You would think this stuff would be long gone: based as it is on long discredited racial genetic theories. Its hard to believe that the Ukrainian Nazis still think they are descended from Ayrian vikings...whilst their Russian opponents (as their propaganda repeatedly tell us) are untermensch: asiatic "Orks".
The genetic truth is that there's nothing between the two nor likewise the Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Hungarians, Poles and Belarus.
Karl Deutsch's definition: "A nation is a group of people linked together by a common error about their ancestry and a common dislike of their neighbours." never rang so true.
