensive“.
The newspaper “Novye Izvestia” writes that in the course of the discussion on Valentina Fedorovna practically nothing shone: the female appeared like a regular Russian woman in a scarf and sweater.
“Sure, I was masked, “she laughs. – Unpleasant in entrance of persons to press, that will notify FIFA Chinese arrived. Numerous grow to be indignant and jealous that we are on the outdated age dwelling as younger as you vacation, go to places to eat. Why not to go? Meal for two was 100 rubles, in the cafe on the avenue and in 20 take in. In Russia, almost everything is accessible, in particular for pensioners“.
