Objective. To study the trend of regional mortality rates for all causes and three groups of causes (diseases, external causes, alcohol, and drug abuse) in 2016-2019, to compare 4-year average mortality rates since 2020 and to evaluate the contribution of COVID-19 to disease mortality rates. Material and methods. The Russian Federal State Statistics Service data on the average annual population size and the number of deaths in one-year age groups for 2016–2020 were analyzed. Standardized death rates (SDRs) for all causes, three causes (diseases, external causes, alcohol, and drug abuse), average regional SDRs, and standard deviation were determined. Results. The average regional SDRs for all causes decreased from 2016 to 2019, but an annual decrease was recorded in SDR only in half of the regions; the trends were undulating. In 2020 versus 2016–2019, SDR showed an average increase by 12.9±5.3% (p
