Russian Demographics by the Numbers

Here is a look at the basic facts concerning Russia’s demographic present and future, strictly by the numbers:


Russia’s ranking for mortality. Only 9 nations on the planet have higher mortality than Putin’s Russia.


Russia’s ranking for birth rate. Only 59 nations in the world have a lower birth rate than Putin’s Russia.


Russia’s ranking for life expectancy.  Only 71 nations in the world have lower life expectancy than Putin’s Russia.


Amount by which Russia’s population will fall in the next 36 years according to the World Bank.

Note: Observers agree that Russia’s recent meager upticks in birth rate and life expectancy were temporary.  After nearly 15 years of Putin, Russia still doesn’t rank in the top 150 in the world in either category.

    A complete desaster which can only end up in the collapse of the country. The shockwaves of this geopolitical earthquake will affect Europe as well, that’s for sure. Lucky US-Americans who are an ocean away from this mess.

    This is why we fought the Crimean War against Photius Heresy so they could never Bystra Paris again! Putin’s tax, gay and oil policies are almost as bad as Sarah Palin’s
