Russia is rapidly losing its demographic resource


As statistics show, population decline is increasing in Russia. The country is rapidly losing its demographic resource, which is much more important than economic or technological.


Thus, according to the results of the first nine months of the year, the number of births decreased by 6,1 percent compared to the same period last year. From January to September, the natural decline in the Russian population reached 463 people. At the same time, for the whole of 2019, this figure was at the level of 316,2 thousand rubles.

At the same time, the authorities have not yet offered a clear solution to the problem. Money is allocated for maternity capital, for various benefits and payments. However, this does not improve the situation. Formally, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection should be responsible for demography in Russia, but it has not yet proposed clear measures in this area.

The experience of the United Arab Emirates, Norway and a number of other countries shows that it is impossible to “fill in with money” the problem of fertility, other, more comprehensive measures are needed, which can only be done by a separate relevant ministry.

Along with this, a change in the strategy of the country's spatial development can bring some success, according to which the growth of Russia with new people should come not from large metropolitan areas like Moscow and St. Petersburg, but from small towns.

Projects for the creation of large densely populated agglomerations were once proposed by Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin. However, such a concept is already outdated, since it worked only in the conditions of industrialization and the active development of the service sector.

In the transition to the sixth technological order, small forms of settlement become more important: small towns and suburbs. Russian expanses make it possible to provide residents with inexpensive, spacious housing within the framework of low-rise buildings. Need only политическая the will and attention of the country's leadership to the demographic problem.

    Officials live in a parallel reality and cannot see the picture from the outside. everything is simple. At the gene level, Russians have a genetic background to prepare and overcome difficulties and hardships and war. Since the beginning of the year, the people at the gene level have gathered and prepared to survive in difficult times ..... therefore, it’s not up to children.

    A country in which citizens are biomass, consumables, orcs, Russians, cattle, cattle, garbage, shit, oil for the elites is doomed to extinction. Until the government offers anything in return, Russia will die out, which is consistent with the unspoken government policy of replacing the indigenous population with Europeans and migrants from Asia. Anything is good for them, if only to please their owners - the Anglo-Saxons!
    They have turned one of the strongest countries in the world into a crumbling colony. The main thing for them - colonial managers - to please their overseas bosses.

    The state should offer large families a new house at a reduced price. Normal area and with a plot. At the birth of subsequent children, 50% must be deducted from the price of the house, that is, a family with 3 children receives a house with an area of ​​120 square meters for 3 million rubles on 15 acres. They give birth to another child, they owe 1,5 million, two children write off the mortgage. Then they will give birth. And right now the apartment has 3 rooms in 100 sq. m. It costs 6-7 million, who can buy it? The house will build 100 sq. m. 7-8 million. Give birth to 3 children in odnushki? You need a real family mortgage, or 1,5 million for each child, so that you can buy decent housing. Or housing at preferential prices, much lower than market prices. And maternity leave is paid not for 18 months, but at least 24, so that the child can be sent to kindergarten.

      you wrote a common truth, people have nowhere to live, and I support the idea of ​​cash injections into real estate from the state, that is, it is necessary to increase maternity capital to the level of not partial, but full payment for housing for large families, the construction reform has led to an increase in the costs of developers, about a third of the cost of housing these are bribes to extortionate officials from the land, from the GOS from Rostekhnadzor, from fire supervision, even from the Federal Air Transport Agency (the Rosaviatsi pays hundreds of thousands for a certificate that your house does not interfere with aircraft, although it is lower than the surrounding houses) and other extortionists whose name is legion ..... but now, after the reform, a third goes to the bank, and the developer must pay for all building materials and work from a third of the cost of housing, and even get at least some profit ....

    The population is forced to huddle in miserable Soviet high-rise buildings, tk. the cost of square meters is overestimated by 3 times, and salaries are underestimated by 2 times, so that people can get hooked on mortgage bondage and all for the sake of their overseas partners, the owners of money.
    The society is in the deepest crisis, the way out of which is not visible.

