You forgot the fact that the Soviet Union killed 20 million of their own citizens

It's also because their national philosophy/dream/hope/story was crushed by reality in the 20th century. With the downfall of the sovietunion their national soul died aswell, there's nothing inspiring and motivating the society to engage and thrive. This can be observed with many countries in present and also past. Examples: -Germany -Ottoman Empire after 17th century -Europe and the west generally, except Canada, USA and Australia -Japan -etc. Countries with a believable future story and hope (the population buys its governments tales and visions) will generally experience exponential population growth: -Iran -Turkey -Iraq -Israel -Nigeria -Pakistan -Bangladesh -South korea -etc.

It's sad and depressing to see the long lasting effects of the wars on a civilization. All that massive loss of lives, is simply irreplaceable. The violence done just for insane land expansion or promoting an ideology is never a justifiable thing! The earlier we understand this, the closer we're to the better world. Peace.

The solution is obvious. Offer incentives to the Russian people that will make them more likely to have children, just as Viktor Orbans government in Hungary has done. I assume they don't want to flood Russia with muslim immigrants the way the fools of Western Europe have done, so this offers a simple alternative answer. I forget exactly what the inducements Viktor offered were but I am sure you can look that up easily enough on the internet yourselves.

I see Putin and I know all I need to about Russia. Putin's aspiration of global military power is destabilizing to Europe and the world. Russia is a gas station run by gangsters, posing as a world power. The worse shape Russia is in, the safer the world is.

The hospitable land of a country has practically nothing to do with the population it has / can have. Russia has lots of hospitable land in the European part of the country anyway. Immigration is an artificial way of increasing a county's population as it takes centuries to assimilate, if they ever do and that's a big if. People that don't actually feel part of a country, create much more problems. But why is Russia's stagnate population a problem? Since the 1900 they have been increasing very slowly, which can actually be considered the way to go as more people means more resources needed etc etc + environmental issues. It's not like Russia has a population of a few 100's of thousands.

The reason for population declines are not 2nd and 3rd echos of a war but Russia's extremely gynocentric social system and politics which elevates women socially above men and thus discourages them from having children at replenishment rate.

They didn't mention one major reason why people have always been leaving Russia... COMMUNISM. Nobody with a brain likes it. All the smart people leave for Capitalism, i.e. freedom. Duh! While losers like socialism/communism. And remember, communism and socialism are identical except one has a dictator and doesn't hide what it is.
