Window on Eurasia — New Series: Russias Population Prospects Now So Dire that Scholar Calls for a Cheka for Demographics

Paul Goble

Staunton, December 2 In an open letter to Vladimir Putin, demographer Yury Krupnov says that the demographic situation in Russia is rapidly becoming so dire that the Kremlin can only reverse it be creating an Extraordinary Demographic Commission or a Cheka for Demography.

Krupnov says that he fully supports Putins call for doing more to promote Russias demographic well-being but says that he cannot fully agree that the Kremlin leaders idea of providing funds to families on the birth of even their first child will be sufficient or even effective (ruskline.ru/news_rl/2017/12/02/my_obvalno_padaem_v_demograficheskuyu_yamu/).

Giving mothers 10,000 rubles (150 US dollars) a month after the birth of a child, he says, wont lead more Russians to have more children and thus will not save the country from a deepening demographic catastrophe, one brought on Krupnov says by the failure of the government to act on Putins 2012 call for making three-child families the norm.

Instead, he says, the Russian authorities have behaved in ways that make childless or only one-child families the norm for Russians.  To reverse that, Krupnov argues, the government should instead provide funds for those who have a third, fourth or fifth child in order to prompt people to have the first and second in order to get support for more later.

According to Krupnov, who has long beaten the drums for larger families, Russia is rapidly falling into a demographic hole which will be just as deep if not deeper than the hole of the end of the 1990s, when the expression, the Russian cross, emerged.

Krupnov says he fears that officials have been misleading Putin about just how bad things are and are likely to become.  As a result, the real horror of the situation is not just how serious things have become but rather the failure of the authorities to discuss it seriously and not engage in ideological fantasies about supposed improvements.

In this extraordinary situation, he continues, I consider it critically necessary to organize a serious, deep and open discussion of what demographic policy the country needs and via this to sharply push forward and deepen the understanding of the demographic problem as a priority for the country.

To that end, Krupnov suggests the formation of an Extraordinary Demographic Commission (CheDemKa) which in the course of approximately a year could come up with an adequate complex of measures for the demographic salvation of the country.  Such measures given the seriousness of the problem will necessarily be extraordinary.

Today, Krupnov says, it should be obvious to all that the main problem of the country is in demography and thus is it is entirely appropriate to call for an Extraordinary Commission to address that problem.

Putins speech earlier this week has led others to focus on just how bad the demographic situation in Russia now is, a situation in which the declining number of women in prime child-bearing ages is combining with changing family size preferences and the impact of the economic crisis to drive birthrates down.

See for example the discussions of the problem at svpressa.ru/blogs/article/187512/,

nakanune.ru/news/2017/12/02/22491294/and nakanune.ru/articles/113511/. But three things about Krupnovs letter are striking. First, he attacks the government in order to try to get Putin on his side, the latest of the good tsar-bad boyar view that l so much of Russian thinking.

Second, by talking about a Cheka, he equates the demographic problem now to the threats to the Soviet state in its earliest days, an equation that will likely lead more people to focus on the demographic disaster that Russia is facing and that there are very few means the government has at its disposal to address.

And third, and most important, by calling for a Cheka in this area, Krupnov has appealed to one of Putins core views on how to act: not by gradual effort but by extraordinary intervention, an approach that has its roots in the Soviet past but that continues to define his approach, however ineffective it is likely to be in this area as well as in many others.

Voice of America: McMaster: ‘Increasing’ Possibility of War with North Korea
The White House national security advisor says the  possibility of war with impoverished, but nuclear-armed North Korea is “increasing every day.” “There are ways to address this problem short of armed conflict,” H.R. McMaster said Saturday, “but it is a race because he’s getting closer and closer and there’s not much time left,” in a reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. North Korea announced last week that it can now hit the U.S. mainland with a warhead, after its test-firing of a new intercontinental ballistic missile. Media reports say the Pentagon is looking at U.S. west coast sites where additional defense systems can be installed, following the North Korean threat of a strike on the U.S.    The Reuters news agency says the defenses would likely include Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missiles, similar to those deployed in South Korea. “The newly developed intercontinental ballistic missile Hwasong-15 has been successfully test-launched according to the political decision and strategic judgement of the Workers’ Party of Korea, read an announcer Wednesday on North Koreas state-run KRT television. Following previous launches, the North has claimed its projectiles can hit any part of the continental United States, but this would be the first time it would be able to do so with this new type of upgraded missile, which both North Korean and U.S. officials said could fly higher than the ones the country has tested earlier. McMaster urged China to slap a total oil embargo on North Korea, as a way of deterring fuel missile launches. “You can’t shoot a missile without fuel,” he said. North Korea, meanwhile, characterized the U.S. and South Korea as “warmongers” Sunday, a day ahead of the U.S. and South Korea’s largest-ever joint air exercises.     The North’s ruling party Rodong newspaper said Sunday the joint exercises are “an open, all-out provocation against” North Korea that could “lead to a nuclear war any moment.” It is not clear if Pyongyang has mastered the capability of miniaturizing and mounting a nuclear warhead on an ICBM, which South Korean officials have said could happen within a matter of months.   Analysts also question North Koreas technical mastery of ICBM re-entry, which plays a key role in targeting.  In the event of a launch at the U.S. mainland, U.S. missile defense systems would be employed.
