Russia: Death of a Nation

I just finished watching a fascinating and frightening documentary on Russia's demographic crisis (thanks for the tip Jaanus).

It's a look into the rapid decline of Russia's population which is compounded by poverty, drug use and disease. It also examines the growing nationalism in the country, the maker often compares what he sees to 1930's Germany.

It's made by Channel4 in the UK and is available on Google Video on also on some torrent sites.

It's a good watch if you're into Russia and makes you wonder how they'll turn things around internally.

Hey Andres,
you might want to take a look at baltlantis.com, its an ezine in english about estonia, founded by a fellow Canadian.
Might find some interresting discussions there, specially on the forum.
Keep up the good work here though, I enjoy reading your blog.

Arjan, thanks for the comment. I visit Baltlantis regularly and also post fairly often in their forums. See if you can figure out who I am there. :)
