Positions on Jerusalem

I added the WikiProject's template to the talk page of Positions on Jerusalem but it was removed. I think that it's on the scope of the project because it has a section on the position of Russia. Do you think that it should be re-added?

equal marriages Romanov Bagration .

When Princess Tatiana Konstantinovna , daughter of G-D Konstantine Konstantinovich, obtained the consent of her father to marry Konstantine Bagration and of course the blessing of HIM Nicholas II, she signed an official renouncement to their future children's rights, and that was BEFORE the abdication of the Romanov dynasty. So did her niece Ekaterina Ioannovna, princess of the Imperial Blood, in the late thirties, when she married Ruggero, marchese (in italian, or marquess, it means the same,) Farace di Villaforesta, for their children. Neither of these children : Nicoletta, Fiammetta and Ivan Farace ever considered themselves as heirs.... but Ivan, now marchese Farace di Villaforesta, is an active honorary member of the Family Association since his mother passed away in 2007. Like HM the King of Greece, Prince Michael of Kent, and other members of the Family, not necessCite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). arily of the Dynasty. If Konstantine was not equal to Tatiana Konstantinovna, Leonida was not equal to Vladimir Kirilovich.( Who was not a grand duke himself, according to the Laws, it was a "titre de courtoisie"...). This is simple and clear . Grand dukes, during the last years of the Empire, were only brothers, children and grand children of the Emperor. The sons of GD Konstantine Konstantinovich were born as grand dukes, but became princes when the Laws were modified, before the end or the monarchy. The last Emperor was GD Mikhail for a very short time, and all the grand dukes and grand duchesses are now dead, alas.

Ivan the Terrible and chess

Hi, someone inserted the lazy claim into the History of chess article that Ivan IV banned chess. When I looked into it, it was much more complicated than that. It's got something to do with the Stoglav, which basically banned games or anything fun. Was the Stoglav the law of the land in Russia, or did it only apply to the clergy? How strictly was it enforced? Would a serf be hauled before an ecclesiastical court for having a dance? What was Ivan's relationship to the Church, the Church's relationship to the State etc? What were the sources of law under the Tsardom? Clearly Ivan didn't think the prohibition on games applied to him since he famously died while playing chess. Anyway I posted a few thoughts at Talk:History of chess, help from anyone with specialist knowledge of Russian history would be appreciated. MaxBrowne2 (talk) 01:52, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Possible hoax at Soyombo Revival Society

Howdy hello folks! I recently stumbled across Soyombo Revival Society, which is up for deletion at Resource: Articles for deletion/Soyombo Revival Society, and concerns were raised that it might be a hoax. The page claims it was a Mongol society of Russian white emigres who were fighting communism in the 30's and 40's. While its not explicitly under WikiProject Russia, I'm hoping you folks can provide some expertise. The sourcing is very poor, most of the sources are in Russian and inaccessible. Some help in determining whether or not this is a hoax, or just a real organization that wasn't widely known, would be top. Smooth sailing, CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n!? 19:58, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

Karina Eibatova

Hi. I just submitted an article for Russian artist Karina Eibatova, and it could use with further feedback and expansion. For example, possibly a more fleshed-out "Selected works" section, and fuller "Work" section, detailing some of her commissioned and published works. Any help appreciated; thanks.

Corrections at Wheely article

Hello! My name is Elena and I work for Wheely (I've disclosed this on my talk page and the article's talk page), which operates in Russia, London and Paris. I've suggested a couple corrections at Talk:Wheely for editor review, including one to change the currently incorrect description of the company being a "carpool service" (which is not true). So far the page remains incorrect despite asking for help at WikiProject Companies and WikiProject Transit. Is someone here at WikiProject Russia able to help with these corrections? Thanks.

Draft page about Vasily Stavitsky

Hi! I've edited a draft page about Vasily Stavitsky, a Russian author and a former head of the FSB public relations centre. Just wanted to share it with the community, so that the article could be further improved and hopefully moved to the main space. --Document hippo (talk) 12:02, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
