26% of children live in Russia below the poverty line. Such data were presented by Rosstat based on the results of the study. Thanks to the method of calculating the numbers, these are relevant only for the 2017 of the year, but experts are sure that the results of 2018 and 2019 will not differ for the better.

Most of the families whose income is below the subsistence minimum live in rural areas. According to 45 studies,% of all village children grow up in poverty. The second indicator is large families. 52,2% of minors are brought up by low-income parents who have three or more babies.

According to RBC, economists warn of a “poverty trap” that a quarter of Russian children might fall into. Lack of money for a decent education and development leads to the fact that as adults they cannot compete in the labor market and also get low-paid jobs. Thus, the circle closes. Children of poor parents begin to raise their own offspring in poverty.

The Ministry of Labor said that about 80% of low-income Russian families are families with children. The department noted that the authorities in order to defeat poverty must support parents with many children.
