The Russian Ukrainian history dating back to Ruriks grandchildren’s time. Note that the sequence of events surrounding the Rurik is documented in at least one contemporary source Rimberts Vita Ansgarii. Events but not the names of the Varangians and Swedish Rus. From Rimbert’s writing (round 865 AD) on forward up to today 2015, there hardly exist one modern state where the old history is as well documented as that of the country of Ukraine – a modern constructed state not an old one!
Btw. Crimea’s Russian and Swedish history of the Crim goes back to 300’s and is documented in contemporary sources…
”Ukraine”‘s true history
Ukraine didn’t exist as a country in Modern Age! Ukraine’s history is a Swedish Russian history well documented from 865 AD In mid 860’s Rimbert wrote Vita Ansgarii in honor of Ansgar/Anskar who in Swedish history is said to have made Sweden a Christian country.
There are few countries on Earth who have so good contempory documentation from the first noted events of 861 AD up to today as the landarea that Ukraine today calls their country.
Over the years they have had Swedish-Rus settlers and rulers, Khazarian rulers (Hebrew speaking people belonging to the Jewis tradition), Mongul rulers, belonged to the Ottoman Empire, belonged to Poland as well as Bulgarian rulers and so on… as late as in early 1400’s the main language spoken according to for each period contemporary sources was early Russian and Gothic languages!
One of many maps everyone discussing Ukraine SHOULD be aware of:
Rus lived in Ukraine area long before Ukraine was known as Ukraine
the Rus-Swede (with a small amount of Danish and Norwegian inlaws) as the Kiev Rus were living in Ukraine area long before the language called Ukrainish was formed, had it’s grammar and written sources!
Among those who can give correct, not Ukraine nationalistic but true history of Kiev Empire are:
* Several Greek monks. From 800’s on forward.
* Rimbert, Vita Ansgarri (the history before 861 AD event and up to 865 confirms almost all in Nestor’s Chronicle. Events and/or ethnic groups!)
* Ibn Miskawaih,The Eclipse of the Abbasid Caliphate, Oxford 1921.
* Ipaty Annals
* Emperor Constantin of Bysans, Dee Cermoniis
* Khazarian Hebrew Documents of the tenth Century, edit Golb Norman and Pritsak Omeljan, London 1982
* Lavrenty Annals
* Liutprand of Cremona, Antapodosis,transl. FA Wright, London 1930
* Nestor’s Chronicle
* Novgorod Chronicle (all up to 1200 can be confirmed from other with events, still existing contemporary MS
* Radziwill Chronicles
* Sharaf Al-Zaman Tahir, Marvazi on China, the Turks and India. transl V Minorsky, London 1942
* Walesiska protokollet
And at least 75(!!!!!) other written sources in Greek, Latin, Arabic as well as…. one in an Asian language…
Had the Ukraine’s tried to make believe that they had Hebrew origin that would have been harder to disprove – because a large group of people within most of Ukraine’s area were either Jews or convered Jews during the Days of the Khazarian Empire. But trying to steal one of the best documented Scandinavian Russian History – That’s a big mistake. Easy to disprove!
Btw. Irina, born Ingegerd to the Swedish King Olof Skotkonung, and her husband Jaroslav, grandson of Vladimir the Great, had several children and were devoted to each other. Irina moved to a Monestry when Jaroslav had died and is in Ortodox Christian History known as St Anna.
As late as today 28th July 2015, you will be able to find her name in one of her ancestor’s owned areas outside the town Norrköping in Sweden. St. Annas archipelago is well known.
Irina’s/Anna’s/Ingegerd’s and Jaroslav’s children married to Royalty in Europe and within two generations there hardly was a Royal Family without Irina/Anna and Jaroslav as their roots! That’s an other reason why it’s so easy to disprove Ukraine Nationalists…. Almost all European contries have in their Libraries Parchments and early handwritten later edited documentation that proves Ukraine as wrong as they possibly can be!
