Ukraine should change name to ‘Rus-Ukraine’ in order to take ‘brand’ of ‘Russians’ away from Moscow, suggests top Zelensky advisor

The heritage of the old Rus civilization belongs to Kiev, not Moscow, and Ukraine should therefore change its name to 'Rus-Ukraine' and reclaim the branding of being Russians, an advisor to President Volodymyr Zelensky has said.

Speaking to a journalist on YouTube, Alexey Arestovich, who works as the spokesman for Kiev's delegation to the contact group on Donbass, claimed that Ukrainians are actually the real Russians.

The word Rus goes back to the Kievan Rus, a former East Slavic Monarchy that is considered to be the progenitor of the modern states of Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. This federation of various peoples had its capital in Kiev until it disintegrated in the 13th century.
