Russia's Demographics

Post by Sertorio » Fri Jul 13, 2018 8:59 am

Regularly people on this board declare their expectations of a Russia demise based on its poor demographic performance. Spengler published on his latest article on the Asia Times the following graph:

As one can see Russia's fertility rate is rising well above that of the western countries, which seems to indicate that Russia will be able to keep its economic growth. Too bad for those who would like to see Russia fading away...

Yes. And there will be folks who would argue that these are 2015 figures, and that the figures for Italy, Spain, and Germany will show increases today. But what are these increases due to? Mostly, Islamic invaders. Meanwhile, aware governments (e.g. Russia, Hungary) avert potential 5th column activities.

Yes, Putin instituted a programme to encourage ethnic Russians in other countries to move to Russia. But Jim is right to point out that these figures end in 2015, because the temporary boost from that seems to have tapered off; Russia's birth rate dropped by over 10 % last year, the lowest level in ten years.

Last time I checked Russia had a lot of "Islamic invaders" living there.
