    Lets not forget that Russia has the second I highest abortion rate only behind china. Also China has suffered similar population losses in WW2 and is in a much better position than Russia, so how much does this really explain?

    Also WW1, the Russian Civil War and Soviet purges hammered population growth as well.

    PART 1 OG 2
    In the USSR, the myth of the Great Patriotic War was and still is the central to the identity of the Soviet and todays Russians citizen.
    The practical reasons were obvious: after the end of the war, there was no positive event of equal significance that could play a unifying role. Starting from 1965, the Soviet state cultivated the image of the powerful victorious Soviet nation united in battling the evil invaders in lavish celebrations. Today, it is once again being used as a nation-formative myth, and one that justifies modern Russian military expansion.
    The Kremlin is convincing the Russian population that by invading Ukraine it is not committing aggression against a neighboring country, but merely continuing the battle against fascists who endanger both Russia and the world.
    To do that, it perpetuates historical falsifications of the Soviet era. A new book published by the Institute of National Memory aims to bust Soviet-era myths about World War II.

    The RuSSian Soviet propaganda Myth about ww2 …Russia like to promote the myth of the Great Patriotic War started 1941 started on 22th June 1941, after the German invasion in the Soviet Union . All the combat actions that took place before 1941 according to this fantastic Kremlin lei, was a separate happening that has nothing to do with the ww2 or the Soviet entry in World War 2 -

    The Red Army first opened fire on 17th September 1939, when entered the Eastern Poland. Soviet forces captured all Polish territory that was marked as the Soviet sphere of interest in Molotov-Ribbentrop pact.
    It was a use of force and therefore the Soviet Union entered World War II as a German ally since they held a friendly joint parade at Brestlitovsk.
    Soviet invasion was the finishing blow to Poland and helped Germans to win the invasion more quickly. Even if the Winter war in Finland could be taken as the separate war, it also was a part of a Soviet campaign to acquire all territories in the Soviet sphere of interest and at this time the Soviet Union was the German ally and British were considering to send an armed support for Finland.
    Also the occupation of the Baltic states and Bessarabia of Rumania was a military action. So again the Great Patriotic war myth was created to hide the unholy alliance with Germany and the actions done before 22. June 1941.
    The Napoleon invasion of Russia in 1812 is also called Patriotic War, but it was also a part of Napoleonic war same as the Eastern campaign in 1941 was the part of World War II that the Soviet Union already begun in 1939.

    THE MYTH of the Soviet Union won the war thanks to the courage of the Soviet people and the wisdom of the Soviet command. The allied help was not that important

    In the first weeks of the German invasion, the Germans captured large areas and went to far distances. It was partly blamed on Red Army attack stance not defensive, but also the lack of morale, loyalty and courage was to blame. In fact in the first phases of the war Red Army took a chaotic panicked retreat all the way to Smolensk and Leningrad.
    The airplanes, tanks and guns were just abandoned to Germans. Divisions located many hundred miles from the front retreated. It was only the Stalins order of “no step back” and shooting the men from behind that stopped the complete collapse of the Red Army. Reason?
    There was a lack of discipline in the Soviet ranks, lack of professionalism and no big support to Stalin. Especially in Western Ukraine, where after the Stalinist repressions and the Great Famine was a heavy sense of Ukrainian nationalism. Same goes for Baltic states were Red Army had no support from the local populace.
    Only when Eastern Front stopped near Moscow, and Soviets gathered enough forces with draconian efforts, Red Army was ready to fight again. Plus the Germans failed to fill out the hopes of the Ukrainians and Baltic people and did many atrocities that moved Russians against the Germans. So it was a fear that helped the Soviets to fight not bravery. And the incompetence of the Soviet command that emphasized on brutal majority not tactics cost thousands of life’s.
    The only German advantage over Soviets were their discipline and professionalism of their commanders. However both of the leaders of the Germany and Soviet Union were more or less bloody military amateurs.
    UK and US send 50, 1 billion dollar military support to the Allied countries $31.4 billion went to Britain, $11.3 billion to the Soviet Union, $3.2 billion to France, $1.6 billion to China, and smaller sums to other Allies. The Soviet Union sent 2,2 billion dollars in return.
    Allied fleets lost a large amount of ships and sailors on their way to Soviet ports as they were hunted by German submarines. Even if the Soviets counted that only 4% of the allied Land lease was part of their economical surplus, 57% of the plane fuel came from allies, Soviets received more automobiles than they could build. A large part of railway track came from allies. Also the large amount of materials for military industry. True that Soviets almost did not use any of the allied supplied tank or airplane.

