Why Russia is dying

Russians are dying young. And younger. Why?

Also does totalitarianism require a large country? The author's theory is that for a country to be totalitarian it must be large enough to be able to lose population and still survive. Because the leaders have to do drastic things and to them the people are expendable. They don't care if people die.
