I've often seen a lot of people claiming that east slavic nations are "fake russians" and this thing, probably triggers me the most. The thing is, I don't deny russian influence on these countries, I simply don't agree that Russian is an legitmate nationality. Here's why.
1. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT part of each and every nationality is their language. Its not just a way to communicate, language brings unity to certain nations and therefore its obviously unique for each nation. Is it though? Russian language is simply a “mix” made from Ukrainian and some other finno-urgic languages. Russian empire tried their best to mute Ukrainian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology_of_Ukrainian_language_suppression),
they didn’t want people to speak it, because they were scared of it being used against them. You can google yourself for additional proof, but Russian is so different from any other Slavic language, its so unbelieveable. Yes, there is some Slavic words in russian obviously, I don’t deny that. Take a look at some other comparisons: https://i.imgur.com/Acj0XIe.jpg

... Plain and simple. Russian is technically a Slavic language, but in fact all the grammar, pronunciation, words etc. is not even remote to any Slavic country.
2. RUSSIANS ARE SLAVES WITHIN THEIR OWN COUNTRY. Russians do not control anything in their own country, except for probably law enforcement authorities. Big governmental and private corporations are owned by Asians, kikes, americans or even people from central asia. Their land in Siberia is being slowly captured by Chinese businessmen. Russian folk itself is a wageslave forever, very little people actually achieve anything in their OWN country. With this I wanted to say, do you really believe an actual superpower country enslave its own citizens and give all the power to foreigners?
3. ARE RUSSIANS REALLY SLAVIC? Modern Russians are a mix of old russyns and finno-urgic tribes living in European Russia today. Russians also experienced a lot of Mongolic influence. Their genetic pool is extremely diverse, which leads me to believe they are not even remotely Slavic. May-be some-how culturally. But I encourage you to not see them as Slavic. They very little of that in a cultural way. Im not even talking about genetics right now.
CONCLUSION. Would you consider a nation without its own unique identity, extremely diverse gen.pool and having their folks enslaved for the profits of foreigners, a superpower? Yes, they have nukes. Yes, they have money and a solid army. But I think its only a cover for a stagnant place and the first one to hit them, will, most likely conquer the world to its limit. Russian political influence is a fluff.
