MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The number of Russians aged from 14 through 30 will decrease by 11 million to 25 million by 2023, deputy head of the Ministry of Sport, Tourism and Youth’s department for youth policy and public relations Dmitry Vityutnev said at the Russian Social Forum on Friday.
“Russia has 36.6 million citizens aged from 14 through 30 at present. The number was 38.4 million only two years ago,” he said. “The decline will continue until 2023,” he added.
A cause of this situation is the meager birth rate, he said. “There is no other way but to develop the youth policy and take care of every young person,” he added.
Meanwhile, Russia has no youth policy law or other normative acts regulating this sphere.
“There are regional laws in 72 federation constituents, which relate to the youth policy, but that is not enough,” Vityutnev said.
