    If war 70 years ago caused their problems then why isn't Korea, Japan, Germany, China or Poland in the same situation? They all lost massively yet recovered. It's not just a bad war but a social system that discourages innovation, choice, risk taking and thinking outside the box. She stressed uniformity and conformity above all along with massive military spending of her last reserves instead of R&D and infrastructure. Because she rejected markets - the best tool for efficiency and low prices - she's never produced anything anyone wants other than vodka and weapons.

    There's no way to say it nicely: Russia can't do anything. Germans build their roads, their distribution system is run by Chinese, buildings are built by foreigners, its vehicles cannot compete outside the country, etc. 2018 was the first year more food items from Russia were on the shelf than any other country....but this was due to a ban on foreign food export. LOL WWII is an easy, quick answer but when we were there we were told repeatedly, "We don't want children in this kind of country." The scariest aspect is that as her Slavic population declines her Muslim population continues to grow.

    China or India should buy parts of Siberia. So it can be habitated. Siberia is warming up and so much agricultural land will become available more FOOD for everyone

    • DSRReacts

      +John Smith I know it is, i said it would become an economic superpower aswell as a military superpower.
      Im not saying transform all of siberia 50% is more than enough the other parts are mountains and rough terrain which is not suitable.
      Also Brazilian Amazon Rainforest is being replanted and China is somehow changing a dessert into a Forrest and India is just planting trees everywhere.
      Its Africa that isn't pulling its weight.
      I can tell you a few underpopulated countries. Such as Canada and Russia.
      But you are right there are many overpopulated countries however like i said if we feed and educated the third world the population will stop growing exponentially and will slow down.

    • John Smith
      John Smith 2 days ago

      +DSRReacts I thought Russia was already military super power?
      Any country with over 20 ICBMs is basically a uninvadable super power.
      No country is under populated but many are overpopulated.
      You just can't replace all natural nature land and wildlife with farmland without a environmental consequence.
      When the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest is eventually chopped down people will notice a difference, and not in a good way like more food for more people.

    • DSRReacts
      DSRReacts 2 days ago

      +John Smith Why do you think i'm advocating population growth. If anything this will likely stop exponential population growth if food was no longer an issue then the world could focus on education which will result in the use of more condoms in 3rd world countries/continents like africa.

    • DSRReacts
      DSRReacts 2 days ago

      +John Smith Your right a countries can't just pick up and move to another country. However given enough time you will be surprised.

      I'm not suggesting moving a few million people but maybe just 50'000 Chinese and Indians to do menial farm work.

      Also there's a lot of documentaries and videos demonstrating how its very possible for Siberia to warm up and become massive farm lands.

      Russia would not only be a military super power but also rival Europe's economy with a super agriculture based economy.

      Russia would make billions potentially trillions outsourcing labourers from china and India to work on farms inside Russia's Siberia.

      Also BRICS nations will probably become visa free for its own citizens once each economy is up to each others standards.

    • John Smith
      John Smith 2 days ago

      +DSRReacts A country's population just can,t pick up and move to another country because they have a overpopulation issue and the north,s population is manageable.
      Like Napoleon and Hitler found out you just do not enter Russia.
      The worlds population grows 1 billion every ten year now. By the time Global warming melts Siberian in 80 years things will already be hitting the fan.
      If the US had 1.3 billion like China and India rather than 325 million it would also be a environmental mess that could not feed it's self.
      Population growth can not go on forever, mother nature has a natural limiter for that and it's called "starvation".
      Even if Siberia melted I think Tundra soil is not fertile for farming.

    Russia population is perfectly normal and comfortable, people are living in luxury with plenty of wild nature around as people should. Much of the rest of the World is overpopulated, uneducated people are breeding too much and living in misery. It is not normal, humans should live in harmony with nature. Russia, Canada, Australia and maybe some other countries is how people should live. Not like Bangladesh breeding like cockroaches.

    Please base your videos on real data next time. The population of Russia is not shrinking right now, it's growing due to migration. And the birthrate isn't low due to the economy, but because people who are 20-30 years old right now have been born in the 90's of which there aren't many. In terms of purchasing power the Russian economy is actually growing. The statistics for "largest economy" is based on GDP in USD. Russia doesn't have USDollars, so to compare all countries the number gets converted using the constantly changing exchange rate... Not to speak about GDP being a very bad number to quantify economy: if you just make everything more expensive then your GDP grows, if you invest money into bullshit then GDP grows, if I sell you a loaf of bread for 2 billion dollars and you sell me a cup of tea for 2 billion dollars then our GDP will grow 4 billion!

