    That they "don't matter". I just said that I doubt that the Russians are the largest Nordish folk in the world.
    Russians are the largest Indo-European nation, although mostly "peripherally Nordish". Of course as far as Nordic phenotypical purity is concerned, it cannot be compared with Scandinavia (as a whole). But neither can Germany.

    Either of them. Well, I do not think in clichées that much, so I don't look for some Vikings between the inhabitants of Moscow.
    I just see "Nordish" as a term, which descibes much more than appearance and behaviour, namely tradition, mentality and history.

    OK, I got your point.

    Unfortunately not many people nowadays, even in Scandinavia, take much care for their traditions.

    I'd call that Nordic, or perhapse Norse. Nordid would describe a certain physical type, Nordish a racial group centered around the Nordid physique. Just my two cents.

    Blutwölfin stole my words My points exactly

    What gave me creaps was equating Nordish, Russians and Soviets. That equation simply doesn't match.

    Of course there are many Russians who are racially Nordish. The Soviet was a political system, so it is a bit irrelevant to the racial equation.

    The one thing I like from Soviet times is propaganda posters.

    And may I inquire if the British and the Dutch, having about 30% of brown eyes and being much closer to Italians than to Scandianavians, Russians, Finns and Balts when it comes to hair blondism are Central Nordish? eyes:

    Of course as far as Nordic phenotypical purity is concerned, it cannot be compared with Scandinavia (as a whole).
    Russians can be classified as Nordid, but never as Nordic, except maybe a few NW groups.

    What makes you doubt that Russians are the largest Northern European group in the world?
