Vladimir Putin ridiculed after demanding Russians have more sex to halt declining population
Daily Mail ^ | 2/13/2012 | Will Stewart

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was mocked by his own countrymen today after urging Russians to start having more sex to put a stop to the country's declining population. In one of his more controversial presidential election campaign pledges, Putin vowed to give cash incentives to mothers who have a third child, to help encourage more births. Russia is the largest geographical country in the world but its 142 million population is smaller than both Pakistan and Bangladesh. Putin, who served two consecutive presidential terms between 2000 and 2008 followed by his current term as prime minister, warned that the current steady population decline could see 50 million fewer Russians by 2050 to just 107million people. The Russian Prime Minister, who is now seeking his third presidential term in the March election, declared: 'We are facing the risk of turning into an ‘empty space’ whose fate will not be decided by us.' 'The historic price of the choice between action and inaction is nearly 50 million human lives over the next 40 years.' Since Putin first came to power in 2000 the population has decreased by 2.5 million Russians so the Prime Minister has made increasing the country's birth rate through Government incentives one of his key election pledges. He vowed to offer more free kindergarten places, cheaper housing, and a £140 a month benefit bonus to mothers who have a third child, in a bid to boost the population size to 154million people. His latest plans also propose action to stop chronic alcohol and drug abuse, in addition to easing immigration curbs, which he had only just tightened.

It's a brave decision. Europe and the US, of course, have no interest in the survival of their own culture and traditions. You can laugh at Putin, but the Russians still have the will to defend their culture. We can only defend the culture of others whilst our own slowly sinks into meaninglessness.

Obama is demanding just the opposite. Free birth control, no more babies.

Having more sex is only one (but a very important) step.

1. Get OFF vodka!!!!

2. Become VERY Orthodox!

3. Get married in an Orthodox Church, crowns and all!

4. Have more sex, without contraception or abortion!

5. Raise your children as Orthodox Christians, beginning from their early Baptism!

Then Russia will have what it really needs—an increase in the Russian Orthodox (NOT muslim, NOT communist/atheist) population!!!!

Russia shares borders with China, whose population is huge and has the opposite problem, overpopulation and rapid growth.

Putin is concerned about being overrun by the Mongol hordes. And he's right. I'm sure China would love to expand.

I’m with you, brother. Hasn’t Putin supported the Orthodox Church?

They polled Russian women on the qualities they wanted in a mate and the results were as follows:

1. They bathed.

2. They had better jobs than they did.

3. They did not strike them.

The women should REALLY start with “they’re not drunks”! Nor should they be drunks themselves!

Well stated. When Russia sees large parts of Siberia falling to the Chinese because they can’t find enough Russians to field and army, they will remember Putin’s words.

And NO, I don't really care that she never won a major tournament championship.

Easy for him to say, with his knockout model girlfriend. Contrast the attractiveness factor with a 225 lb cement-hauling babushka.

Let me say though that when I last visited in 2005, Russia and Estonia between them had women that simply devastated the Swedes, Norwegians, and Danes.

Agree - but it would only be logical if that’s his next step if he gets power back. Just not a popular thing to say as a candidate.

You are absolutely correct. Vodka is killing Russian men. Most die before age 60. And Putin knows that capitalism needs growth. That means thay need more babies. Lots more.

He needs to change the country into one where women have the attitude that it is a good place to bring a child into the world.

I also suspect he is watching the birth rates of Muslim women living in Russia.

Maybe what they need is sex education training for their 5 year olds. That seems to be the liberal solution to everything.

Isn't Russia that place where abortion is synonymous with birth control? I seem to remember watching a documentary on this once and one interview with a young woman stuck in my mind because she rather candidly mentioned something about having already had 22 abortions.. or something like that. I believe the official ‘stats’ are that there are 5 or 6 million abortions are year and only about 2 million live births.

After multiple abortions, it can be difficult for a woman to carry to term. Basically, it acts as both short and long-term birth decline.

Abortion and Contraception are the problem.
Not lack of sex.

The selfish cultures are self destructing and only seek to encourage the third world to do the same, as though that is a solution.

The way things are going in this country Putin should be considering an incentive for Americans to move there.

I have just as much access to vodka as any Russian. I can go out right now and fill my trunk with bottles of vodka. But, guess what? I have no interest in doing so.

The problem with Russian men is not vodka. The problem is the despair for their futures that has them thinking that vodka is the solution. Men with goals and dreams, and hope that they can reach them, have little need for vodka.
