    I've read an article today about the 30% increase in rate of suicide in Alberta following the oil price crash, that kinda reminded me about suicide rate in Russia so I did a research and found out that Russia is still ranked at least 14th overall among countries with the highest suicides in a 2012 report by WHO. Does anyone know how RF government is dealing with this problem?

    Population of native Russians/Slavs is actually declining. The population increase figures are probably reflecting to the rise in the number of migrants from Asia.

    Source?

    Personally as a Slav myself, I could not care less about a skin color. As long as stuff like language, culture, religion, art, etc are preserved future citizens of my country can be metallic-green with violet streaks for all I care...

    Research into the X – and Y-chromosomes of Russian people, in turn, has shown the absolute genetic identity of the Russian population in whole of the vast area of Russia. So the Russians consist of a classical ethnos, having its own persistent characteristics and features. Those in possession of the “Russian gene” have the so-called haplogroup R1a Y-chromosome. It is very close to that of some other Slavic peoples.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2253976/

    (...) The first broad studies of the variation of the patrilineal genetic system in Europe immediately revealed its marked phylogeographic differentiation. These two pioneering papers and subsequent studies have shown that western Europeans carry predominantly haplogroup R1b, whereas eastern Europeans have high frequency of R1a lineages, that southern Slavs are characterized by high frequency of I1b, whereas Scandinavia is enriched with I1a, and that haplogroups J2 and E3b are confined mainly to southern Europe. (...) Every second Russian Y chromosome belongs to haplogroup R1a. Figure 3A shows distribution of this haplogroup in the studied historic Russian area (indicated by the gray line) within a general European context. With the exclusion of Central and South Asian populations, the map demonstrates that within the boundaries of Europe, R1a is characteristic for Balto-Slavonic populations, with two exceptions: southern Slavs and northern Russians (Figure 3A). R1a frequency decreases in northeastern Russian populations down to 20%–30%, in contrast to central-southern Russia, where its frequency is twice as high (Table 2). To investigate statistical significance of this cline, we performed the spatial-autocorrelation analysis (correlogram on the Figure 3A). With increasing distance class, autocorrelation value changes from significantly positive to significantly negative values, confirming that variation of R1a within historical Russian area is generally clinal, but the value becomes nonsignificant and close to zero in the longest-distance class (a “depression”), indicating that influence of this cline is restricted to a part of the studied area. The map on Figure 3A shows that the northward decreasing cline is interrupted in the two, northernmost and southernmost, populations (both are recognized as specific subethnic groups of Russians, namely Cossacs and Pomors); when these two marginal populations were omitted the correlogram reveals the cline in the remaining core area (data not shown). Typically for East European populations, the frequency of its sister group R1b in Russians is much lower (Table 2). Despite the clear west-to-east clinal trend in the whole Europe (4 and 5 and Figure 3B), inside the historical Russian area, its distribution is somewhat mosaic (map on the Figure 3B). Spatial-autocorrelation analysis (Figure 3B) confirmed the absence of clinal variation of R1b within the historical Russian area. (...)

    (...)Our results reveal that around 80% of the paternal Belarusian gene pool is composed of R1a, I2a and N1c Y-chromosome haplogroups – a profile which is very similar to the two other eastern European populations – Ukrainians and Russians.(...)

    Very interesting.

    Russia Population Grew Once More in 2015

    http://russia-insider.com/en/russia-population-grew-once-more-2015/ri12482

    The population increased by 220 000 last year (compared to 260 000 in 2014), so overall good news.

    According to Anatoly Karlin's Twitter, basically the same births and deaths as in 2014:

    Suicide rates fall in Russia

    New figures show that the number of suicides in Russia has dropped to its lowest level in 50 years. Such low levels were last seen at the end of Nikita Khrushchev's rule and in Leonid Brezhnev's first years in power

    Feminists should take a look a learn from this.

    https://www.rt.com/news/335846-siberia-woman-blacksmith-sexist/

    With the help of a small grant and Aleksey Larin, a local master struggling to find apprentices, Biletskaya drew up a business plan, then immersed herself in the centuries-old, almost ritualized world of wrought-iron smithery, coming for several hours at a time, then eventually spending her entire working day there.

    And while no one objected, few resisted a chance to pass a comment.

