In the era of the Internet rulers of the world are most afraid of accelerating processes of national awakening of the peoples of the world, their desire to turn to its historical roots, beneath the centuries to discern the roots of its own identity and culture, to gain additional strength in the struggle for survival, self-preservation and revival.

Of particular concern are the developments in the post-Soviet States, particularly Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, home to more than 150 million Russian-Slavic population. Here we're making world history, the main climatic zones of the survival of the planet is 40 percent of the world's natural resources are of strategic communication. The revival of Russian Slavic Trinity examines geopolitical opponents as the main threat to the interests of global dominance.

In Russia today there is an active discussion on the teaching of history in schools. Again the question about the relationship between "Russian" and "Russian" in Russian history. "Russian-Slavic" factor again comes to the fore of geohistory. The analysis of historiographical sources suggests that the transformation of Russian history in Russian started more than 1150 years ago since coming to power in Russia Varangians.


Russian-Slavic origins

One of the most convincing evidence that the Russo-Slavic nation is in deep crisis and disastrous condition is the lack of complete history of the origin, formation and development of ethnos. Separate disparate Chronicles, historical works and studies, revealing fragments of different historical events and periods of life of the Russian people, do not give a complete and objective historical picture. The situation is aggravated by the presence of a great number of counterfeit sources that are designed to conceal the truth about the Genesis of the Russo-Slavic people.

In modern Russia, officially established and recognized as the history of the Russian state, bounded roughly thousand-year period of development and is associated with the adoption of the Christian faith in Russia. In the official historiography 862 year is actually proclaimed as a starting point of formation and development of Russian statehood. In 2012, Russia celebrated the 1150th anniversary of the formation of Russian statehood.

Meanwhile, according to sources, about 3-4 thousand years our ancestors, "people okoloplodnykh the ice edge", as the release within a Large geographical area from the remnants of glaciers, began to learn the Slavic lands along the rivers (the Dnieper river (the Indus river (borysthenes), don, Zapadnaya Dvina, Volga (RA), the Volkhov). Over time, in the first Millennium of our era, they managed to form a Union of the Russo-Slavic tribes, build a unique Russian-Slavic civilization with well-developed democratic institutions of government, the community infrastructure national economy and livelihood, cultural values and traditions, ethnic solidarity, mutual aid and support.


Russian-Als (o)vanska civilization

The term Russian-Slavic (Slavic) civilization is based on thorough understanding in the language spoken of the very nature of the ethnic group of origin (the notion of blood), the evolution of his etnomassage territories on the landscape (soil), the history of formation and development of national language (the word), as a kind of ideological guide. The presence of "word" in the notion of a Slavic, or rather, Slavic, civilization testifies to the ideological affiliation of the Russian-Slavonic tribes.

Language (words) in Russian communities initially was viewed as an effective means of communication and storage of information about the universe and the world, about the environment, was used to support the birth of healthy children, physical and spiritual development, life, salvation, self-preservation and survival in conditions of severe natural and social competition. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the Russians, along with other Aryan peoples of common origin, got also the name of a layer(a)vane that in the course of evolution transformed into the concepts of the Slavs, Slavic. Thus, our distant ancestors was distinguished not only by unique tribal values and traditions, ethnic solidarity, reciprocity and support, but also the highest level of intelligence, based on the tenets of their own faith and their organic connection and unity with practical knowledge about the environment and the world.

Russa were sedentary people and were engaged not only agriculture, cattle breeding, hunting, fishery, beekeeping, and handicraft and trade. The Russians were the people of rivers and lakes, forests, steppes and mounds. Russ "lived in Nature," considered itself to be its organic part. Since ancient times, Russians have developed two centers of development: South - South trade routes "from the Varangians to the Greeks" along the Dnieper river is Kiev and the Northern city of Novgorod on the river Volkhov. At a later time historic relay arrangement etnomassage landscape took the coastal zone of the don, the Western Dvina, the Volga.

The Russian Slavs had no slavery in the conventional sense. Customary law was forbidden to enslave his fellow tribesmen. Slaves were captured foreigners, but they were part of the community on the rights of the servants – the younger brothers with the right over time to gain freedom to return home or to remain among the Russian-Slavic population, but free men.

In ancient Russia there was a community, sightseeing (Cathedral) the system based on the principles of equality and social justice. At the head of the Russian-Slavic communities were recognized national leaders - Dukes (military leaders) and spiritual leaders, wise men (Magi, nymphs, etc.). The role of priests in the Russian-Slavic communities often played Dukes, the tribesmen tried to choose as their spiritual head of the wise who understood the deep religious meaning of the universe, traditions and customs. A special place was occupied by the woman who was the source of healthy offspring, the guardian of the family hearth, mentor younger generations, especially, girls, reliable support and friend of her husband.

