Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

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.

change[edit]

The article needs to be retitled "Ethnic Russians". I would do so myself, but a page with that title already exists (and is redirected elsewhere). Gringo300 (talk) 20:16, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

  • I have amended the entry to be 895,000 Jews of Soviet descent, which excludes all non-Jewish citizens of Russian descent. There are an estimated 1.3 million Russian speaking Israelis, but I couldn't find a good reference for that.Jameel the Saluki (talk) 11:18, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
