Timothy Markus wrote:I received mine about 2 weeks ago, so it sure can take a while.  I know people who have ordered things from overseas and it's taken them 3-4 months to get them, so I don't think it matters where it's coming from.

I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it sure looks strong.  I'll post a review when I have used it, but I'm already sure I'll love it.  

Thanks Yury!



Good news, Timothy! :) Looking forward for your review!

Important information for those who ordered ploskorez Fokina (Russian flat-cutter) from us:

We shipped more than 90 parcels in April, May and June and all of them stuck for several weeks at Russian border or somewhere else but later most of them went through and were delivered to the destination. Some parcels arrive after 3-4 months since they were shipped. All parcels are late due to COVID-19 impact. And this happens to all post services now, USPS, Canada Post, DHL or Russian Post, no matter, all of them have to obey COVID-19 quarantine instructions.

Please be assured that any delay with delivery is not our fault, it is the subject of COVID-19 impact and we are pretty sure that all parcel will arrive sooner or later. Please be patient.

The situation is getting much better now: new parcels are delivered almost on time whereas some old parcels are still on the way somewhere...

So if you have not recieved your parcel yet please let us know so that we can make a claim about it at Russian Post, sometimes it helps to speed up the parcel.

At the end of July president Vladimir Putin said the country's coronavirus outbreak had stabilized. It gives hope that the lockdown restrictions will be lifted soon and Russia will open the borders for the foreigners. It means that our September dolmen tour (Vedic Russia retreat) can still take place this year (September 19th to 28th).
So once again, we invite you to see mysterious dolmens, enjoy the festival of Positive Creation and explore life in ecovillage of Kin's domains Vedrussia! For more details please check this page: https://ecominded.net/vedic-russia-ethno-tour

Took more than two months - not Ecominded's fault. Was shipped immediately.
If you're waiting and your tracking info hasn't updated in more than a month, it'll still get to you (probably)!
Tracking history for my shipment is here:

Thank you for your feedback, Andy!
Things are getting better now. Almost every day we get reports from our customers who finally recieved their parcels, after 2-3 months since they were shipped.

My dear friends, Following up on the news about Russia, we disclose some essential tips for acquiring land in Russia: https://ecominded.net/buy-land-russia This article will be especially interesting for sustainable living enthusiasts inspired by Anastasia's vision from the Ringing Cedars of Russia book series, who want to relocate to Russia and create their Kin's domain (family homestead) in one of the Russian ecovillages: https://ecominded.net/russian-family-homesteads

One hectare is given to one person, which means that a family of 5 can get 5 hectares of land for free. And of course different families can join together and get their land in one place.

Daniel Ackerman wrote:The changing climate has made Siberia a dramatically different place. Much more land is arable, but the melting permafrost is releasing massive amounts of methane into the atmosphere. The fires are terrible this year. I hope the Russian government is not encouraging people to move to Siberia and cut forests to create industrial farmland.

The land giveaway program relates only to open public lands, not the forests and national reserves, of course. There is a lot of abandoned land in Russia waiting for people to come and develop it.
