Putin Will Give 1 Mn Rubles to Women Who Bear 10 Kids to Revive Population. But With Only One Condition

Russia is facing a concerning decline in its population which is 

why Putin revived this week a Soviet-era award established in

1944 to encourage Russians to expand their families.

This “Mother Heroine” award for those women who have ten

or more children plus financial incentives as well as social 

recognition in an effort to spur population growth.

This award will provide Russian citizens with a one-time

payment of one million rubles ($16,500) after their tenth child 

turns one year old — but only if the other nine children survive.

Other measures that he applies to increase the population are 

included better health care for women, financial assistance, and 

making it more difficult for married couples to divorce.
