The USSR in 1989 had a population of 293 million. Now, Russia has a population of 143 million.
no USSR stands for UNITED STATES of SOVIET RUSSIA
to answer your question OP; after the collapse of Communism in Russia birthrates fell, access to medication/hospitals fell, food production fell, millions emigrated as mail order brides/mafias (check all new modern crime films Russians=mafia now) and well many Russians just left russia because its shit and communists werent there to keep them there anymore.
The dissolution of the USSR was an act of war, an effective semi-genocide.
Part of that population resides on the other republics, and if I stand correct the only ones with a positive population growth are the muslim ones in central asia
>USSR stands for United Soviet Socialist States, which encompasses Russia and all of the annexed countries in Europe
Oh my god I knew this board was this but to this point it is unbelievable. Do you guys just pull shit out of your ass and call it knowledge ?
It's "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics" and it does not encompass "all the annexed countries in Europe" except if you mean it in a shitty teleological way like "All the land the USSR had, it had"
Funny, looks like a salad to me.
I'm assuming salad-eating is a sin in the eyes of that pissed-looking cat behind her.
Which means this comment may just be a longer version of the Absolute Madwoman comment mentioned previously.
>grasshopper named kevin
Are you fucking serious?
I don't even know where to start.
Grasshoppers aren't carnivores, they eat grass and shit. That's alot of people for one grasshopper to eat, given its short life span. And at that point in history, it was illegal to name insects. You're clearly a fucking idiot, probably voted for obama.
The UK in 1922 had a population of 458 million . Now, the UK has a population of 63 million.
>dfw this is actually true
