    The term "Russki" is used for both Slavic Russian or for anyone who is from Russia. It depends upon context. There are the words of a young woman from Tatarstan I know personally, not mine own. You are correct about Rossiyane.

    Of course, the best persons to correct us would be @Cadian and @спецназ.

    As far as I can see rooski is used generally for ethnic Russians.
    Indiscriminate use of that term (as in, for both ethnics and citizens w/o differentiating) is mostly by the Western media or the mind affected by that disease. (Note: not trying to insult or anything.)
    I could be wrong, so let those to mentioned correct me if so.

    It is understandable that Lenin was only 1/8th Russian. When have they ever taken any responsibility themselves? They either need outside leader or outside enemy, usually both.

    Finns use the word "ryssä" basically the same meaning, could also be insulting to somebody.

    The Russians (read Slavics) took the responsibility of liberating the Finnic and Finno-Ugric tribes from the Vikin yoke.

    It depends upon one's facial expression, especially if it sports a grimmace. Holds true for any word. :)

    Yes, after Rurik taught them the basic things they had some good periods. Sadly now those times are only a memory for them.

    Nope. If you want to learn Finnish history, you need to get out of Finland. If you want to learn fairy tales, stay where you are.

    What? British "appeasement" of Hitler was shorted lived, and ended with a war they won, while Stalin's actions alienated him from his future allies and lead to the war. You comparing two radically different and making moral judgments. Your reply makes no sense.

    So what?

    What you want to say is Leninism is different from Marxism.

    It is believed that Vikings settled in parts of what would be Canada today. We can discuss that, but probably we should open a new thread on that.

    Says who ?
    Britain and America did what it had to (including initial funding of both Nazis and Soviets) and SU did what it had to to protect itself. No point talking about morality.
    So you're wrong in your suspicion of Putin ever having said that.

    I think he is just trying to troll and derail.

    Earlier he told me he will show me this "unknown facts" and then in this thread (http://defenceforumindia.com/forum/europe-russia/64824-prince-ruriks-real-ancestry-5.html -- post 61 ) he presented some Norse Sagas :pound:

    1. They are Norse sagas. Not Finnish sagas.
    2. They are sagas. Sagas are stories, and he calls them evidennce. A good deal of sagas are clearly discernible as fiction, and most of the rest have no historical basis. It would be like saying that at a time the whole world was submerged by a great flood, because Middle Eastern stories say so.

    Difficult to educate the uneducated.

    Won't even waste time attempting so.

    In continuation with my post comment that Marxism and Communism (Lennism, if you will) are not the same thing.

    Who has ever denied WW2 started because of the Molotov- Ribbentrop pact?

    British and American "funding" of the Nazi and Soviets :pound: :pound::pound::pound:

    Your conspiracies are a whole new level of stupid. ISIS would consider you an insane, extremist, paranoid fantastist.

    I was questioning your quote of "Putin's", genius.

    As I'll be explaining in another reply I'm writing to you, I'm sticking you on my ignore list. Not going to waste anymore seconds of my life reading your stupidity.

    Vladimir, watch this before you plan your next years annexations. Finland is no Crimea or East Ukraine. Well, you knew it already, didnt you?
