Hopefully, in some 20 or so years, a new geo-political reality will allow us to revisit the current treaty с хохлами.

But for the fairness you should give Ostgebiete back to the Germans than. ;)

Russians are a small minority in Finland, numbering around 0.8% of the population.

RE: Maps of Europe
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I sense Romanians more ethnically Slavs than the South Slavs proper (who seem to me more like Slav-speaking aboriginals - Illyrians, Thracians, etc).

Still there, though! ;) What regions are they mostly in, by the way? I mean the Old Believers, not recent migrants.

Tsk tsk, Z! I´m surprised to read such sloppy usage from you! Big Grin

There´s tons of actual Slav input in the Balkan Slavs. Otherwise I don´t see how yous would have learnt the language so well. The Bulgars have the least, as far as I can tell, because of the way the language was slaughtered in their mouths, but we should probably think more about regions within the countries than countries themselves, when it comes to thinking where the Slavonic component is stronger...

And the Rumanians may WELL be more ancestrally Slavonic than most Bulgars, or even many Croats. That doesn´t stop them being ethnically Rumanian. I would talk of Slavonic and Celtic and Finnic etc. only in the META-ethnic sense. The terminology has been allowed to blur too much in common speech, though.

The Rumanians still use a LOT of Slavonic words from that part of their ancestors, it is true. As soon as you see one in the street, they´re always saying "DA DA" into their mobiles!

As another example, the English are probably far more ancestrally Celtic than the Irish (if we refer to actual original peoples that developed the Common Celtic language (and don´t bring up that Tartessos bullshit!)), but to call them more ethnically Celtic seems absurd.

What Tartessos bullshit? Tartessians were pre-Celtic.

You remind me of my father always trying to anticipate what others are going to say and often failing at it. Big Grin
