The name of the country – Russia – is descended from other word – «Russea» which in turn was formed from «Russenia» . Russenia was a part of the Slavonic-Aryan Empire  and occupied the territory west of the Riphean (the Ural) Mountains. The land to the east of the Urals up to the Pacific Ocean and further from the Russian North (called Lukomorie) to the Central India was called as the Land of Holy Race  (in Russian Свята Раса). Foreigners named this country differently.
One of the last foreign names of this land known in Europe up to the end of the 18th century was «The Great Tartary» . According to the first edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica of 1771 it was the greatest country of the world. After the war in 1775 (Pugachev’s Rebellion: the war between the Great Tartary and the Romanovs, where the second won) this name disappeared from all books.
Why was it named Tartary? When foreigners asked natives of this country who they were, the answer was: «We are children of Tarkh and Tara » – the people who reached the level of creators (they understood and used the possibility of an influence on the flows of the Primary Matters) and who were guardians of the Land of Holy Race. People had Vedic worldview (it was not a religion). They knew that human beings «came» to the Earth from other Star Systems. They knew and used, so-called, Star Gates  and Vaitmars (today known as UFO).
Among the star immigrants there was a small group of advanced humanoid creatures, very similar to modern man, who formed a sort of caste and were referred to by other immigrants as URs. Urs  had mighty abilities far beyond the imagination of the majority of «ordinary» people. They knew and used the possibilities of the Primary Matters to the maximum. They became tutors and guides to the rest of the people. Urs trained people and helped them to master primary technologies, and gave them knowledge. They taught them and gave them into the charge of a special caste of keepers – Volkhvs , who in due time were to convey conserved knowledge, having carried them through millennia and preserved as much of it as possible. For this purpose those keepers-Volkhvs received two runic alphabets, each of them was used by Volkhvs of different levels of initiation. Those alphabets were da’Aryan and h’Aryan letters .
The memory of Urs, the teachers, has remained in language, for example, in the word «cult-ur-e», which means a system of moral and spiritual concepts, which were transferred by Urs to their wards, Ruses.
The two-caste system of the ancient Slavs-Aryans reverberated in the names given them by their neighbours. For instance, the majority of Asian neighbours called an inhabitant of the Slavoniс-Aryan Empire as «ur-rus», uniting the self-names of these two castes in a single word. Even now many Asian neighbours call Russians in old fashion manner, as «Urruses». There was a time when the names of the Slavonic tribes were formed by the addition of prefixes to the root «rus», reflecting distinctive features of these tribes of Ruses, for example, Et-rus-can, P-rus-sian. The prefix «et» before the self-name of Ruses means «elucidated Ruses» – the carriers of high cult-ur-e. The proof of their existence has been found in the north of Italy in the form of inscriptions on stones and works of art. The name of «Prussian» meant «Ruses of Perun» , their other self-name was Venedas  (bellicose tribes of western Slavs), was kept in the self-name of the territory where they lived up to the 19th-20th centuries even after the German (gothic) tribes seized this land in 9th-10th centuries A.D. The gothic tribes destroyed the majority of Prussian-Slavs, assimilated the rest amidst them and borrowed their name. After that one of the German tribes that lived on this territory began to call themselves as «Prussians»; in the 19th century they played a key role in the merger of German tribes into a united state.
 The word «Russenia» has passed to Latin language as «Ruthenia» and later on began to be translated as simply «Rus».
 The Slavonic-Aryan Empire occupied the territory of modern continent of Eurasia in the time of great antiquity.
 The Land of the Holy Race was the country of Aces (an Ace is the god living on the Earth) – representatives of highly developed civilizations. The abbreviation RACE was originated from the reduction of the phrase in Russian «Clans of Aces of the Country of Aces» (Рода Асов Сраны Асов – РАСА). The Land of Holy Race consisted of four Great Clans of Aces: Aryans: da’Aryans, h’Aryans and Slavs: Russenas, Sviatorussians who led a patrimonial way of life. Da’Aryans arrived from Earth Rai, Zimun constellation (Ursa Minor). They had blond hair and gray-silver eyes, that matched their Sun (named Tara). H’Aryans arrived from Earth Troara, Orion constellation. They had light brown hair and green eyes, that matched their Sun (named Rada). From light to dark blond-haired and blue-eyed Sviatorussians arrived from Makosh constellation (Ursa Major). Russenas arrived from Earth Ingard, Race constellation (Beta Leonis). They had dark brown hair and brown eyes, that matched their goldon Sun (named Dazdbog). [Eye color depended on a Sun of a Star system. Our Star is named Jarilo, our Earth’s name is Midgard, Zimun constellation (Ursa Minor)].
 The Great Tartary (or Mighty Asia since it was originally settled by Aces – Acia later Asia) was the most ancient State of white people on the Asian part of the continent of Eurasia. Ancestors of the terrestrial mankind came to our planet from different Star systems: the Great Race (white, more than 600 000 years ago), the Great Dragon (yellow, around 40 000 years ago), the Fiery Snake (red, around 40 000 years ago) and representatives of Star systems of the Gloomy Heath land (black, around 40 000 years ago).
 “We are children of Tarkh and Tara”. By children it meant that they were not on a level of creators yet, they were still learning Wisdom. Tara was a patroness of the Nature (in many languages people still use Terre, Terra) and her senior brother Tarkh (or Dazdbog) was a keeper of the ancient Great Wisdom.
 Star Gates are power complexes that are used for moving between planets and Star systems. On our Earth there were 7 Star Gates. One of them was in France (Occitania, Languedoc).
 Urs are representatives of the planet Urai; the word «ur» means an habitable and fertile territory. They were very tall (more than 2m).
 A Volkhv is a cleric, the Supreme priest, and a keeper of ancient sacred texts.
 Da’Aryan and h’Aryan characters (letters) are two of four kinds of writing of the Great Race: da’Aryan Trags, h’Aryan Runes, Sviatorussians Images (bukvitca, runica, cherty and rezy) and Russenian Molvitca. All four Great Clans spoke the same language, but used different writing. Pra-Russian is the interstellar language.
Chinese, Korean, Japanese and other types of hieroglyphic writing have originated from da’Aryan Trags. Indian, Arabic writings are based on h’Aryan Runes (Ancient Sanskrit). Phoenician, Etruscan are Russenian Molvitca and Sviatorussians Images – runica, cherty, rezy. European languages are based on Sviatorussians Images – bukvitca.
 Perun was the god-patron (by god it meant one of the creators, it was not a religion) of all soldiers, the defender of the land and the clan of SviatoRuses (Russians, Byelorussians, Asts, Lits, Lats, Latgalls, Zemgalls, Polans, Serbs, etc.)
 Venedas were inhabitants of the Great Venea where Clans and tribes of Venedas migrated. It corresponds to the territory of modern Western Europe.
