You probably do not know about the Slavic tribe Rus?About what you say Scandinavia?
And you don't know either. Actually, I paraphrased findings of the known Russian historians who speculated that Rus' was the name for the Scandinavian raiders who controlled local Slavic tribes.

Russian nationalists are insane to the point of simply superimposing 20th century ideas about nation & state on the loose group of the semi-isolated primitive tribes who lived 1000 years ago in forests and swamps. This digging in the past would be just silly if Russian state wouldn't seek legitimization for its imperial overreach in those ancient swamps.

Ever heard about Russian religious history of 17th century? It's full of smell of burning flesh.

There is a big difference, friend: )
The USA already is the federal republic: )
And Russia wishes to remain the monolithic state, it doesn't want power decentralization: )
