Are Russians Choosing Extinction?

Power Line has an interesting post today about Russians and how they are not reproducing enough children to replenish their current population. In fact, so few Russians are having children that the population will be cut in half by 2050.

This implies a rate of depopulation greater, on a percentage basis, than when the Black Death killed around one-third of Europe’s residents. Villages, towns, and even cities will be deserted and cease to exist. Or else they will be occupied by someone other than the Russians.

Here’s the Washington Times article that Power Line sourced.
