Population of Russian cities

The 2010 census recorded depopulation of Russia’s medium and smaller cities.

The population has grown in cities placed in areas with mineral resources; Khanty-Mansiysk - oil deposits (47%), Norilsk -  nickel deposits (30%), Yakutsk - diamonds (28%).

Nothing can stop Moscow and St. Petersburg from constant growth. The Russian government decided to increase the Moscow's territory by 2.4 times. Here you will find Map of Moscow boundary expansion.
