Russia's Shrinking Population

This is a very well-made video from the Population Research Institute, detailing the problem of Russia's declining population. Many countries may face a similar problem in the near future, but it seems to be especially bad in Russia, due to a high abortion rate, a low birth rate, and a relatively short life expectancy.

(Thanks to the Ruth Institute Blog for finding and posting this video.)