    “People react when they find out, all the time, and they say uncomplimentary things, with a smirk,” says Biletskaya. “They ask, ‘Who do you think you are?’ ‘What can a woman do with metal?’ ‘Why did you bother?’ To be honest, it still hurts.”

    But it would be disingenuous to suggest Biletskaya – who has “Pity is for the weak” carved next to her workplace – hasn’t profited from her gender.

    Traditional blacksmithing is catnip to TV and documentary crews, and doubly so, when it is a telegenic blonde wielding the tongs. Within a year, Biletskaya had been featured on national television, while her website became flooded with orders.

    Yet, one man on it wasn’t looking to buy, but to admire. Fellow blacksmith Evgeniy Biletskiy told Anna he fell in love from just looking at a picture of her, wearing an apron, face glowing with reflected fire. He soon bought a ticket to a local festival, and within months the two became a couple.

    Anna’s ambitions go beyond carefully-crafted chandeliers and ornate country house gates.

    An artist at heart, she has become the organizer of the local smithery festival, has participated in dozens of exhibitions, and regularly stages masterclasses for children and tourists.

    Russian woman are some of the craziest. And they are tough woman too (hence why many of them are in the military as well). I have to hand it to them, the woman here would scream at the thought of breaking a nail, not mentioning even firing a gun or getting their hands bloody. At the same time too though, they scare the shit outa me.

    Surprisingly for Mister Adomanis, Russia's Demographics Are Still Improving

    But something funny happened this time around: Russian mortality indicators have actually improved noticeably since the onset of the recession. Between 2014 and 2015, average life expectancy increased by about half a year to 71.4. That might sound low (and it is) but it is a new all-time record. Russians have never lived as long as they do now.

    Even more surprisingly, 2016 has been off to an even better start. Detailed life expectancy data aren’t yet available, and won’t be until early 2017, but from January through May the crude death rate was down by a full 5%. Given the steady aging of Russia’s population, this means that life expectancy has continued to increase, and at an even more rapid pace than it did last year. You could easily make the case that Russian public health isn’t just improving but that it is doing so at an accelerating pace.

    Note how many of the key indicators started to decline after 2000, i.e. on Putin's watch. In case citizens of NATO don't
    understand, Putin is the best Russian leader of all time. If he wants to be in office until he is over 70 years then all power to
    him. If NATO had its way, Russia would have had a succession of compradors like Yeltsin and would have collapsed like Ukraine
    by now.

    Some free advice for such emigrants: if you think you are going to be better off in the west, then you are very sadly mistaken.
    You are going to have to start from scratch if you are an engineer, doctor or any other profession aside from the ones
    that do not require certification and education. You will be paying rent like you have never seen before. Your meager
    immigrant income will go to support your landlord.

    Stay in Russia and let your children get a proper education and not Mickey Mouse time waste. Your children can still get
    a PhD without having to go into major debt. In Canada, post secondary education now costs a lot.

    Stay in Russia to live with people with a naturally compatible mentality and not MSM drones who have no culture of
    grass roots information exchange. In Canada and the USA, political discussion among friends or in a bar is frowned upon.

    If you really want a better life then work and fight for it in Russia.

    Good advice. But it is also good to see that the trend has changed a lot and majority of Russians still do not want to emigrate. Although, I noticed that there is a fairly large increase in emigrants and it comes down to many of the workers who lived in Russia, returning home. But Russia is still getting flooded.

    For most, they talk that they would be interested in emigrating. I imagine that these are "wishful" thinkings that if they are given the opportunity, they would. Majority of them are not aware of the system that they would be moving to and not realize that the systems out west relies upon them to be wage slaves and heavily in debt. Many realize this only after the fact. As for the education part, it may also be in terms that they would be given a much higher chance of getting a job in Russia after receiving it from Canada or USA. But yes, you are right. A general IT course in Canada costs roughly $20K and this wont guarantee any kind of job. Specialized jobs cost quite a bit more as they request "per-requesits"

    Top Russian Politician Nikolai Starikov: We need to ban abortions in Russia





    In my opinion this is the right way to go for Russia, strong family traditions is essential for a strong country, abortions i think only serves to erode people's potential to make families and results to lower population growth all over Russia. If this trend is to change, people's attitude towards family building needs to be changed radically, I understand that doing this right away will give American backed NGOs excuse to protest and oppose such initiative, the government needs to find innovative ways to implement these measures, even if it means a slow process, as long as in the long run these are strongly implemented. russia
