Summary/Abstract: The article presents the results of an analysis of fertility trends in Russia based on the most powerful statistical and demographic tool known to the international community as period and cohort age- and parity-specific fertility tables, constructed for calendar years in retrospective of four decades (1979-2017), and for generations of women born from 1955 to 1990. The results are intended to strengthen an objective, comprehensive approach to interpreting historical and recent fertility trends in in Russia, as well as to a balanced assessment of the foreseeable prospects for changes in period and cohort total fertility. The author critically assesses the demographic results of the pronatalist policy in Russia over the past decade and calls into question the overly optimistic prospects for further increase in level of fertility, widespread in the Russian political elite.
