This utmost in its significance event in the history of humanity since the moment of its emergence is expressed first of all in the population dynamics. However, it touches upon all sides of life of billions of people and that is why it is just the demographic processes which has become the most important global problem of the world and Russia. It is not only the present that depends on their fundamental understanding but also the foreseeable future, priorities and irregularity of development, sustainable growth and global security after the current crucial age of changes.
