    To be sure, Raggy Bitt has NO idea of what he’s talking about. Bulgarians, Russians and other Slavs have very minimal Central Asian admixture; that’s just a genetic fact. Of course they have more than Western Europeans, but that is to be expected given geography. But the Bulgars left very little genetic influence in the Bulgarians just like the Magyars made very little genetic in-roads in modern Hungarians.

    Maybe you need to study a bit more before spreading falsehoods, Raggy.
