“We will talk with experts and consider this issue. It is obvious that it has a historical background, because the story with “Muscovy” appeared during the time of Peter I, who decided to rewrite, including thanks to some Ukrainian figures, the history of “Muscovy”, and in fact, then the name “Russia” appeared. Thus, they have since tried to drag the history of Rus-Ukraine, Kyiv and adapt it for St. Petersburg, Moscow, the tundra and all other places.“, – said Tkachenko.
