The name of this article is based on the false assumption that the Russian name is the conventional designation. There is no evidence of that and therefore I move that the article be moved to "Seredny Stih", as currently used in Ukrainian. Thanks, Horlo (talk) 11:07, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
Object, There is no evidence that Ukainian version is most commonly used in English either, hence just leave it "as is" unless you have a positive evidence. `- 7 bubyon>t 07:31, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Thanks User:AnonMoos for putting the Sredny Stog culture back in the Kurgan hypothesis. As I understand it, the original version put PIE near the southern end of the Urals, and a little to the west, c 5500 BC. From there the Kurgan complex is said to have expanded throughout the Pontic-Caspian region. However, as more evidence came in the center of gravity seemed to shift to somewhere in the neighborhood of Kiev c 3700 BC, with Sredny Stog as a likely candidate for one of several cultures that merged into PIE-bearing culture (possibly early Cucuteni-Tripolye B). In any case, Sredny Stog is definitely a major player in the modified Kurgan hypothesis, especially the J P Mallory version. Zyxwv99 (talk) 15:24, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
