I've been consulting the official website of the city of Dushanbe and found the following interesting passage:
Согласно данным органов ЗАГС-а с 2005 по 2014 год в городе Душанбе зарегистрировано 155720 тысяч новорожденных.
Which Google translates as:
According to the data of the registry office, from 2005 to 2014, 155,720 thousand newborns were registered in the city of Dushanbe.
Most likely, the website only meant "155,720 newborns", but this is not the only time тысяч ("thousand") appears following an already-sufficient decimal number. Is this some custom in Russian or simply a repeated typo?
