Good news!!

the minister attributed the trend in part to the introduction of the so-called “maternity capital” on January 1, 2007.

In a bid to encourage families to have more than one child, all women who gave birth to their second child after January 1, 2007 are eligible for a government-issued benefit of almost 409,000 rubles (about $12,600).

The benefit is not paid in cash, but parents can spend the money to improve their housing conditions, pay for their children’s education or put the money towards a pension.

Possibly! in part..... but I think the people of Russia have seen what the real world is really like, biased, hate-filled and biased, grabbers of Russian artists and scientists, and they are going to raise their population to challenge those land-grabbing and resource grabbing greedy gusses of the west.

Its common knowledge that Russians are dying out while the 'Churkas' are popping out babies like a soviet tank factory.

The Myth of Muslim Population Growth in Russia

There are two major arguments from the pessimists who predict an Islamic doomsday for Russia in 2050. The first is the higher Muslim birth rate. The second is the uncontrolled immigration from Muslim majority nations like Tadzhikistan and Azerbaidzhan. The first argument is valid, to some extent. For example, according to the 2002 Census, the birth rates for the Chechen-Ingush were 2.5 times higher than that for ethnic Russians. But at the same time, the birth rate for Tatars (the largest Muslim ethnic group) was 3% lower than that for the Russians. The difference in birth rate for other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups varied, from +24% for Adyghe to +97% for Kumyks. So in future, the North Caucasian component of the population is likely to grow, partly at the expense of the Tatar-Bashkir group.

If the growth rates remain at current levels, then by 2050, the Tatar-Bashkir group will account for 6.5 to 7 million people and the North Caucasian group will account for 8.5 to 9 million people. The immigrant Muslim population is likely to double to reach a figure of 3 million by 2050. So in the most pessimistic scenario, the Muslim population of Russia will reach 19 million by 2050, which should be lower than the Muslim population predicted for France for the same time-period. To reach a Muslim majority in 2050, Russia's non-Muslim population should decline to 19 million from the present 129 million figure, which I find very much impossible to attain.

As of 2013, Russian TFR of 1,7 children per woman[3] is the highest in the Eastern Europe, which means an average Russian family has more children (1,7) than an average family in any other Eastern European country.

Good! It is a good thing that Russia does what is best for Russia and its people and it's too bad if there are those in the west and south who don't like that. Too dang bad. Russia will not only survive the betrayal of the west and thrive as long as they remain independent and let the west rave on in its insanity.

Good for you. there are those who are very proud not to be Indian, like Russians who have contributed so much to the arts, sciences and beauty in the world and will continue to do so. Russians are wonderful people with a beautiful and wonderful culture and Russians are proud to be Russians.
Please stay in India and continue to overpopulate your country to the detriment of its own people. We won't miss you.
