I am Paul Stonehill. I am a former Soviet refugee. My first name was anglicized upon entry to the United States. When I became a U.S. citizen n the
1980s, I changed my last name. Russian is my native language. My Ukrainian is still pretty good. You can write to me in Russian, using slang as well,
I stay abreast of linguistic developments in my former motherland (USSR).
My voice is God-given, and the contents of my videos is my research, If you do not like either, please do not listen. I do not recall having music
playing in any of my videos, that is not my style. I have been speaking English for decades, so I am glad native-speakers suspect my sentence
construction to be too English. And yes, I am not "Russian", I am a former Soviet citizen from Ukraine, but my ethnicity is not Slavic. My culture
includes both Russian and Ukrainian elements. In the Soviet Union "nationality" referred to one's ethnic background, and it hurt people like me, who
were of the "wrong" ethnicity. That's OK, it gave us the impetus to leave the USSR, too,
I assume I answered your questions.
