    Re: The falsification of history: 'Ukraine' is not a country

    It is a proven and a well-known fact that the first Russian state was Kievan Rus - take note: “Rus,” not Ukraine! It is also well known that the very word “Ukraine” is from the old Russian world which refers never to a country, but to the mere border region between the countries and empires mentioned above. Later, the word "Ukraine" was used for the westernmost parts of the Russian Empire. When the Russian Empire expanded southwards, the new territories that were liberated from mostly Turkish occupation were called Novorossiya, or New Russia. Again, no mention of "Ukraine"! These are also well-known and proven historical facts. The north-eastern parts of the territory were called Malorossiya, or Little Russia. Unfortunately, the communist leaders of the USSR chose to put all of these parts together into a new Soviet republic and called the combination "Ukraine".
    The Ukrainian language traces its origins to the Old East Slavic language of the medieval state of Kievan Rus'. Ukrainian, along with all other East Slavic languages, is a descendant of the colloquial language used in Kievan Rus' (10th–13th century). Ukraine was a regional part of the state of Kievan Rus' and the first distinctly "Ukrainian" state (Halych-Volhynia: 1199–1349) was the cultural successor to Kievan Rus, which was founded after the disintegration of Kievan Rus'.

    Russia is none of those, but dream on ..........
    Russia has about 50% the population of the US, are awash in natural resources... and less than 10% the GDP...

    Not what I would consider a well run nation.
