Basing on the official statistical data of Russian Ministry of Public Health and State Statistical Committee authors analyse mortality attributable to cardiovascular diseases (CVDM) among Russian general population and its place in structure of total mortality. Authors conclude that 1) total mortality in Russian general population significantly exceeds the same indices in highly developed countries; 2) the rate of cardiovascular mortality is steady the highest among total mortality; 3) cardiovascular mortality among men in Russia is 2-3 times higher than in highly developed countries; 4) high cardiovascular mortality along with increasing mortality attributable to other causes (especially accidents, injuries, poisoning) leads to decreasing of mean life length in men up to 57.6 years, in women up to 71.2 years in 1994; for 1996 these indices were as high as 59.8 for men and 72.1 for women; 5) rate of disabled population also increases along with high cardiovascular mortality; 6) combination of high mortality (including cardiovascular) and low birth rates causes extremely unfavorable demographic situation and negative dynamics of population increment threatening the country future.
