1. It’s raining… women

Though a man, Vladimir Putin, rules Russia, men are outnumbered in the country. In 2014, Russia’s State ­Statistic Committee published a report that showed that there were 10.5 million more women living in Russia than men.

According to a member of the Russian parliament, Tatyana Moskalkova, there is an equal number of boys and girls at birth. However, at around the age of 30, males begin to pass away, falling victim to, among other things, industrial trauma, war, and car accidents.
