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)
If no one has anything to say in defence of this WP:SYNTH (other than a misnomer based on terminology used prior the disintegration of Empires; i.e., the 1911 version of the encyclopaedia much of Wikipedia was originally based on as a starting point for development according to contemporary WP:RS), I'm going to remove him for the WP:BOLLOCKS it is. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 22:23, 28 August 2017 (UTC)
