In the second half of the 1st millennium, Germanic tribes from the banks of the Rhine and Elbe conquered almost all of Europe from the Atlantic to the Volga and the Crimea. This is how the French (Germanic Franks), British (Germanic Anglo-Saxons), Italians (Germanic Lombards) and Russians (Germanic Rus) appeared. The Germans, in the form of the Goths, reached the Crimea itself and founded their kingdom of Theodoro there, which existed for almost 1000 years. Thus, we have a solution to the eternal mystery of Russian history – where did the Russians come from?
An interesting moment in the history of Russia – where did the Russians come from?
Rather, from whom did they originate?
Until now, this moment is not only unclear, but generally unknown. And this is very strange, given that today there is a huge variety of means of determining the origin of different peoples, and the most iron of them are archaeological and genetic ones.
When a time machine is invented, then, of course, the problem will be solved in the blink of an eye, but so far such a unit has not yet appeared. But archaeologists and geneticists for some reason are silent. Or, rather, they just let it fog up. For what purpose?
Well, I personally am not an archaeologist or a geneticist, so I personally cannot solve the problem of the origin of modern Russians using these methods.
But I can read the available historical materials and draw some conclusions from what I read that may lead to a possible discovery.
In general, I operate with data that is not a secret to anyone today.
They say that the Russians descended from some ancient Rus, the origin of which is not entirely clear. These Rus appeared in Byzantine history at the end of the 1st millennium, they attacked Byzantium, plundered the South Caucasus and penetrated Iran through the Caspian Sea. Then they made peace with Byzantium and founded their own state ( Ancient Rus ), after which they entered the history of diplomacy as a state-forming ethnos.
But where did these mysterious Russes come to Russia initially?
Someone says that these are Western Slavs, someone claims that they are Scandinavians, and Ivan the Terrible had some evidence that they were Germans, in connection with which he considered himself the closest relative of the German Emperor Charlemagne. Here we will dance from the last hypothesis.
It is clear for sure that in world history the Rus appeared in the second half of the 1st millennium, and in 862 they firmly established themselves in the north of Russia in the person of Rurik and his tribe. It is from Rurik that modern Russians trace their history, and not from some Drevlyans, Polyans, Krivichi and other Slovenes. Today the very word RURIK for all Russians without exception bears a cult status. And where does the Drevlyans, Polyana and Krivichi with other Slovenes have to do with it ???
Now let’s look at the opposite end of Europe. Around the same time, the lands of present-day France, on which all sorts of Celts and Gauls lived on a wide front, were occupied by some Franks , who turned out to be Germans. It was these Germans who captured almost all of continental Western Europe up to the present Spanish border and the middle of Italy, and founded their own state of Franconia , which later gave its name to modern France.
Yes, they simply disappeared into the Francs and disappeared without a trace, today archaeologists only find beads from these ethnic groups in the ground, and nothing else.
Thus, we see that modern French, Belgians, Dutch and even northern Italians are ordinary Germans who have just forgotten their origins.
And the fact that they all speak different languages doesn’t mean anything. Origin is determined not by language and other national characteristics. Native languages are changing rapidly, and new national habits are also rapidly emerging. And what is going on with the genes of modern Franks? I do not know this, I repeat – I am not a geneticist. But I suspect that scientists on this topic are just hiding something, and very important.
Now let’s look at another powerful state – Great Britain . Who is it inhabited today? That’s right – the Anglo-Saxons (angelsachsen). Who are these Anglo-Saxons? And these are the Germans from two German tribes, the Angles and Saxons , who united with the Utes (also Germans) and invaded through a narrow strait into what is now Great Britain, in which the Celts, Britons, Scots and Picts then lived. True, the Germans did not succeed in seizing the entire island, therefore today there are Scots in the north – Scots, who have little in common with the modern British.