    But their weapons were built with allied resources. In military field the allied war in West did help Soviets to defeat the Germans. On 1943, when the Germans attacked Kursk, the allied landing in Sicily caused Hitler to cancel the attack on the eastern front. If the D-Day would fail or never occurred Germans would have enough resources to fight against Soviets all the way to 1946.
    THE MYTH of the Red Army veterans are heroes and all the accusations of atrocities are false or the victims deserved it. The local population in the liberated countries who did not greet the liberators are-nazi-supporters-and scoundrels

    At 12th Januar 1945 General Ivan Chernjachovsky commander of the third Belorussian front gave the following order: “Two thousand miles we have walked past to see the destruction of all that was dear to us. Now we are standing at the lands from where the aggressors attacked on us.
    We will not stop until we will clear it.
    There will be no mercy for no one as there was no mercy for us. You cannot demand to the Soviet Soldier that he will be merciful to the enemy. He is burning in flames of revenge and hate. The land of Fascists must become a wasteland as ours is now. Fascists must die just as our soldiers died!”. And the Soviet soldiers did their best to fulfill this order.
    Only the Fascists they killed and raped were not soldiers and members of the-naziparty-but women and children. Eastern Prussia, Silesia, Poland and even Serbia became a subject of rape, killings and looting. Even if there was a German crimes against Soviet population, it was on a smaller scale, plus the German soldiers and SS members were prohibited to rape because of the racial laws.
    The Holocaust in Soviet Union is a different story and it’s doubtful that Soviet Soldiers rape and killed to avenge the Jews. Antisemitism was no lesser in Soviet ranks than in German.
    Many of today’s last generation of the surviving veterans had little or no combat experience. The real heroes died on first lines of the battlefield in Soviet mass attacks. Their medal count does not manifest their bravery since the awarding of low rank medals, orders and badges are the part of the Soviet War cult.
    And the Soviet officers and generals who did nothing to stop the soviet soldiers from doing bad deeds are not worthy to be called heroes. We cannot call Poles, who knew what happened in 1939,
    Latvians who knew what happened in 1940 and others who resisted Soviet “liberation” fascists since the freedom that the Soviets brought was no better. Soviet Union had no plans for freedom of the Eastern Europe so it’s no wonder that today the Soviet liberation is not much appreciated.
    This is only a short list of the Soviet myths. Its requires books to break them apart. Many of them have been broken by Russians themselves. But Putin’s Russia continues its revisionist policy from Yeltsin democracy to Stalinism. So the Great Patriotic war is not only the myth its a religion a belief system on its own and its god is Stalin that still rules Russia.

    Russia did not lose 25 mill it was the soviet union and mostly people from Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Armenia and the other nations that was forced into the EVIL RUSSIAN SCUMMY USSR that was getting killed by the nazis NOT ethnic Russians !!!!!
    The ethnic Russians for the most part was in the NKVD shooting other soviets in the back to force them forward also most of the officer was ethnic Russian and ethnic Russians was in positions of administration NOT ONTHE FRONTLINE !!!!
    So no Russia did not FUCKING loose 25 mill of its people now did they ... !!!
    And for this Russian scum to claim and to take the honor, from the dead of other nations IS TYPICAL RUSSIAN AND DESPICABLE SCUM LIKE RUSSIAN ALWAYS DO !!!!

