Kostroma and detached from the principality of Vladimir- Suzdal about 1247, took out a management Basil Yaroslavovich trough, the son of Grand Duke Vladimir Yaroslav Vsevolodovicha.

Can anyone translate this meaningless sentence into English? Skinsmoke (talk) 12:15, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

That's the only sentence you found unintelligible? Wow :)
The whole History section is actually a machine translation of the corresponding Russian article and should probably be gutted (unless someone is masochistic enough to clean it up).
As for the sentence above, here is what it really means:
Kostroma Principality separated from Vladimir–Suzdal around 1247. It was governed by Vasily Yaroslavich Kvashnya, son of Yaroslav Vsevolodovich, the Grand Prince of Vladimir.
Hope this helps.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); August 29, 2014; 12:56 (UTC)
Many thanks for that. You are correct. The whole History section needs a complete rewrite. Skinsmoke (talk) 17:47, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
