    MOSCOW, JANUARY 20 (RIA NOVOSTI) - This country turned out 80,290 book-and-brochure titles with a total print run of 720,300,000 copies and weighing about 10 billion sheet-copies over the entire 2003 period. This was disclosed today at the national Press Ministry's press center.

    The number of printed book-and-brochure titles increased by 15 percent on 2002 levels, what with their print run soaring by nearly 22 percent. Therefore one can say that the number of titles, which were turned out last year, tallies with the number of books and brochures, which were printed all over the former Soviet Union in the mid-1980s.

    As far as specific print runs are concerned, last year's results imply that more than five book-and-brochure copies were being printed per every Russian citizen. This considerably exceeds previous levels. For instance, per-capita print runs totaled only three copies over the 1999 period, officials at the Press Ministry's press center stressed.