The pillars of the traditional way of life was organized by Vedic heritage, nativebelief and paganism. Veda ancestors have inherited from the Aryan past, which have reached Russians since the ARCTOGAIA[1]. Current nativebelief was based on the Pantheon of Russian gods (Perun, Svarog, Yar (Yar), horse, etc.) that reflect the nature and content of the relationship of Russian people with the Cosmos, mother nature, atecortin landscape. To speak of the religion of our pre-Christian ancestors only as faith in God is not right, because for them it was a holistic worldview: understanding the surrounding world and the recognition of the miraculous forces of Nature; the principles of life, relationships, family life, traditions, customs, holidays, etc.

It is interesting that representatives of the Russian-Slavic population possessed all the Christian virtues, proclaimed by Jesus Christ[2], as permanent national characteristics. However, the native of the ancient Russo-Slavonic paganism under the concept of a language understood by community (our) race – people. Paganism permeated the soul and Outlook of the people, acted as a Russo-Slavic folk belief. Russian als(o)Vanin, prosla(o)flawsi nature, applied to the Yarily, the Russian God of the Sun, was considered a follower of rodnoverie. This was another name of Orthodoxy, as our ancestors praised Right, knowledge, Reality and NAV – and took into account in everyday life. By the way, the word "language" in old Slavonic meant not only the tools of speech, a set of words and sentences, characteristic of the Russian ethnos, but also the very notion of the people.


Not the end of history

Our ancestors knew how to get along and live in peace with their neighbours. However, having trained fighting teams from among the most bold, courageous and brave warriors, could repel the "enemy" who came and interfered "with fire and sword" to Russia. As a rule, they are "by the sword and died". The fame of valor and heroism of the Russians on the bole of battle with the enemy went far beyond the borders of ancient Russia. The Russian state did not seek to capture other territories, the Russians didn't have another land, but they did not give a single inch. We know from history, like Russian soldiers successfully resisted all foreign invasions. In particular, at the time, they repulsed the attacks of the troops of the famous Alexander the great.

The main trouble for Russia, which led to negative and even catastrophic consequences for the Russian people through a thousand years, began in the second half of the ninth century and coincided with the coming to power of the Normans from the kind of Rurik. From the official history it is known that Rurik and his companions, intervened in the conflict in Novgorod between Russian princes on one side, were able to seize power in the city. Subsequently, in violation of centuries-old community-Assembly principles, the power was usurped in all of the ancient Russian state.

Detrimental impact on the history of the country had an armed clash with the Khazar Kaganate, the destruction of which caused massive infiltration process in the Russian elite representatives of other peoples, including native alien faiths.

In General, we can distinguish five major periods of Russian history when the transformation of Russian content of Russian was carried out most deliberately and consistently:

  1. X-XII centuries – the advent and adoption of Christianity in Russia.
  2. XVI-XVII – the times of Strife.
  3. XVIII – the period of Europeanization of Russia since the reign of Peter I.
  4. Communist experiment in the Soviet period since 1917.
  5. Liberal reforms at the turn of the centuries XX and XXI centuries.

Transformation of Russian history, above all, was through the internalization of economic and spiritual-cultural life, political elites, historical heritage. The ratio of the initial "Russian dominance" in favor of "Russian" context of national history changed with increasing specific weight of other peoples and ethnic groups in the state, to strengthen their role in politics. However, maintaining a significant predominance of the Russian-Slavic population in the country inevitably forced the international elites to take into account the Russian factor in Russian politics, economy, culture and other spheres. Up to XVI century the Russian content of the history retained its dominant position in the country's history. Christianity, transformed into the Orthodoxy, began to play a markedly more positive role in society.

The most consistent dismantling of the foundations of Russian-Slavic the meaning of the historical evolution occurred in the Soviet and Russian statehood in the past century. The destruction of the Patriarchal world of Russian Slavic village and the peasantry (of Christianity), the erosion of cultural and spiritual heritage and origins, the demographic potential of the people, the destruction of the elite and the internationalization of its influential representatives almost did not superethnos competitive in an era of global challenges and threats.

The situation is compounded by the fact that still significantly complicated the process of national awakening of the Russian-Slavic peoples of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, their desire to break through to their geo-historical roots, to find a collective identity, to find additional forces in the struggle for survival, self-preservation and revival. Among the fraternal peoples of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine is in better position is the Russian-Slavic population in the Republic of Belarus. But even here in politics, economy, culture, representatives of the Russian-Slavic majority are inferior in competition with litvino influential Catholic minority, which based on the authorities and the media stifles any attempt manifestation of ethnic solidarity on the part of their opponents.

In such circumstances, the promotion and dissemination among the population of the historical experience of trial and error, a holistic knowledge of the true realities, complexities and challenges, all of interweaving the historical fate of the Russian-Slavic people allows you to properly assess the current situation in the country and the world, to identify and take steps to revive the unique Russian-Slavic civilization. However, today it is time to unite and mobilize the forces of activism for the benefit of the fraternal peoples of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.

The result was the Exodus and the settlement of the Aryans in the territory of Modern Eurasia and among them were our ancestors Russian people.
