“Rod” is a Slavic god, the creator of the world and the father of the first generation of light gods. I. Ozhiganov
Secrets of the ancient Rus. In his monograph “By the Roads of the Gods,” the historian Yu. D. Petukhov sets out a fundamental discovery that is hushed up in the West and around the world. It lies in the fact that the ethnocultural linguistic core of the praetnos of the Indo-Europeans (Aryans) consisted of the direct ancestors of the Slavs-Rus. This discovery is substantiated on the basis of the richest archaeological, ethnographic material, on the linguistic analysis and analysis of the primary myths of the peoples of the Indo-European language family.
The mystery of history
Indo-Europeans-Aryans, ancient Aryans. Who are they? Where did they come from? Where is their ancestral home? What gods were worshiped? This mystery for millennia was considered insoluble. For two centuries, about twenty major hypotheses have been created about the origin of the Indo-Europeans and their history. Some of them have become almost immutable dogmas and pass from textbook to textbook, from encyclopedia to encyclopedia.
As a result, in the West (Romano-Germanic and Biblical historical schools), a classical historical scheme was created, familiar to us from schoolchildren: primitiveness (Ancient Egypt and the Ancient East, Ancient Greece and Rome – barbarians); mainly Germans and Gauls – the European Middle Ages, etc. Little attention is paid to Ancient India and China. Each narod-element has its place: in Egypt – the Egyptians, Palestine – the Jews, in Greece – the Greeks, in Rome – the Romans, etc. In Europe, on the very outskirts, the “wild” Slavs are barely looming, and even then they are mostly southern, which supposedly appeared in the Balkans only by the 5th-6th centuries. Only at the end of the VIII, and even in the IX-X centuries. the figure of the “brutal” Eastern Slav emerges from the swamps and forests, and who immediately occupies vast territories. At the same time, according to this theory, the Eastern Slavs, Rusichs, before the arrival of the German-Scandinavian civilizers and Greek missionaries, were in complete savagery. They collected mushrooms, berries, wild honey and beat the fish with a sharpened twig. This is approximately the picture of the past that a young man gets in schools in Europe and Russia.
It omits the fact that the “young” Russian people created writing before the adoption of Christianity. That the Russians have the oldest literature in Europe, which is second only to the literature of the ancient period in antiquity. True, there is a well-founded opinion that “ancient” literature was created already in the Middle Ages. Accordingly, Russian literature is not inferior in antiquity, and so-called. antique. That Russian mythology is rooted in the most hoary antiquity, to the time of the appearance of man himself. And its roots are older than the famous Scandinavian-Germanic, Celtic, Roman and Greek mythologies. That the “out of nowhere” Rus-Slavs instantly, literally in one or two centuries (which in principle is impossible) created on the same territory a “country of cities” – Gardarika, with a rich material culture, developed crafts and trade. And all these are indisputable facts. However, the Western scheme of history is alive and well.
Indo-Europeans as a single linguistic and ethnic community existed from 15-12 thousand BC. e. up to 5-4 thousand BC e. In 3 millennium BC. e. there is a divergence of Indo-European dialectal groups, filial ethnoses stand out from a single trunk. First, the Italic, Hittite-Luwian, Tocharian, Armenian, Celtic, Greek, Indo-Iranian, Germanic branches emerged. Later, the Balts and Slavs separated from the single trunk. At the same time, as Yu. D. Petukhov proves, the Slavs-Rus were the trunk of a huge superethnos, and they retained in their language, anthropology and mythology all the leading features of the Indo-European Aryans.
Initially, the ancestral home of the Indo-Europeans was sought in the East and Central Asia, for example, in Tibet. Researchers were attracted to places close to Iran and India. It was suggested that the ancestral home of the Aryans was located in the Caspian region or in ancient Bactria. Searched in Europe: from Spain and Iceland to Scandinavia. There was a time when self-confident Germanic scholars declared the Germans to be the direct descendants of the Aryans and believed that the waves of the Aryans-Germans spread throughout the world in waves from Central Europe. Supposedly it was the Germanic people who brought the culture to the wild Slavs.
A very important point is that all Indo-European peoples (modern Russians, Lithuanians, Germans, Swedes, French, Italians, Scots, White Indians, etc.) have common roots in languages, traditions, rituals, legends, legends, legends, kinship of mythologies. Its basis is in pramythology, the unified faith of the Aryan-Indo-Europeans. A common spiritual culture was born during the period of the existence of pranarod, a single ethnocultural community. And these roots, to a greater or lesser extent, were preserved among the peoples who scattered all over the world, went thousands of kilometers from their ancestral home. In particular, ancient Indian mythology can be called a real reserve of Russian spiritual culture, which existed 4-5 thousand years ago.
