Now lets go back to the topic, I think also putin said that, after islamists requested their recognition... He told them that if someone deserves recognition, is the greeks that live there.. There is a reason for it.
Ukraine was known as “Kievan Rus” (from which Russia is a derivative) up until the 16th century. In the 9th century, Kiev was the major political and cultural center in eastern Europe. Kievan Rus reached the height of its power in the 10th century and adopted Byzantine Christianity. The Mongol conquest in 1240 ended Kievan power. From the 13th to the 16th century, Kiev was under the influence of Poland and western Europe. The negotiation of the Union of Brest-Litovsk in 1596 divided the Ukrainians into Orthodox and Ukrainian Catholic faithful. In 1654, Ukraine asked the czar of Moscovy for protection against Poland, and the Treaty of Pereyasav signed that year recognized the suzerainty of Moscow. The agreement was interpreted by Moscow as an invitation to take over Kiev, and the Ukrainian state was eventually absorbed into the Russian Empire.
Maybe u didnt read it at all, I wrote that our ancient history relates with Crimea, crimea has the iron mines and there the greeks got the ore for their weapons and we speak about the age of Odysseus.
And am telling ya, the only land mongolians own, is mongolia itself (5000bc and onwards), since chinense kicked them out, they spread and occupied, never conquered.
When night fell the Mongols held their positions while the Kievans retreated to the central parts of the city. Many people crowded into the Church of the Tithes. The next day, as the Mongols commenced the final assault, the church's balcony collapsed under the weight of the people standing on it, crushing many. After the Mongols won the battle, they plundered Kiev. Most of the population was massacred. Out of 50,000 inhabitants before the invasion, about 2,000 survived. Most of the city was burned and only six out of forty major buildings remained standing. Dmytro, however, was shown mercy for his bravery.
After their victory at Kiev, the Mongols were free to advance into Halych-Volhynia and Poland.
they called it Taurida
The Taurida Soviet Socialist Republic (Russian: Советская Социалистическая Республика Тавриды, Sovetskaja Socialističeskaya Respublika Tavridy ; Ukrainian: Радянська Соціалістична Республіка Тавриди, Radjans'ka Socialistyčna Respublika Tavrydy) was an unsuccessful attempt to establish a Soviet republic situated in the Crimean Peninsula independent of Soviet Russia; it did not sign the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk.
It existed from 19 March to 30 April 1918 and was recognised by the Russian SFSR.
crimea has the iron mines and there the greeks got the ore for their weapons
The Greeks used bronze, a mix of tin and copper, for their weapons and tools. Later, iron was used because it produced harder tools and weapons. Athens found a large amount of silver in the mines at Laurium. At its peak, Athens had over 20,000 slaves mining at Laurium. At the request of Themistocles, they used the money from these mines to pay for a large navy. This investment in the navy paid off in their development of a large trade network around the Mediterranean.
There were very good mining areas around Greece. The northern mountains of Thrace had large gold and silver deposits. Cyprus was known for its copper, gold, and iron. Laurium was known for the sliver and iron ore deposits.

And yes you did lie, trying to pass off the reaction of 6 people as the whole of Slovyansk is lying and you know what you are doing also so you are purposely spreading disinfo.
What kind of argumentation is that? Russia let fall Girkin like a hot potato and so also all the "freedom fighters". This part of the game is over. And youwant me to prove that there were more than six persons which I never denied?
The next step will be that Russia will not intervene in any fightings nor support it too openly. They will support unrest and attacks within Ukraine without showing their involvement. The Donetsk Republik and the Luhansk Republic are history. They only could come up with Russian support in the background. That has been pulled out of the game.
