Leap of faith entry -- Nestor was Russian?![edit]

How did Nestor the Chronicler (an Old East Slavic Chronicler) suddenly turn into a "Russian" historian listed amidst later historians? The issue of the use of the signifier 'Russian' has created ample havoc in Wikipedia as it stands. See the rationale for changing Old Russian to Old East Slavic as a single instance. Nestor was not a 'Russian' chronicler but a chronicler of Rus': there's a distinct & substantive difference. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 02:43, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
