Catherine the Great[edit]

She shouldn't be included in this article, since this article is about the Russian ethnic group. Catherine the Great was not Russian. She was born a Prussian/German. Leading Russia does not make her Russian in the sense used in this article (ethnically). She converted from Lutheranism to Eastern Orthodoxy, and become fascinated with Russian culture - that's correct, but she wasn't Russian.

Therefore she should be removed from the box.

Genetics for ethnic groups RfC[edit]

For editors interested, there's an RfC currently being held: Should sections on genetics be removed from pages on ethnic groups?. Cheers! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 01:16, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

millions became refugees[edit]

Number would be useful. Please remeber the difference between ethic Russians and former Russian Empire citizens of other ethnicities, eg. Georgians.Xx236 (talk) 10:44, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Russian population figures[edit]

The number of Russians indicated in the 2010 census is 111 million (81 percent of population that declared their ethnicity) however there were 5.6 million Russian citizens who did not declare their ethnicity. The composition of this group is same as the population that did disclose their ethnicity, according to the Russian government. There is also the issue of the 1.1 million ethnic Russians in the disputed Crimean peninsula, which is de-facto part of the Russian Federation.

81 percent of 5.6 million is 4,559,837, making the ethnic Russian population 115,576,733 . If Crimea is included, the population is 116,765,711.

Is there anyway to include this number in the infobox? Or should the 2002 census be used instead? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Retaurn (talkcontribs) 19:04, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

@Retaurn: You've raised a good point, and I'll get back to you as to my suggestions on how best to handle it using WP:CALC after another issue (which has just been drawn to my attention) has been dealt with. Cheers! --Iryna Harpy (talk) 00:00, 10 August 2016 (UTC)
