How did the Slavs form themselves as the people where they came from and what was their religion for Christianity?
>>7086172https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/SlavsWikipedia wasn't invented for nothing anon.
they were scattered family units all over eastern europe/steppe until vikings united them, shortly after a slavic identity was formed.
>>7086230>all slavs are russianskys
>>7086172>How did the Slavs form themselves as the people where they came fromThey split off from Balts in the 3rd Century AD
>>7086172The first slavic state was formed around Novgorod.
>>7086339balts are 2nd millennium slavo-germanic rapebabies
>>7086369No, Slavs are just Balts who mixed with Germanics, Iranics, Huns, etc.
>>7086379balts don't exist
>>7086386If Balts don't exist then neither do Slavs
By thread logic Germanics don't exist either
>>7086407Nope, Germanics formed as a distinct branch of PIE 3000-4000 years ago, while Slavs simply split off from Balts less than 2000 years ago
>>7086172"Slavs" were just freed slaves at the end of the Roman Empire, there wasn't any ancient urheimat and no specific social structure.
>>7086172How closely related are Slavs to east Germanic populations like Goths vandals and Burgundians
>>7086445As interesting as the flat earth "theory" is. And by interesting i mean retarded
Question: why does it offend Slavs to be a branch from off the Baltic tree? Obviously Slavs ended up surpassing Balts in range and influence, why does it cause such an inferiority complex to consider their ethnic group hasn't been around since the dawn of time?
>>7086230Rurikids are not from Scatinavia.
>>7086172They are ScythiansSlavs is new Scythian nameScythia in the south begins from sources of Ister (Jordanes)Scythia in the north begins from mouth of Vistula (Odra) in JordanesArimaspea (Poland) is between Vistula (Odra) and Chronius (Vandalus) in Ammianus Marcelinus. It was known from ancient times as part of Scythia. Lusatian Culture is Arimaspea.Etruscans bordered with Scythians.Scythians are not Iranian people and are enemy of Iranians, Darius attacked Scythia, to do this he came from Persia, crossed Bosphor and Thracia and Scythia was there extending to the west were lived scythian among others Agathyrsi (Quadi, Coldui - Kolędycze) in Moravia/Czechia.Riphean mountains were Sudety. Name Scythia has slavic ethymology.
>>7086417What Germanics?Rugi, Quadi, Lugi, Suevi were Slavs.
>>7086436Hunnic cope. Slavs is slavic name with slavic ethymology, while Huns don't have their own name . They adapted latin name Germania which was used to western Slavs and eastern Celts, not some subhuman nordic Kvens/Huns.
>>7086486Burgundians and Vandals are slavs, "Goths" are danish Aesti/Haestingi under larping name. Asdingi are also danish Aesti. Aesti were celtic -speaking people in cloth similar to Slavs as Tacitus says.
>>7086745I guess it offends Russians only? Maybe because of the current political situation with the Baltic and the Russian minority in those countries. The rest of the Slavs didn't have much contact with Balts in the last 3.000 years, so the Balto-Slavic group doesn't mean anything to them. >inb4 Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Yeah, I'm not sure how relevant it is outside of Poland.

>>7088193It's from Latin from Ancient Greek from Eastern Iranian. Some Scythian tribes kept conquering slavic groups for a long time though, you can even it among Croatian, which is an Iranic word.
>>7088193not thatLiczyć = cчитaтьSzczyt = LicoNaski = Ulicze (Royal Scythians) = Unxisvasina (Uszczisvasina)Zyski = Zlicze (Oflones of Ptolemy, Scizi of Pliny)There are even slavic Scitizi in Polabie
