 Putin urges to reset Russia's demographic policy

The demographic situation in Russia has deteriorated once again so comprehensive measures need to be taken to reset the state policy in this field, preventing a decline in the country’s population, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, addressing a meeting of the Coordination Council on the implementation of the 2012-2017 National Strategy of Actions for Children.

"Today, the demographic situation has deteriorated mostly due to natural causes, this trend does not come as a surprise," Putin stressed, adding that it was another one in a series of demographic declines occurring during the Great Patriotic War and in the mid-1990s.

"We need to take comprehensive measures in order to stabilize the situation and prevent a decline in Russia’s population in the next ten years," TASS cited the president as saying.
