Rússia declínio recorde de população em 12 meses
October 14, 2021 - A Rússia sofreu o seu maior declínio populacional em tempo de paz de que há memória, segundo uma análise das estatísticas oficiais.
Russia’s natural population – determined by the difference between the country’s death rate and birth rate – declined by 997,000 between October 2020 and September 2021, demographer Alexei Raksha calculated.
The sharp fall comes as Russia, which has one of the world’s highest Covid-19 death tolls, battles a fourth wave of the pandemic. The country has recorded at least 660,000 excess deaths since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