  • Michelangelo Buonarroti

    I DISAGREE. And there's simple proof why this is wrong. The Answer is China. Ok, yeah, in 1900 China was already the most populated place on earth, BUT the Qing China of 1900 was significantly larger than the modern China is, much like Russia. However, *however*, China has had it's people die in masses from 1912 to 1947. That's the Warlord period and it was marked by constant war. From 1939 to 1945 alone this cost the country 20 million people, and in total the deaths of non natural causes, particularly violence and disease was unnaturally high, especially in 1938 when the second Sino-Japanese war started going very brutal. And then, just 10 or so years later another 60 million were killed through indirect actions by Mao. Sooo, yeah not really making any sense here, why is China still growing, even though it had more deaths over a longer period of constant dying? The Answer is the difference in the Communist systems of the Soviet Union and China. China was less developed and the Socialists there gave the people work, even though there was serious mismanagement at times (it would've happened anyway). But in the Soviet Union the leaders kept their populace poor, and they destroyed the rich agricultural base of the Union by killing most of the "better farmers", leaving behind only peasants. Also they force marched Russia into heavy industry, but this created an unbalanced economy. If there's one thing to blame, then it is the communists.
    To back up this claim, another example: Germany. Germany suffered a whopping 9 million out of 85 million (and this is counting Austria and Chechia, including the Sudetenland, which weren't fully part of Germany and also had lower percentage rates in terms of people serving in the armed forces). And still Germany today has 80 million compared to 70 million 1939, and that on a bigger area. And you can still see the disparity in population distribution, even though especially Brandenburg and Mecklemburg-Vorpommern are perfectly suited to accommodate a lot of people. It's just the pyramid of population growth (or demographic pyramid I think). The richer the country, the better the chances for population growth, except if things cost to much, then people will refrain to have 2 or more babies, that's why a lot of western and other industrialised nations are experiencing population shrinks they have to combat by immigration.
    Also you could also make this arguement that this could happen to any other country in any other period of time.

    Another problem Russia has, is a immigration problem. The Russian Jews have been leaving Russia in droves since WWII, and heading to NYC and Miami. Thousands of Christian Russians are leaving and immigrating to Sunny Isles, Florida and it's surrounding areas. A lot stay, some are here to give birth and create a anchor baby. Russian people are also going to Canada and EU countries. If this keeps happening, they are in big trouble. Germany may want another crack at them.

Stop admiring Mr.Pooo, and stop saying that Trump is a Russian agent (he not agent of mr. poo, vice versa, mr.poo agent of evil secret world government - call it illuminati whatever).

    😭🙁💔😔 R.I.P Russia’s population. I want to visit Russia and this probably won’t happen while because Russia’s population will probably go completely extinct in 2200 if they have the population collapse of 1945 and 1991.

    Try updating your stereotypes. Russia's population gas not been going down continuously. Russian birth rates bypassed the US in 2011 and the population has grown naturally for several years..albait a very small growth but grown. Add in 2.5 mil from Crimea, 3-4 million more from Ukraine and another 2-3 million from other parts and its not shrinking.

    Wouldn't someone born in 1923 Russia have to endure, in addition to the Nazis, Stalin's farm collectivization which killed many people.

    Your chart of sizes of countries is incorrect, I think you have the placement rate but in square kilometres it says United States is bigger than Canada, it isn’t candles or second largest country according to land mass.

    It's not only WW2, but more about abortions. For several years, there were more abortions in the USSR than there were births.

    Haha Russia Shrinking! Dream it! Look at Bulgaria we already lost 1/3 of our population and its continuing to shrink even faster! BULGARIA IS SHRINKING! Bulgaria is the country which made the FIRST EVER computers, The FIRST AUTOMATIC gear box, The yogurt, the Perfumes, The Cyrillic alphabet (which Russians use so technically they write with the Bulgarian letters). Bulgaria also SPREAD CHRISTIANITY ACROSS EUROPE AND RUSSIA! The Bulgarian folklore is the BIGGEST ON THE WORLD! Not USA's not French not Italian not Roman! BULGARIAN FOLKLORE IS THE BIGGEST! Bulgaria was very strong country in almost its WHOLE EXISTENCE it was EMPIRE! It was CENTRAL POWER! Before WW2 Bulgaria was the 4TH STRONGEST COUNTRY IN EUROPE WHILE IN THE PERIODS 632-1000 AC IT WAS THE 3RD STRONGEST COUNTRY IN EUROPE! At some point PLISKA (thens capital of Bulgaria) was bigger then CONSTANTINOPLE! Bulgaria many times defeated Russia, France and Great Britain in WW1! When Bulgaria was freedomed from Turks after the Ottoman Enslavement which lasted 500 years the Bulgarian culture and population WAS NOT AFFECTED AND WAS 100% PRESERVED! EVEN IT INFLUENCED ON OTHER COUNTRIES! The Old Bulgarians created the country China and the Chinese Wall was created from Chinese people to be protected from the Bulgarians. India was also created by Bulgarians known as the Delhis Kingdom! Thats the reason why still there are completely white people in india and China! Also Hungary was created by Bulgaria by our Kanasuvigi (ruler title) Krum! Serbia was created when the 2 sons of our Ruler spread Bulgaria so the younger one known as Vesislav and later assimilated as Višeslav created his own kingdom called Serbia. Bulgaria gave culture to Russia, Romania, Serbia, North Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia even Ukraine. The first ones who owned Crimea were not Russians neither Ukrainians! The first who owned Crimea were BULGARIANS! Imagine this RICH COUNTRY IS NOW SHRINKING AND ITS THE FASTEST SHRINKING NATION IN THE WORLD! IF THAT CONTINUES THAT WAY AFTER 10-20 YEARS THESE RICH BULGARIANS WILL BE PART OF THE HISTORY! SO DONT TELL ME RUSSIA IS SHRINKING!
