Coming Russian Decline

in population, that is....

Power Line has a good post about and link to a Washington Times article on the future of Russian demographics. According to the post, at this birth rate, there will be 1/2 as many Russians in 2050 than today.

How 'Russian' will it be, when they aren't making any more Russians? I wonder who will be replacing them? Let's see, what cultures and nationalities are on their borders....

I can't blame the Russian people though: I wouldn't want a "Putin" future for my kid either.