    I also want to note that there is a war going on, so the decline will be greater than in a peaceful year. From the shelling of the Nazis, people are dying in the Belgorod, Kursk, Oryol regions. In the Russian Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, dozens of civilians per day die every day. With the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 400000 people, our troops lost at least 50000 people. That's where the increase in mortality comes from. And of course, constant anxiety, expectation of troubles, put pressure on people, hence the drop in the birth rate. The war will end, the guys will return to their wives and demographics will go up.

    First of all, Russia needs honest government. The kind of power that people would trust. That's why evil America got its hands on Russia's money? Because our officials brought them there. Why did they bring it? They wanted to get some interest on the deposit of this money. Is not it? Why do Russians not want to keep their money in Russian banks? Because they don't trust the banks, they don't trust the authorities. Why did the state-owned bank Sberbank deceive depositors THREE TIMES in the 90s? Most officials are not completely honest in their actions. And the authorities are surprised that our birth rate is falling. And in the emirates, the authorities deceive their citizens? .. That's why they live richly there.

    No, a separate ministry can only slightly improve the situation, but will not solve the problem, since it has a nationwide and even civilizational character...

    In addition to the threat from the West = from Ukraine, the 5th column inside Russia, the biggest threat to Russia is the depopulation of the population, which began with the memorable reforms of N.S. Khrushchev on the enlargement of cities and the elimination of small, unpromising cities and villages. Not a war, not a change in the political system and form of government, but the elimination of small towns and villages became the key to the depopulation of the population in Russia.
    For your information:.
    For all its 1000 years and more, Russia has been constantly at war, but it has always been restored and restored its population. The population of Russia recovered even after the Tatar-Mongol invasion, when entire cities and regions of Rus' were destroyed, burned and massacred. During times of tough internal reforms, Russia also multiplied its own population.
    The reason for this ability to self-restoration of the population of Russia is in the existing family structure in Rus', in Russia, based on patriarchy = a large family, which forms the foundation-foundation of Rus' itself, Russia.
    With the Khrushchev reform, the liquidation of small towns and villages, according to the then terminology - not promising, the consolidation of cities, the creation of large urban centers-agglomerations, the population of small towns, the rural population began to move to the city, which, as a result, under the influence of the economic conditions of the existence of families in city ​​led to the destruction and elimination of patriarchal large families. If in a village, in a village, in a small town a large patriarchal family can normally exist at the expense of its own economy, then in the city a family exists only at the expense of the wages received - family income, which, at times, is only enough to ensure the normal existence of adult family members - father and mother and one child. If the family income is not enough, then the family refuses to have a child, which was observed in the early 90s. A similar situation is developing now, when family incomes have begun to fall in the wake of the crisis. A decrease in the family income of an urban family inevitably leads to a decrease in the birth rate. If we add here the liberal propaganda of family values ​​that has been raging in Russia since the late 80s and early 90s, with their multi-gender nature, same-sex marriages, etc., then we have a complete compote, on the basis of which a tendency to depopulation of the population has formed. in Russia...
    The main question is whether it is possible to reverse the trend towards depopulation in Russia. The answer is you can. But this is the topic of a separate article.

      I support, the main reason for the extinction of Russia is the loss of historical Orthodox values ​​​​and the family way of life, the authorities verbally support the church, and, as it were, threw off this problem of society to the ROC (public organization), while the ROC does not have any support from the state, except for the allocation of land for temples (which still need to be built, that is, to look for sponsors, which not everyone succeeds in), but the media and education are completely pro-Western anti-religious and the ROC is clearly playing an information war on them. I don’t call for pumping money into the church, and it’s even harmful, because the church will then become a bureaucratic state structure, but it’s simply necessary to clear the media and education of pro-Western views, to admit specialists promoting traditional family values, to admit the ROC and other traditional confessions there. and for a long time.

      that's right, but let's add Khrushchev's anti-religious propaganda here, and the reason for Russia's depopulation will become obvious