    Also let us not forget the fact the it was the Stalin and RuSSia that made it possible for Hitler to build up his nazi army by giving him iron-ore and other need goods from 1939-1941 the soviet union was the strongest and most important partner of nazi Germany ..It was only after June 1941 when Hitler turned on his good buddy Stalin and attacked the USSR that Stalin came running to the west for help and the west said yes ok we will let you fight with us they did this well knowing that Stalin helped Hitler build his army and also because the west was thinking in terms like my enemy's enemy is my friend policy and tactic
    Russians living in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I really think that the Russians aren’t the ones to lecture ANYONE about fascism, or anything else for that matter, especially since RuSSians was the ones that signed the pact with the-devil [nazigermany] and started World War II… and even today RuSSia are still glorifying Stalin... Hitlers good buddy in 1937-1941 Hitler and Stalin started ww2 together when they invaded Poland together.
    The RuZZians were the cowards who shot their own troops in the backs.
    YES they did shoot their own troops in the backs But they did NOT shoot ethnic Russians in the backs as most of that scum was officers and in logistics and the NKVD doing the shooting...
    The ethnic Russian scum was the ones that was shooting other Soviets in the back.....
    As Stalin did not trust Ukrainians (remember he had only 8 years before killed 10 mill of them in a genocide holodomor ) So what did Stalin do he made a purge and killed all officers of non ethnic Russians decent in the Army and replaced them with ethnic Russians and made all others that was not ethnic Russians in low level positions in other worlds as cannon fodder for the german artillery and targets for german bullets... the was the Ukrainians, Belorussians , Uzbeks , Moldovan’s ect ect ect .. this is who was fighting and dieing this is who was fighting the-nazi-not ethnic Russians they was in the safe jobs like NKVD ect ect ect ... back in the reserve army and as administrators ect ect..
    Why do you think they always say Russians died and not soviets died ?????
    They do this to cover up this facts I have stated above and for Russia to take the honor from the people who really did the fighting..Russians and Russia have no shame !!

    As an Englishman married to a Hungarian and know their culture well, I can say this:
    Communism, with it's Materialist Atheist ideology has had such psychological and spiritual damage. Unless someone truly takes the time to how it completely transformed their culture, it is hard to grasp.
    I would just try to say this; they are completely demoralised and cynical to any talk of "family", "progress", "liberty" and "morality". Marxist ideology completely destroyed all ties to family, religion and culture in favour of the State.
    It literally brain washed 3 generations on how religion and God are superstitions, that motherhood, marriage and the family are just means for the revolution. And the moral end of the revolution? Material pleasure and comfort.
    So any talk of anything above increasing your pay, material pleasure and comfort is alien to them. And because of this, they are mostly empty as all they have to live for is...

    The real reason for the shrinking of Russia is not the aftershocks of the Great Patriotic War. Russia grew under the Soviet Union in the post-war era. However, when it collapsed, the pro-natalist policies and social safety which Gorbachev started dismantling caused that many Russians who had free access to quality education and fully paid for healthcare now had to pay exorbitant amounts to get treated or to get their children in a good school. That added to the post-Soviet collapse of the economy in the Soviet republics caused unemployment, poverty, crime and violence, mortality, inequality to skyrocket. Hardly a situation where anyone would want to raise a big family. That is the main reason of Russia’s shrinking population.

    Russia's economy is in a better state than anywhere in Europe. Why on earth do they need population so badly? Their country is going through a boom. This seems like one of these poorly thought out veiled leftist videos advocating for globalism as though Russia could somehow benefit from the same disastrous mass migration that is destroying Europe.

    It's funny you compare Russia with countries that have bigger populations but can't feed their people. Russia, on the other hand, despite its economic sanctions, can feed her people and protect them militarily. Not to mention, has a bigger economy than those countries with big populations. Russia remains and will continue to be a superpower despite black propaganda from the west. It exerts military and political might in addition to dominating sports and doing relatively well economically despite US-led sanctions. So much for fear-mongering! Long live, Mother Russia! 😘🇷🇺

    You're missing a major demographic trend in this video, Russian TFR. It's the highest in Europe(besides France due to its huge Muslim population) and is trending higher in the past decade. Russia's population is shrinking because the Soviet 60's-90's children had low birthrates while today's Russians have more than any other true European country. The shrink is temporary.

