A 30-year-old resident from Doncaster [O.R: A City in the county of South Yorkshire, North England], Thomas Scott-Chambers, sent a request to the administration of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin. The man wants to obtain Russian citizenship and leave the UK after he was fired for his pro-Russian views.
“When I got a reply, I could not believe my eyes”, said the Englishman. “I still don’t believe that such a simple person, like me, who loves Russia may obtain Russian citizenship. What I received, a reply, means that the Russian Federation treated my request seriously.”
Chambers worked in Britain as a translator, but after articles in the English media about him were published in 2014, he remained without work.
“They said I was aiding and abetting terrorists and was homophobic, but it is not true,” said an indignant Thomas. “Now it’s hard for me to get a job. I work as a private translator, but every day I am worried, I can’t support a family on odd jobs.”
Thomas is sure that in Russia it will be easier to live. He is ready to do anything in our country.
“I’ll agree to sweep the streets of Moscow, I’m ready for any job. I don’t care about money,” said the Englishman. “I have been to Russia. My first visit was when I was 18. I love your country. I would like to go live in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, where there are simple good people.
The presidential Administration promised that they will give an answer to the question of citizenship by March 16th. Thomas Chambers hopes that this year he will move to Russia.