    The birth of children is a matter that does not primarily depend on material well-being. This vocation and people with such a vocation become less and less due to the natural development of human civilization. The birth of children in Russia must be made a specialized activity, and then it is purposefully necessary to find (form) families that see the meaning of their life in the birth and upbringing of children. This activity should purposefully be adequately paid by the state. The technical support of such a large family (housing, car, household appliances, etc.) should also be provided by the state. From the point of view of minimizing costs, it is preferable to organize such families in rural areas on the basis of farmsteads. And of course, all this should be formalized in the form of an agreement between the state, on the one hand, and a potentially large family, on the other hand. All other payments (such as maternity capital) should be consistently terminated as ineffective, since Russia will be saved by families with at least five children (and not necessarily their own). All the rest (not specialized families) are entitled to receive certain benefits and payments from the state only when the number of children in them is two or more.

    DO NOT need any puzzles! A person lacks confidence and opportunities .. A person wants to be needed! And get a decent reward in the form of a salary! Everything! Then he will figure it out. Does a person have problems getting a profession? Organize SPECIALLY good teachers! Do not leave it to businessmen who think about money, but really organize and simplify as much as possible! A person comes - he is taught. Help to find a job. Everything! Quality teachers, decent work! This is the basis for the emergence of aspirations and hopes in people! I am 32, no family, no education, I don’t even think about starting a family! Because I know that I would provide for myself .. Although there is longing in my soul, for love and care for someone! But I haven't found a place for myself in this world.. And I'm just wasting precious time! If the people cannot get used to this complex world, then simply, literally, swipe the handle! Help build the foundation for people! It is impossible to feed fish endlessly, give me a fishing rod!

      dear Vladimir, do not despair, you can quite earn money even without education, you just need confidence in the future, without faith in God it will not be at any salary, you need to disperse the teachers who did not instill in you faith in God, and thereby doomed you to disbelief in your own strength, just as educated and wealthy people argue, and they also often do not have a family like you .... the problem is not in external circumstances, but in internal confidence in the future both on earth and after death

    Of course, I agree with the commentators that the standard of living should be raised, but why shouldn't we also rejoice? Why raise the birth rate at all? The whole world should think about measures to reduce it. 8 billion! Affordable contraception and women's education in all countries with sad statistics that speak of terrifying suppression of the female sex.
    What kind of measures do they want to take? Is it against us? Let people decide for themselves how many children they have. Quality matters, not quantity!
    The fact that we have a decline in rates speaks not only of poverty, but also of the awareness of the population, especially women. I hope we will come to a society clean from traditional values ​​and obscurantism

    I don’t know how many unmarried people are here, but I’ll tell you exactly why I didn’t manage to have children, which I always wanted.

    1. At first, I could not find a wife in my provincial town. Everyone has a different level of self-worth. Mine was talking about how I didn't want to have as my lawful wife someone who went from hand to hand. The average number of sexual partners by the age of 25 is estimated at 10-15 people, in some cases we are talking about dozens. It also turned out that almost all of them have been like this since high school. Even if you try to close your eyes to this, another problem arises.

    They are all dull-witted and unable to communicate. Their knowledge of the world is limited to their street or village. There is also a problem with the fact that the majority are simply mentally handicapped, which is expressed in various factors of aggression, such as tantrums from scratch, abusing or mating. Not everyone wants to see a bydlot and a hamlo as a wife.

    If we talk about the physical aspect, then many have problems with hygiene, and by the age of 30, most are overweight. Ahead is waiting for greasy skin, an unpleasant odor and other health problems. And this all manifests itself up to 35-40 years.

    There is no need to talk about any honesty in a conversation with them, they lie even over trifles, even where there is no point.

    In other words, if you have at least some idea of ​​your own dignity, have achieved something in life and do not want to exchange yourself for garbage, then in Russia it is very difficult to find a wife.

    2. Divorce. Even if we leave out the question that the court deprives you of all your property, and society is sharpened to force you to leave everything to your ex-wife and go to the heating main, then even your children are guaranteed to be squeezed out of you. Who wants to be a miserable dad who sees his child once a week for several hours? If you encounter trouble or difficulties while paying alimony, you will be sent to jail.

