Tyva - the Poorest Region of Russia

The Vice Prime Minister and the former Head of the Accounts Chamber Tatyana Golikova called the Republic of Tyva the poorest region of Russia. According to her, the region has demonstrated an unprecedented level of poverty - about 41.5 percent of the population. Moreover, Tyva suffers, among all, from “child poverty”, because about 35 percent of those living below the poverty level are children.

      There are no jobs in the republic, and the majority of families survive on benefits. About 20 million Russians are currently living below the poverty line, which is about 13 percent of the total population in the country.

      Federal Statistics Agency previously announced that beginning from 2020 it intended to change the approach to calculating poverty statistics in Russia: the sample will include new categories of citizens, which can only increase the number of “officially” poor people in the country.
