    The West still does not comprehend how traumatic the Revolution and then WW2 was to the Russian People. My wife is Russian her mother lost all five maternal uncles in the war and her father lost both his father and step father. What is most shocking their familial loses weren’t unusual.

    As an American, I've always been fascinated with Russian history. I often hear fear-mongers on the news talk about a potential anti-US alliance between Russian and China but I am very skeptical of this due to the historical distrust and divergent interests between these two countries. What do Russians think about this?

    Anyway, the proudest achievement of my entire life was a semester in college when I managed to convince a beautiful Russian exchange student that I was actually a really cool guy. She was so much cooler and had such a unique personality compared to any American girl I've ever known. Not to mention, dat ass... I'm talking about a booty so fly that when I saw her, my mind rocketed past anything Sir-Mix-A-Lot could ever comprehend to a vision of this lovely creature tirelessly pulling my plow across golden fields with a child on each incredibly strong yet soft hip. This was no cute girl or plastic celebrity, she was a woman. I would marry her just so she could get American citizenship only to divorce me and empty my bank account after the required amount of time just for one more night with her. Alas, it was not meant to be. The semester ended, we said goodbye, promised to keep in touch but never did (this was before social media really consumed the world), and she returned to Krasnoyarsk never to be seen by the likes of me ever again...

    Russian friends, I understand Krasnoyarsk is quite remote and would require lots of connecting flights and train rides to reach. I am not a wealthy man, but I would pay you dearly in any form you desire to assist me in this quest. It is a big city and nearly a decade has passed, but believe me when I say I would recognize her immediately. I like to think she would remember me too.

    Actually it's not shrinking but stagnant and low birth rise. Many because emigration in 1990s due to condition of state internal which is chaos. Russian population rising at 1-2% each year and unlike Europe who gain rising population by immigrant, Russia did not. Many immigrant are just ethnic Russian from former Soviet Union. Since 2014 and 2018 millions of Crimean and Russian speakers from East Ukraine also recieve citizenship. It increase by many factors, but with low birth rate and trend for Europe and other developed country where population tend to stagnant. It every country problems or not even a problem

    Fertility rate in Russia is 1.82, why even make a video about this issue in Russia if the entire western world, including the USA and all of Europe, has the exact same problem but has it worse. There's countries in Europe with a fertility rate close to 1, which means one person is born for every two people who die, which means their population is reduced by half every generation. The only reason there's still people in Portugal, Spain and Greece is because they import arabs by the millions a year.

    The only countries that have a huge growth in population is poor muslim countries.
    This is in fact a problem for humanity with migrant problems that follows.
    Russia! Please don't go down that road. It will destroy everything that relates to Russia.
    Perhaps the country should split up into minimum 2 parts. The western (European) growing part and the eastern part.

      Are you European? (I'm pretty sure you are from Scandinavian countries) Tbh, I'm Asian and I DON'T LIKE HOW THEY BREED LIKE RATS. With socio-economic considerations, what do you think if Russian government somehow inviting (White) Europeans to build Siberia? They would be given choice to pick where they want to live (in part of Siberia) and Russian gov. would provide all money, supplies and equipment for all infrastructure. Would the Europeans be happy and make more child, or what?

    I know that Putin is trying hard to reward the families with children.
    It is working and it must lead to growth in population.
    The economical sanctions and the instability that follows, will have negative effects though.

      It's only for russian citizens.
      1 bag of money for first child. Larger for second child.
      Third Child the amount continues to raise.
      NB it's not money for mobile phone, television or food, but for bigger apartment, land for building house or pay for education.
