Leave it to an eastern country to promote a propaganda video that would make even President Joe Biden’s regime blush.
The Russian Embassy in Spain tweeted out a video last Friday that has since gone viral on other Twitter accounts after making the rounds for how satirical it seems to some and how “unwoke” it seems to others — almost intentionally.
It’s really difficult to tell who created the video, but when a country’s official Twitter account for one of their embassies around the world promotes the message within it, it — at the very least — has the seal of approval from a portion of said country’s diplomats, government or bureaucrats.
The video, captioned “Time to move to Russia,” promotes all the things someone — if not the government of Russia — believes to be true about the eastern nation. The narrator of the video speaks in English with a faint, but overly produced Russian accent — which is one of the reasons some think the video is satire.

Here’s a list of the things the video promotes to attempt to get people to “move to Russia,” including a few items that seem like shots directed at the U.S.:
- Delicious Cuisine
- Beautiful Women
- Cheap Gas
- Rich History
- World Famous Literature
- Unique Architecture
- Fertile Soil
- Cheap Electricity and Water
- Cheap Taxi and Delivery
- Traditional Values
- No Cancel Culture
- Economy that can Withstand Thousands of Sanctions
The end of the video has the narrator speak a phrase that “Game of Thrones” fans will recognize and some construe as ominous.
“Don’t delay,” the narrator says. “Winter is coming.”
It’s a strange recruitment video allegedly aimed at getting people to move to Russia. Is it propaganda, satire or dead serious? You be the judge.
