St. Petersburg marks birth of 5 millionth resident

The 5 millionth resident of St. Petersburg was born on Saturday.

City governor Georgy Poltavchenko said the toddler girl’s large family would be given a four-room apartment, an anniversary medal and other gifts from the city.

The first time the city on the Neva saw its population reach 5 million was on February 23, 1988.