    And at the same time, your ex-wife is blackmailing you with the opportunity to see the child, demanding, in addition to alimony, certain financial incentives. Or maybe not demand anything, just out of principle decides to take revenge and block access. In my region, there are 114% divorces relative to the number of marriages this year, last year it was 103%.

    And even if you agree with all this, the wife simply finds new lovers, over and over again imposing them as new daddies and brainwashing the child that daddy is to blame for all the troubles. And now, after a few years, you no longer have a child, even if he is alive.

    3. Surrogacy. Thanks to the prosecutor's office, government and legislators. This topic was completely closed a couple of years ago. I planned to use it so that I would have at least a couple of children, but when the General Prosecutor's Office began to imprison men under the article of the slave trade, or even worse, pedophilia, I spat on this country, on this people and on this world. It's easier to just live out your life, looking at this whole circus.

    And these are just some of the problems that I faced, wanting to realize my dream of a family. And I'm not some drunkard. I have a higher education, I served in the Marine Corps, I was not involved in any criminal or administrative offenses, I never humiliated people or beat them for far-fetched reasons. I have long ago bought a good comfortable apartment in a high-rise building, I have a good job, I am a sociable and fairly sincere person. Appearance for the top three, but not finished.

    Therefore, the extinction of Russia is an inevitable process. I hope that they will have time to give birth enough so that they pay my pension, even if they die from overexertion at the same time. I don't care.

      I don’t know how old you are .... I know a lot of Americans who are going to the Russian Federation to find a wife for themselves, because in America women are even worse, all female grumpiness and hysteria should break about you, and drain without harming you, this is a property of a real man, just don’t listen to women, my advice to you, .... about a small town, I’m not sure you’re right, there are sluts and decent women everywhere, for example, there are many free women in the church who want to get married, maybe you were looking in the wrong place? do not despair .... I personally divorced twice and married three times, I have many children, I met many terrible women on my way, they all went through the forest even before the start of a serious relationship, and only three turned out to be worthy of me, and then two turned out to be unworthy and I left them ... you will not lose any property during a divorce, all the property that you had before marriage or inherited during marriage, no one has the right to take away from you during a divorce, only what you acquired during the period is divided in half marriage, that is, jointly acquired, some kind of chimera about alimony, (do you really have a higher education or did you buy a diploma from a private university?), many do not pay alimony and certainly there is no responsibility for a small salary (and, accordingly, small alimony), of course, there are cases that wives prove the black salary of their ex-husband, but this is in the upper strata of society, a simple woman is not capable of this, and ordinary men do not earn so much that someone tried to prove their non-white salary ..... pos cold phrases give out the true reason for your loneliness, you are too lazy to feed your children and your wife (a banal reason for men who do not want to get married, because children and a wife are a lot of chores and worries, but this is life) .... while you are young, you don’t understand that no other people’s children will feed you, I’m already old, I’m sick, my son brought me a glass of water and crutches to walk, and if you die alone, then no one will know, especially since those men who don’t want to have a family start drink from longing, and simply do not live up to retirement, or they are found by criminals "for lonely old people" and taken to the forest to take possession of the apartment that you purchased, so that my children will not have to feed you ... do not hope young man

    For population growth, one thing is necessary first of all: the provision by the state of a stable good standard of living for the younger generation. The neoliberal capitalist state will not cope with this task.
    The educational system should transmit not only technical knowledge and theory, but above all, contribute to the development of character, personality, team and practical skills.
    Provide work immediately after graduation, provide housing, garden, reduced work time up to 30 hours / week, leisure in the form of cultural centers and the palace of pioneers, outdoor recreation / hiking near settlements.
    Limit social networks like tiktok and instagram to avoid bad habits and bad examples.

    The ideology of neo-liberal competition and materialism leads everywhere to social tension, stress, the lack of a cohesive team and, as a result, an unwillingness to start a family and have children.

    It's time for our leaders to think about the social system and values. Western propagandists have led us into a dead end with this market.
