I wonder what our confused Austrian make-believe Russian Alexena thinks of this article. This beauty is a Russian citizen. Now, our little minded racist has went from being a neo-nazi, White nationalist, and presently a communist. In a communist society, she would be warmly accepted as representing Russia as a beauty queen.

So, what are the thoughts about this from our little fickle and confused unemployed skunk cabbage?

The population of the Russian Federation is made of different ethnicities, and Tatars are just one among them.

2/3 or Russia's territories are in Asia! How could it be a "white only" country!

It's that ethnic diversity that makes Russia so rich. We are not living in the Middle Age!

Russians and Ukrainians are after 1000 years of gene mixing now a mongrel mix of slav, tatar, jewish german and finno -ugric and about five other common genetics. There is no point in denying it by these Russian Ultra Nationalist Neo Fascists on this blog. In Rostov na Donu, the ukrainian cossacks moved there in 1830s and mixed with the native caucasian - cicassian tribes who are of turkic. Those folks genetics are clearly visible in the Rostov area and all people there have mixed origins. In Russia and Ukraine in the 1930s the state forced everyone to mix so jews,tatrs , gypseys , germans slavs mixed in at soviet gun point as they were forced to drop their religion and be just soviets ( Homo Sovieticus). So now it is just a dog's breakfast of ethnicities in the CIS which is just fine with me . The Russkis that think they are pure anything on this blog have their heads up their Zhopas ! The talented and superior folks will simply rise to the top, even in Russia. This lady looks like she has meditteranean genetics and is a good looking person from Russia or Ukraine actually. It is a fairly common look for about 1/3 of the population there, and she is pretty and apparently smart. Good choice.

Circassian tribes speak their own language.... Circassian is their language.... It is a Caucasus language.

...
..... Yeah... Cossacks likely mixed with Turkic tribes.

When Cossack it's self comes from the Turkic Cuman word for Free man.

When Cossacks themselves were of Slavs who even joined Crimean Tatars as Peasants, Bandits & even those who joined Tatars to avoid Tatar Slavery.

... I mean Cossacks themselves from their orgins likely mixed with Turkic speaking people.

...
..... Although these Turkic peoples were likely just Turkified Scythians..... Much like Turkey is mostly just Turkified Anatolians.

I don't even get the big deal, this girl is only half Tatar! In 2004 the winner of Miss Russia was full Tatar! Like always the press is taking the views of a small segment and presenting it as if it represents the majority!

Yeah , big deal.... a slavic - turkish - tatar mix...... One third the people in the CIS have " the meditteranean look ".Joe Stalin had the caucasian - meditteranean look, and was barely European looking at all. He looked like a georgian wagon driver. Putin and Medveyev looked like a couple of business zhids.... Yes that is Russia today. It is best not too dig too deep into the genetiic past in Russia ! Pretty well evryone has an " ethnic skeleton in the closet " in Russia. Funny. Silly Russkis.... so racist some of them , and yet so oblivious to the obvious racial mish -mash dog's braekfast that Russia is.

One half of Russia is somewhat meditteranean looking, in any event, like this lady, Miss Russia. The meditteranean look is :(Spanish - Italian - Greek - Lebanese- south european - middle east type of physiognomy and facial and body features. So what is the big deal ?
