Russia announced that the seven-billionth person was born in the country's westernmost city, Kaliningrad. The boy was named Pyotr. 

      Pyotr Alekseevich Nikolayev was born in Kaliningrad Perinatal Center, at 0:02 a.m. Moscow time. The boy is perfectly healthy, his weight is 3,6 kilos and height is 50 centimeters. Pyotr is the third child in the family, he already has an older brother and sister.

      The seven-billionth's person date of birth is relative in many ways. It is impossible to calculate the exact day, so October 31 is just a symbolic date. The decision to announce a Kaliningrad's citizen the seven-billionth child was made in UNO and linked to the presentation of a World Report on the planet's populace, which would be held in Kaliningrad. In particular, the report will analyze problems of the Earth's increased population. And on October 31, the number of round tables titled "Russia from end to end: demographic portrait of the country" will close in Kaliningrad

        According to regional government's press service, Pyotr's mother was given a special UNO's commemorative certificate "Born in the Seven Billion Day". The region's officials promised to give special presents to the family.

      At the same time, several places of the world challenge a right to be named a homeland for the seven-billionth person. And the first of them is Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in Russia's Far East. The relevant UNO's certificate will be given to a boy Alexander, who was born there on the night of October 31. India has also announced the birth of the seven-billionth inhabitant and, according to the birth statistics, the chance for birth of the seven-billionth person was the highest in that country.

      The six-billionth person born on the planet was in 1999 in the Bosnian city of Sarajevo. According to UNO, in 2050 the nine-billionth person will be born on the planet, and in the end of 21st century there will be more than 10 billion people living on Earth.
