russia is encouraging people to have more children
coming from India, this is amazing to me..
In his seventh state-of-the-nation address on Wednesday Vladimir Putin highlighted the necessity of solving several urgent but long-standing Russian problems — first of all of boosting birth rate. There was a “consensus in society” that Russia’s falling population must be addressed and Putin indicated the government would take measures to encourage young couples to have more children, he said.
