Gli slavi e te l’ho già detto non sono tutti uguali quelli dei Balcani hanno la faccia diversa da quelli del Baltico come sta qua in foto, gli slavi dall’aspetto ———- sono quest’ultimi per il motivo che ho spiegato.
Sta qua se va nei Balcani e nel Centro-Est la riconoscono come baltica per via della sua faccia molto diversa da quella degli sloveni, degli albanesi, degli ungheresi etc dal resto degli altri slavi dell’Est.
Kurylenko has a “Eurasian” look, found in Eastern Slavs (Russians, Belarusians, Ukrainians), mainly in the regions around the Ural Mountains, as they have a recurrent Siberian mixture, although it is not uniform. Balts don’t have much of the Eurasian type, they are more like the East Slavs who live further to the West, the West Slavs (Poles, Czechs) with less Central European influence, and more Scandinavian. Even though groups such as the Estonians are of Eurasian (Fine-Ugric) origin, today they are very mixed and distinct from the modern inhabitants of the Ural Mountains. Balkan Slavs mixed heavily with the Illyrians (ancient peoples of the region), Dacians, and a few more with the Greeks and Turks (Bulgarians), although they occasionally preserved a more Slavic feature (like the Serbs). The “Asian” appearance in some (minority) Britons may be due to Yamnaya expansion and immigration from the steppes, rather than something related to the Germans.