Rus are arias
The hypothesis that the first records of the Slavs appeared in the middle of the 1st millennium AD. e., and, therefore, at this time the Slavs arose, you can immediately discard. It was invented by Western racists. Back in those days, when they tried to prove the “primogeniture” of the Germanicans. When studying Indo-Europeans, one can find that there is a certain constant ethno-linguistic core. In the later period, these are the Balto-Slavs, before them – the Celto-Slavs, Scythian-Slavs. As we move to the periphery, filial ethnic groups stand out, to the west and north-west – the Celts and Germans, to the north – the Balts. The Balto-Slavic cultural and linguistic community existed relatively recently (in historical terms). Back in the 13th century, the Baltic tribes worshiped Perun and Veles-Volos, at a time when most of the Russians had already adopted Christianity.
Previously, there was a German-Balto-Slavic community. The core in this community is the Rus (Proto-Slavs). The Germans stand out from a single community only when they begin to develop the western lands and are influenced by Rome. Going down the timeline even lower. We find the ancient “Greeks” who came to the Peloponnese from the north and brought the Proto-Slavic gods and elements of a single spiritual and material culture to the Mediterranean. The Greeks are the Greeks. The ancient gods and hero of Ancient Greece have practically nothing to do with today’s Greeks. These are aliens from the North, with white skin, light eyes and hair, tall. For example, Apollo is a barbarian and Hyperborean from the north, Kopolo – Kup is the solar hypostasis of the Almighty Clan among the Indo-Europeans (among the later Russians, Kupala). Patron saint of warriors and storytellers. Transformed by the “ancient Greeks” into Apollo. Artemis-Artemis (among the Romans – Diana) is Roda, the youngest Rozhanitsa, daughter and at the same time the hypostasis of Lada. One of the oldest mythological images of the Rus, dating back to the Paleolithic and matriarchy. The “Greek” Khara-Hera is Yara, the goddess of the Rus, the sister and wife of Zeus-Zhiva, the hypostasis of Mother Lada.
Proto-Greek tribes migrated to the Mediterranean for two millennia. They come from the “Greco-German-Balto-Slavic community. At the same time, a permanent part of this community is Slav-Rus. They retain the original anthropological appearance, language and mythology of the superethnos from ancient times to the present day. Carried away by the Aryans to the South, the Proto-Slavic archaic will be preserved best of all among the Indo-Aryans. That is, even earlier there was an Indo-Aryan-Proto-Slavic community.
Thus, “Slavism” begins with the most ancient Proto-Indo-Europeans and to a large extent is precisely them. The Proto-Slavs-Rus, the ethnic core of the Proto-Indo-Europeans, “gave birth from themselves” first to the Indo-Aryans and the ancestors of the Anatolian peoples (Hittites, Lycians, etc.). Then a prolonged release from the main nucleus of the proto-Greek element that populated the Mediterranean began. Likewise, but with a delay, there was an isolation of the Italic element, which served as the basis for the Romance group. This is the solution to the Etruscan Rasens, who until the very end retained the main features of the Rus and served as the foundation for “Ancient Rome”. Later, the ancestors of the Germans and Celts separated from the common core. The Balts did not go far from the core, therefore they preserved the ancient Russian archaic (with common gods and language) better and longer than anyone else.
The historian Yu. D. Petukhov has solved the mystery of the millennium; the materials of mythoanalysis, linguistics, toponymy, onomastics, anthropology and archeology unambiguously show that the original Indo-European Aryans were the Rus-Slavs. It was they, in mixing with the arhatropes of Eurasia (pre-ethnic groups), who gave birth to all the existing and extinct peoples of the Indo-European language family and preserved themselves in direct descendants – Rus-Russians. Indo-Europeans and Proto-Indo-Europeans were those who are called Slavs. Although this is a late and not the only ethnonym “pranaroda”. Other names are Aryans-Yarians, Rasens, Wends-Venets, Russes, Scythians-Skolots, etc. The ancestral homelands of Indo-European-Russes, both primary and secondary, were located in their habitats in the Middle East, in Asia Minor, on Balkans, Mediterranean, Northern Black Sea region, Volga, Don and Southern Urals.
