We remind that the Tatar community continues to monitor what is happening in Astrakhan, where discussions about the possible appearance of a monument to Ivan the Terrible in the city do not cease. Meanwhile, as BUSINESS Online found out, the acuteness of the Tatar issue in the lower Volga is not limited to this story alone. In particular, it is possible that, according to the results of the future All-Russian population census – 2020, the number of ethnic Tatars here may sharply decrease. According to the 2010 census, a little more than 60 thousand people live in the region, which makes up 6% of the population. Only Russians (61%) and Kazakhs (about 15%) live more in the Astrakhan region.
