Positions on Jerusalem [ edit ]
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 . [ edit ]
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

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.

Article titles for rivers in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus [ edit ]
You are invited to participate in the discussion about article titles for rivers in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus at WT:RIVERS#Article titles for rivers in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Markussep Talk 14:41, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
- The conclusion of the discussion is that articles about rivers in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus should be titled "X" if they're the only or primary topic (for example Volga, Yenisei, Irtysh, Berezina) and "X (river)" if disambiguation is needed and they are not obviously the primary topic (for example Kostroma (river), Don (river), Pripyat (river)). If there are more rivers with the same name, parentheses will be used for disambiguation, see WP:NCRIVER. I will start moving articles soon. Markussep Talk 08:59, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Editor Needs Help in Russian [ edit ]
A new editor is trying to write articles on professors in the Udmurt Republic, which appears to be a region in the Russian Federation, but needs help. The editor is . There are a few problems with their submissions. First, they are entering their names as last name comma first name patronymic, rather than first name patronymic last name. This is meant to be helpful but is not helpful. Second, they are submitting multiple copies, and continuing to submit the same article twice. Third, their English is not very good. They clearly are trying to contribute, but they need help, probably from someone who can advice them in their first language, which is probably Russian. Thank you.

David Dragunsky [ edit ]
Hey, David Dragunsky requires translating (or at least citing) from Russian. Would anyone be willing to do this? e.g. it states that in 1977 he was designated as the chair of the Anti-Zionist Committee of the Soviet Public, but that only came to existence in 1983?

On-going anti-LGBTQ purges and censorship in the List of people from Ukraine [ edit ]
A clique of editors seem to be implementing a purge of any mentionings of notable LGBTQ Ukrainians and LGBTQ activism in Ukraine.
In particular, the corresponding section in the List of people from Ukraine listing notable LGBTQ Ukrainians and Ukrainian LGBTQ activists with Wikipedia pages, has been first censored and then completely purged by this clique of editors, under the obviously false pretext of such entries in the list being "unecyclopedic"(!).
Please review the following revision history, between July 27 and July 29, 2020 , https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_people_from_Ukraine&action=history .
The purged list of notable LGBTQ Ukrainians and Ukrainian LGBTQ activists is as follows:
LGBTQ Ukrainians, pro-European and pro-Western LGBTQ Ukrainian activists
- Bogdan Globa
- Mike Enzi – US Senator from Wyoming
- Maurice Hinchey – former New York Congressman (Ukrainian mother)
- Volodymyr Horowitz
- Olha Kobylianska
- Alla Nazimiv - US Ukrainian actress, also known as an active member of the Hollywood LGBTQ community
- Anna Sharyhina - influential Ukrainian lesbian, LGBTQ leader
- Stav Strashko - distinguished Ukrainian Israeli transgender actress, passionate advocate of transgender lifestyle in Ukraine
- Edward Tarletski - Belarusian-Ukrainian LGBTQ activist
Please help to monitor and report the disruptive anti-LGBTQ editors and please help to edit List of people from Ukraine so that it objectively reflects the role of the LGBTQ people in the past, current and future Ukrainian politics, life, arts and science!

Spelling of Russian names from countries where ortography differs from English? [ edit ]
There's been some back-and-forth editing on the article MV-media (a Finnish fake news website) over whether the name of the now late founder should be spelled Ilja Janitskin (Finnish ortography) or Ilya Yanitskin (English ortography) – can someone more knowledgeable about this kind of stuff chime in on this to put the matter to rest? --Prospero One (talk) 08:15, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
