OK, my view is simple as a piece of pie. I agree on one thing – “true Russia” doesn’t come with territory. But it definitely comes with people – the Russian people or people who identify themselves with the Russian culture. Otherwise all our rants about universal “good” and “universal love for all people” are just senseless good intentions, which are well-known building material for the road to hell. The universal priority for us is people – each and every Russian babushka, each and every Russian dedushka. We must accept that the Russian people+ Russian culture = “true Russia”. This “true Russia” does not coincide with the contemporary political borders. I can tell you that even if Ramzan Kadyrov (Chechen president) had been made of absolute virtues praying non-stop in his biggest ever built (at the expense of those Russian babushkas and dedushkas) Mosque, neither he nor his people would have ever been “true Russia”. It’s just rational egoism. It’s just part of human nature. Of course some Russians may call themselves Ukrainians and Belorussians. It’s up to them. Russians are so eccentric!. LOL Cheers!
P.S. We are talking about cementing country with the Russians and the Russian culture. Officially the Russians don’t exist now. There is no mention of the Russians (82% of the country’s population!!!) in the Russian constitution. There is no Russian republic. There is no Russian government. The Russians are second-class citizens in their own country terrorised by the government on the basis of their ethnicity.

Rus’ = Ukraine + Russia + Belarus. Rus’ is not completed yet.
… ethnic Tatars, Chukchis, Georgians, Germans and whoever else is living in Russia and behaving worthily – they are, by all means, Russian.”
A: Are you kidding? Try to tell/ask Georgians, Tatars etc, that they are Russians. 95% of them would probably make a try to break your nose.
Germans, Finns, Ukrainians, Belorussians, Swedes and other European nationalities were and are a nature part of Russian community for centuries. Germans (any other Europeans) stay Germans with their language, traditions and culture without breaking Russian laws, without any disgusting thing, which some Eastern peoples try to “promote” in Russian Federation. There were/are NO animosity, contradictions or dismounting of our cultures. We did/do always supplement each other, cooperate with each other. European peoples have always made contributions in Russian culture/science/history.
“Something Russian” is often something Russian+Ukrainian, Russian+Scandinavian, Russian+French, Russian+German etc etc
These people are Russians:
and at the same time without any contradiction they are Germans, Danish, Ukrainian or ________ (put the needed nationality).
Europeans in the territory of Russia can coexist side-by-side concurrently, without any contradiction. They are all Russians.
But such people like him: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramzan_Kadyrov – will never be Russians.
Answer by Cossak
The True Russia must include Ukraine and Belarus. We must be united for historical,military,economy,political reasons. I guess there soon gotta be a new Confederation of these countries. Slowly but we building a new Union,step by step. Only together we may stand against crisis and future occupants.

This link to a site that hosts an interactive map of “Change in Russia for centuries.” You can open and see how it changed over the centuries the territory of Russia. With regard to our territorial claims, we truly strive for world domination, but only after we get back our lost territories and occupy the area of 23,700,000 km ² as of 1866)
Intuitively, the highest point of the Russian state, I feel the Russian Empire the reign of Alexander III. If you talk about Slava’s “true Russia”, I’m afraid it will go to Russia since Ivan the Terrible, before Kazan campaigns. Unless of course I understand correctly. In discussing this issue should not forget that Russian – nation with imperial scale (yes no more, no less), it is this way Russian and differ from most European nations. Considering this aspect, we come to the conclusion that the “true Russia” – this is primarily the territory of the Soviet Union no less than the second half of the twentieth century, and the system of relations between the Russian culture, with many cultures of indigenous peoples, the reign of Nicholas I. – Nicholas II (of course adapted to modern conditions). Obviously, the Russian Empire during the reign of Alexander III, in principle, satisfies both requirements. Hence it can be considered “true Russia”.
I do not know how to translate this damn translator, so the duplicate in the Russian
Чисто интуитивно, высшей точкой развития русского государства я ощущаю Российскую Империю времен Александра Третьего. Если же говорить о Славиной “true Russia”, то боюсь речь пойдет о России времен Ивана Грозного, до его казанских походов. Если конечно я все правильно понял. В обсуждении данного вопроса нельзя забывать, что русские эта нация с имперским размахом (да не больше, не меньше), именно этим кстати русские и отличаются от большинства европейских народов. Учитывая этот аспект мы придем к выводу что “true Russia” – это в первую очередь территория не меньше чем СССР второй половины двадцатого века, и система отношений Русской культуры с многочисленными культурами коренных народов, времен правления Николая Первого – Николая Второго (естественно адаптированная к современным условиям). Очевидно, что Российская Империя времен правления Александра Третьего в принципе удовлетворяет обоим требованиям. Следовательно ее можно считать “true Russia”.
