Hey, @PdxInteractive, @PDX_Dev_Studio, and @CrusaderKings. Ukranian fans of your games here. We are deeply conserned, sad and angry that you called us and our historical lands Russia in CK3 game. Its a big historical mistake. Russia and russian state culture was formed in 18th c. pic.twitter.com/OoLtogheW1

Kievan Rus was a historiographic term invented by 19th century historians in the Russian Empire. The people in Rus’ (“na Rusi”), or the Russian lands (“Russkaya zemlya”), from Galicia to Vladimir-Suzdal called themselves “Rus.”
“Rossiya” is nothing more than than Greek for Rus’ (“Ruthenia” in Latin).
That cleared up, I really don’t really understand what these svidomy are mad about anyway, they have their “Khazaria” after all. Both in CK3, and offline.
