JustWoodshifting: "Rus" comes from the Red-haired Ruthenians that come from the area we now call "Ukraine". The word "Ukrainian", to designate those peoples living in Ukraine wasn't in the lexicon until the early 19th century, when the Ruthenians came to the United States and Canada.
   Nov-01-18 Tal vs M Stean, 1974 (replies)
