- Nov 1, 1999Hello Irek!
This is probably off-topic, but I just couldn't help asking what
exactly do you mean by "Finno-Ugrish [-Ugrian] way of thinking"?
The whole idea of "Finno-Ugrian unity" is a deliberate mystification -
in terms of culture, religion etc. most nations that speak Finno-Ugrian
languages (say, the Finns and Estonians compared with Mordvinians,
Mari, etc.) have very little in common. In fact, Russian language and
Russian cultural influences are probably the only thing that ties us
I would assume that the "Tatar way of thinking" is much closer to the
Mordvinians than Estonian or Finnish...
With best wishes,
