Not really. These are people who lived through a very tough time. The transition from the Soviet Union to the modern Russian state was not easy. Things initially went from bad to worse and quite a few Russians were yearning for the stability of the old Soviet Union and some even wanted Stalin back. Putin came on the seen and he was very effective in harnessing the anarchy that was slowly happening and he did get results. Things have been looking up so the Russian youths started thinking more positively towards the future and have started breeding again.
BTW, Hitler had a similer effect on the post WWI German population.
