The First World War in the first half of the twentieth century, the revolutionary events in 1918-1920,  foreign intervention and civil war, mass repression in the country  in 30-es years (up to 30 thousand people were killed) has a negative impact on  population growth. For example, in the years 1913-1920 the number of population was reduced for 386.9 thousand persons (16.6%). Losses in the Second World War (300 thousand people) is one of the events which led to a reduction in the number of people here. During that period the population has a strong emigration. The number of pre-war level of the population was restored only in 1955 (3277,2 thousand people).
