Listen, it is the Woman who decides whether the Babies get born or not.
Men have little to no say in this.
If that is the case then why are there so many abortions in Russia?
Women changing their minds?
Most children are not planned.
So when your dealing with a population decline, the party most responsible is the Women.
And bullying them into having children is not a solution...
Does your mother know you talk this way about women on the internet?
Does she know you think so little of the females of the species... they are just human cows for men to make babies with?
Without said resources you aren't qualified to get a partner.
Of course.... what the government should do is give all eligible males a Ferrari... hell even give the married ones a Ferrari so they can all pull and get girls pregnant... who gives a shit about the women or their new babies... it is all about getting those numbers up right?
Except what you will likely find is the abortion rate mushrooming enormously, and a lot of broken marriages.
The issue here is the 80/20 situation, you need to break this cycle and the only way to do it, is to put some pressure on Women who don't make kids.
You think giving more power to men in relationships would increase the population?
If the NYT quotes some1, why not?
Don't be silly! 10M r in the entire firmer USSR, many of them were ethnic Russians. Most of the ethnic Russians outside of the RF just in the ex-USSR now live in Ukraine:
Why would I trust any information from such a source... how can I... according to them Russians are genetically evil people... they just can't help themselves...
I would think they would cherry pick the facts to suit the agenda they are pushing at the time.
During WWII the Soviets were our stoic allies in the war against fascism... today they oppose our imperial right to cultivate fascism in Kiev and Tiblisi and must be exterminated...
I wouldn't even believe the NYT to tell be the date.
The loss of highly skilled workers will hamper the Russian economy for years to come. Russia's educational and health care systems will further decline
Why would education and health decline?
If anything both seem to have greatly improved since 1991.
Innovative companies and projects will largely set up shop outside Russia's borders, and private enterprise in the country will diminish substantially. Russia already lags woefully behind the world in average money directed toward research and development, but losing the people behind such efforts will accelerate the trend. As a result, Russians will continue to depend on state-run industries and energy revenue to stay afloat, making the whole country vulnerable to outside shocks, such as changes in oil prices.
But Russia doesn't make anything and invents nothing because everything new is created in the US... they just copy. Wa Wa Wa...
Amusing that all the best people in Russia have moved to the west, yet the west seems to see Russia as a really serious threat... the fucked up western view to a T... it is simultaneously on the brink of collapse and just about to take over the world...
You could grow a lot of crops with that manure...
Figures do not include an estimated 20 million children not born because the war depressed fertility/birth rates.
Oh, dear god... how amusing... so Soviet losses in WWII could easily be tripled because all of the people who would never be born because of it... are you drunk?
So, if not for those losses, the RF could now have a few dozen Ms more population.
Assumptions.... and who is to say those extra dozen million of people might not have left the Soviet Union in 1991 too... taking families with them?
Her books r banned in China:
Is it because it is right wing western propaganda bullshit?
Now any1 can say/write anything as long it's not against public safety. If there is controversy, a person can be gagged but not before a word is out in print &/ blogosphere.
No they can't... several prominent western reporters have lost their jobs overnight and been isolated and ridiculed by their peers for offering support to the Palestinians... try it.
Just the abortions #s that were reported r enough to see that there were too many. To keep their men happy, many women didn't insist on using condoms that were disliked & of low quality.
So abortions were an effective fix for a problem. There are only too many abortions when the waiting list is more than 9 months.
It is funny that the west is so anti abortion, yet will happily supply Saudi Arabia bombs to murder children in Yemen...
"According to experts, around 20 million people with incomes below the poverty line could benefit from the food assistance programme," Doctor of Economic Sciences Leonid Kholod, ex-chief of the Russian government's department for the development of the agro-industrial complex, said in an interview with RBTH.
The average subsistence level in Russia is 173 euros (or $194) per month at the moment.
Wow, so they are catching up with the US and their food stamps?
Perhaps a less biased source could be found to give a more balanced view... or are you suggesting there are no trailer parks in the US and everyone has their own home (as opposed to one owned by the bank).
The Russian government may spend 240 billion rubles ($3.6 billion) on a national food stamp program to support an estimated 15-16 million Russian citizens whose poverty has deepened amid an economic slump, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Thursday.
Yes, America should be ashamed of its bullying tactics to try to force Putin to capitulate to the will of the west, but the west has always used economics as a weapon... a brutal blunt weapon that hurts the most vulnerable in society the most... and Russia is clearly adapting to deal with the problems the evil west is creating.
Ironically, the food sanctions counter imposed on the EU means Russian food production has exploded, so if anyone can afford to feed their own people it is now Russia.
