According to the Director of the Institute of demography of the Higher school of economy Anatoly Vishnevsky, in some regions of Russia the birth of children at a young age is considered normal. “It all depends on the environment in which he lives, as parents are, you can’t deny, and it is not necessary to forbid to give birth, it is also impossible to deny that abortion is a matter of choice in the family and the girl herself,” said the expert in the Agency.
In June, the Deputy Director of the Department of health of the Vladimir region Julia Arsenin said that the Russians should not choose education at the expense of motherhood.
