Pay attention to the combination of repetitive sounds "days" in the names of the main rivers of the northern Black Sea region: Don, Donets, Dnieper, Dniester, Danube. Scientists have recently found these names formed from one concept belonging to ancient people who lived in these places from time immemorial. These were the ancestors of the Aryans, that is Indo-European, whose ancestral home is localized science in the Volga region and the Black Sea steppes.
"Ethnonym arias — says researcher Ya.V.Chesnov in the collection" Ethnographers tell ", issued by the Institute of Ethnography. NN Miklukho-Maclay (New York, 1978, p 26) — many thousands of years ago meant "Pahari", and then became the name of the ruling of the people in ancient India "… It is possible that between the word" aria "and a common basis in their native for all the people baltoslavyanskih word for this original concept, there is a connection. For example, the Lithuanian form of the word "plow» — arti, artu, Latvian — art, ar'u, Serbo — Oratov, Czech — orati, Old Russian — Oratov etc. In India, the word came to mean aryia "noble", "faithful".
If you go back to the names of the northern Black River, the ancient monument of Aryan culture, "Rigveda" word denotes dan river at all. In the later works of Sanskrit sacred literature have appeared in India, it is a relic of the word-is encountered.
Vedas — ancient Indian literature written before the emergence of Buddhism. Translated word veda "knowledge", and you can remember Russian words derived from the same ancient pervokornya — to know, witch, witchcraft. "Rig Veda", "Veda hymns" — huge, in terms of surpassing the Iliad and Odyssey put together a collection of lyrical and mythological sacred songs, created in Afghanistan — Punjab XII-X centuries BC Aryans herders who migrated to India for about 500 years from the steppe and forest-steppe zone of Eastern Europe.
In the III millennium BC between the Volga, Don, Dnieper, Dniester formed Indo-Iranian or Aryan (Indo-European) language and cultural community. Arya closely side by side, or even were closely related to the common protobaltoslavyanskimi tribes. One of the major scientific evidence of this fact — a striking resemblance Sanskrit Vedic Aryans Slavic, especially the Eastern Slavic languages — on the basic lexical fund, grammatical structure, and many other particulars that are written a lot of research.
Confine ourselves here to some of the most illustrative examples: Sanskrit nabha, nabhaca represents a habitat of gods and space, carrying the sun and clouds, giving rise rain and wind. The closest to this notion Russian sky, heaven, expressed in a surprisingly similar lesicheskoy form.
Scientists have also compare Sanskrit bhaga (merciful god, patron, good fortune) and the Slavic word and the concept of God. Confront also Agni — the fire god and the Slavic word fire.
Without going into details, we note that the scientists do not doubt: that the Aryans brought to India the horse and the iron and steel, customary law, and the establishment of social and ethical, as well as the basis of beliefs, which has evolved Hinduism, for example, the cult of fire and water.
On the other hand, the Soviet scholar T.I.Alekseeva years studied extensive anthropological data and concluded that "the formation of the features common to the ancient Slavs, dates back to antiquity, at least to the III-II millennium BC."
From the above conclusion can be Aryans ("Pahari"), and later, of course, "Scythian ploughmen," Slavonic people were farming the forest-steppe and steppe zones of the northern Black Sea coast.
