When you are so hot you dump Cristiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper and people don’t even question.
“Russian” doesn’t make sense, Russia is very much a multiethnic country. Russian as in Euro white? And please don’t use Caucasian, Caucasians are very close to looking like Central Asians and not Euros.
To keep consistency with how the site has evolved, shouldn’t the 25% be labled “Russian Tartar” since Tarta is an ethnicity and not a nationality? Tartars are native to quite a few presented day countries.
All of those Tatars in different places originate from Volga Tatars in Russia.
Okay, then. But it doesn’t change the point that Tartars aren’t a nationality while Russian is both that an an ethnicity. It should read either read “Russian Tartar” or the specific Tartar group from which her ancestry originates.
Irina’s sister Tatiana stated that their father Valery is just half-Tatar. Their paternal grandfather was also Russian, although Valery had his mother’s last name (probably because his father left the family).
Irina’s parents are Valery Shaykhlislamov and Olga (likely Korenkova).
Irina’s maternal grandmother’s surname Korenkova was probably last name of her husband (Irina’s grandfather) and not her maiden name.