      Yeah when your enemy signs a peace agreement and so you don't develop your military, while your enemy develops state of the art military tech and then invades in one day. You're gonna need all the men you can get.

    Why did u target specificaly Russia, this video could to all western world! Most european country will have a shrinking population without mass immigratoon. The fertility of russian poeople is better than most western country. Give me a break with rusian demographic collapse. The only major demographic problem of russia is mainly his afican lifespan. The country perform so poor for a modern country. Also, most lands in russia isn't inhabitable, but natives, no one will settle here.

    Russians are faced with the same problem that Japanese are facing. Despite a strong industrial and technological base, Russians are suffering from lack of development, isolation and corruption in government administration. I like President Putin's style - but clearly the officers much below him are not able to deliver on the vision that he has for Russia.
    The same is the case with Russia's little sister - Ukraine. Culturally they both are like twins. It is almost sad to see them both fight when they both have given so much as USSR to the global industry. My home country has immense goodwill and love for both of them, thanks to their industrial support when not one else came forth to help us post independence.
    Time for slavic people to realise that they are one and the same and to set aside tiny differences and become one.

    WW2 decimated many countries, probably more so Germany than Russia, their country divided, invaded by USSR and NATO countries. Yet the hardships resolved one by one, and they are one of the healthier nations in all of European continent. I don`t like when things get political for no apparent reason, but, Russia`s downfall is clearly due to political reasons, namely socialism. And with distancing themselves, their population seems to grow again.

    I don’t know if this has any material difference on the issue. Around here we have a bunch of Russian immigrants that we didn’t get just a few years ago. I know that is just a example but if it is happening throughout the world it may have affect on the Russian population. Just a thought.

    This is discusting misinformation. The real decimator of the Russian commie-socialism, was Stalin's mass murders of his own people & slave labor. Of course our MSM, including U-Tube, wouldn't acknowledge or allow something like this to be known so they put this crap out. Furthermore, birth control-abortions were also a matter of state population policy. decreased.

  • Ali Labeeb Alkoka

    I honestly think that population declining that started in the 1960s has something to do with the fact that birth control pills were released then. It probably also help prevent a lot of births in Western countries as well.
    It helped with the 1990s as well.

  • 2-bit Jesus

    I think another factor is the effect that post industrialization has had on Russia as that factor has cut into every developed country's pop. Also in the coming decades if population decline is not reversed Russia wont be able to field a big enough army to defend all that land. That is why Russia is acting so aggressive on its periphery (Georgia/Ukraine) ot is trying to set up buffers from the west.

      well, its never too late for islamisation of western Europe.
      my point is that western European ethnic groups are shrinking and probably even faster then eastern European ones. Gay marriages, female emancipation, legal abortions... perhaps the overall numbers of german citizens are nnot falling, but when it comes to Fritzes, Hanses, Ottos and such - they are becoming minority in their own country.

      Sounds like Arabization and Islamization is happening 1200 years later than it should have. The battlefield of Tours France stopped the Islamic Arab armies from conquering Europe.
      Immigration does not hide the truth of population declining in those countries. It is just that Russia can not get anyone to move there either.
      Germany has Turks, Syrians, and Etc lining up across Europe and the EU trying to get into Germany.

    A possible solution might be to treat Siberia as we are now talking about the colonization of Mars. Railroads already exist through the territory and if the Russian leadership would allow other countries to help them, a combination of Russian nationals and immigres could settle in Siberia with governmental housing, food, and fuel to initiate the process. Then exploration for oil, gas, ores, as well as lumber could be exploited. Factories building products for the new labor force to earn livings would be needed, of course. And large enclosed green houses heated by solar, wind, and natural gas, etc. could help produce plant materials as well as areas to raise cows, cattle, and other animals for food production. And as the earth warms, the Siberian
    yearly temperatures may also moderate. Just a thought.

      Yeah and then most countries with investment power get sanctioned by USA. Europeans except Poland are quite open to cooperating with Russia economically and to resolve the tensions through trade and economic integration. But till they are under US colonisation, they won't be able to.
