Russia has been mocked over a bizarre promotional video intended to encourage emigration to the pariah state entitled 'Time to Move to Russia'.

With a gravelly voiceover that sounds comedic and a monotonous listing of national qualities that feels satirical, it has baffled viewers as to whether it is a parody or actually serious.

The Russian embassy in Spain tweeted the 53 second clip with the titles of the video followed by white, blue and red hearts of the Russian flag on Monday

It is unclear if the video is an official Kremlin production.

The video is accompanied by glossy stock footage of typical Russian scenes ranging from wholesome visuals of children running through fields and Russian cuisine to monuments like the All-Russian Exhibition Centre.

But it soon drops any pretence of being sincere.

Among the reasons to move to Russia it lists are: 'cheap gas, no cancel culture' and 'an economy that can withstand thousands of sanctions.'

On the other hand, it also extolls the 'rich history, world famous literature, unique architecture, ballet and hospitality' of Russia in a manner that makes the country look quite appealing.
