Turning it around
Just wait until the mass migration of social conservatives from Øbamastan.
The mortality rate in Russia is still sickeningly high compared to most countries. You know something’s wrong when a fairly well-developed country like Russia has a mortality rate comparable to Somalia, Chad, Zimbabwe and Mali.
Russia is a big country with many different nationalities. I suspect the European part of Russia isn’t that bad compared to the rest of the country.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 26% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
Chrietian conservatives tired of being libelled as “homophobic”...seems to be a rebirth of religious freedom over there.
How many of the little bundles of joy are named “Mohammed”?
The Dagastanis are working to reverse that trend in Russia.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Alcohol is a main problem affecting mortality there. Heart deceased, traffic and workplace incidents, homicides at drank disputes, deaths from being exposed to outdoor environment in winter etc.
Russian are in their another attempt to restrict this habit nationwide and it seems like working.
In fact European part and stans are the most derpessive. Apart from two capitals, I think West Siberia, Middle Urals and Krasnodar region are the most developed. West Siberia is due to a mineral extraction, Urals is somehow manages to maintain extensive manufacturing and Krasnodar is an agriculture powerhouse. Moscow and St.Petersburg are ok from their share redistributing wealth created in these places to the rest of Russia an their 3rd world pals.
The Slavs in Russia are all drunk. Other minorities? Not so.
