    Thanks for the support. But why do your words diverge from the words of the politicians whom you elect? I think you choose such people specifically, and then write your own comments, “I love Russia”. This is not so sincere, so in the West. Vote for politicians who want to be friends with us.

    Hi, FTD Facts, I am from Russia and I would like to add one important detail to your story! The second "fact" from the video says that the male population in my country is lower because of alcohol, but this is not the case; alcohol consumption in Russia is rather low, for example, they drink more in Germany and France, Ireland and the Czech Republic! And every year alcohol consumption decreases, it can be checked in Wikipedia and other sources. I am offended by the fact that you blame the demographic problem on the alcoholic, it is not cool and not true. Thank!

    long live russia as a" super power"the world needs at least 2 of those.
    only one super power is too dangerous to peace
    let us assume that Putin is guilty of all he's accused of.
    Where would Russia be today without Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.
    long may He Be.

    As I know very well, that Vladimir Putin is now the worst Dictator in the World, I would never put one footstep in this corrupt Country, where political opposition land each election in Jails, Fuck this Dictator Putin. He has never forgiven Germany for the Break down,of the Berlin wall, as he was a KGB Agent in East Germany.

  • Саня Граблин

    Don't be surprised, Dave, but now this country is dying out. The current authorities are eating up what remains of the Soviet Union. There are almost no new inventions, science is in poverty, and only those projects on which money can be stolen are promoted. More and more people began to eat out of the garbage dumps, the salary of $ 300 a month is considered good, and the pensions are even less - about $ 80 on average. There is no support for young people here - young specialists are not needed by anyone - experience is needed everywhere, and where does it come from if no one takes a job without him? Only the thieves in power live well, and their friends, or those who do not shun crimeliness, and those who have a conscience is not clear (if there is one at all.) This country quickly and surely turns into a branch of hell on Earth. Not everyone has the opportunity to escape from here. Half of the population was driven into credit bondage, and the second half was so zombied by the TV that they were no longer able to correlate the real reality and created by propagandists. In general, neither the prospects nor the opportunity to leave. The population is declining (over the past twenty years, the population has decreased by almost 10 million people, even taking into account the influx of visitors from Central Asia), schools are closing (over 20 years, their number has decreased from 10 thousand to five), hospitals are closing, corruption goes off scale, authorities are doing what they want, the infrastructure is crumbling (according to last year’s data, 30 percent of the Soviet infrastructure is left, and very little is built, and it is not of the highest quality). There remains a solid window dressing and fanatical "patriotism", if you can call it that, imposed by the TV. Young people are fleeing the country, because its leadership itself signed the death sentence on Russia by its actions, and what you see now is pathetic bits of past greatness and power.

      +A K I do not remember asking for your opinion. There is an objective reality, which is confirmed by statistics - look into it, and see for yourself that everything I said is true. Unpleasant, but true! Watch this video here: tvclip.biz/video/oe8y6gksp38/video.html If you don’t understand what the grandfather says, I can send you the translation later. This is the whole country like this grandfather - all educated, all worked ... and as a result, eats dick without salt. If you have not been here, so sit silently and do not be clever!

    Russia have the most important resource of the future : clean water !
    Now have many resources (oil, metano, metals, food) and can become really a so rich country if invest in innovation and research.
    Russia is big and people is more educated in general (there are many people with a degree).
    Russia if invest more in technology and improve cooperation with european union , America and China can become one of more rich countries in the world !
    Russian girls are the most beautiful girls in the world in my opinion !
    And Russian nature is really amazing.
    Siberia is so nice to visit in particular in the winter.

    Much of the information used in this video is wrong by being very outdated, some based on the 1990s. First off, the population has grown a lot not only from births but immigration with Russia being the #2 country of the would in terms of accepting immigrants, 10,000,00 in less than 10 years
    The gender difference is primarily in older ages just like all countries. Up to age 30, there are more men then women like in almost every society on earth but in the 90s, elderly men died at earlier and earlier ages such that the median age of death dropped 12 years from the Soviet era when universal health care was the norm. Today, male life expectancy has surpassed the Soviet era high but still lags women.
    During the 90s and early 2000 motor vehicle accidents was the highest percent of deaths of men, and women, under 40 but seatbelt laws, and zero tolerance laws for drinking before driving laws have dramatically cut accident rates to the low average of the EU.
    In the 90s the accident death rate was as high as in the US in the mid-1950s. The laws were passed and immediately seemed to be complied with and the next year death rates dropped in 1/2 and continue to drop.
    The myth of Russians being drunks was partially true in the worst of the 90s when depression of both the economy and mood lead to older men who all lost their careers and options to work after the end of the USSR lead to a lot of alcohol-related illnesses and early death, particularly in rural areas where jobs just disappeared.
    But by 2000 the economy began to grow rapidly and alcohol use dropped steadily. The types of drinks changed also, imported beers became very popular in new pub culture and vodka became unpopular with young adults, who preferred beer, mixed drinks and now, dry varietal wines of the European style. It is VERY uncommon to see drunk people in bars or clubs, drinking is rather moderate compared to most of Europe and Scandinavia which have a more serious problem with young people drinking to excess. The World Health Organization lists Russia has a lower than the EU average of per capita alcohol consumption, 1/3 of that of Luxembourg and 1/2 the rate of Finland.
    One reason short time visitors believe there are more girls than boys is the nature of their socializing in city centers, almost all dance clubs, pubs or cafes/restaurants will have more girls than boys, the girls going out with their girlfriends in small groups while fewer men do that. Also, many of the jobs that tourists might be exposed to are women dominated. Russia has such equal rights, and for 100 years that any job or career is well represented by women and in fact more business heads or directors of universities are women than men so it is not uncommon for young girls to have more disposable income for social activities, shopping, and international travel.
    The actual news and reality about Russia is that it is a modern society with a great history, the most educated country on earth and very pleasant to live in. I have been in 91 countries and while I am an American, I find living in Russia for the last 19 years to be fun, exciting, social and very friendly without the terrible division, anger/fear and victim-society think back home. Russia is a lot happier and secure. The universal health care, paid vacations, free university, low taxes, low cost of living, no homelessness, great/cheap public transportation and very active accessible cultural life, I can't think of a better place to live, start a business or raise a family.

    Если бы это видео вышло 20 лет назад, факты полагаю были бы идентичны. А вообще жаль, что столько сказано про войну и прошлое в целом. Еще и стереотип об алкоголе: русские пьют не постояно, просто если пьют, то сразу много. Молодое поколение, кстати, пьет все меньше. Говоря о проблемах, главная из них это коррупция, в угоду которой издаются немыслимые законы и пропаганда.
