Ethnic Origins of the Russians
What are the ethnic origins and history of the Russian nation, which is by far the largest on Earth? The Russians seem to be that one people that's been through it all; from nearly being wiped from existence, to almost conquering the world, the Russians have a truly interesting history full of ups and downs.
In today's video, we'll be briefly going over some of this history, including various periods of rule in Russia, from the Mongols to the Soviets, and take another look at the genetics and DNA of the modern Russian people and see what distinguishes them from other Europeans or Asians. Thanks for watching!
