The present demographic problems of Russia are well known. But what are the forecasts on this issue? For the purpose to answer to this question the author examines thoroughly the origins of the current demographic situation of the country. The author shows that demographic crisis occurred at least in the middle of 1960s during the transition to the narrowing reproduction of population. The analysis of the demographic development tendencies of Russia brings him to the conclusion that the existing forecasts of the Russian demographic future despite their unfavourability are still too optimistic. At the same time he believes that there is a possibility to change the trajectory of the demographic development. In his opinion, the working out and conducting of the effective demographic policy allow to convert this possibility into the reality. The aims of such policy should be the return of Russia to the simple reproduction of population and the elimination of the demographic waves.
