New clues prove Russia's ancient heritage

Ufa, the capital of Bashkortostan, a republic in Russia, should mark its 5,000th rather than the approaching 430th anniversary of its foundation, says Vladimir Putenikhin, a writer and traveler from Ufa.

Regions.ru reports that Vladimir Putenikhin's background is in biology, but at heart he is a researcher. Four years ago he made an exciting discovery that Ufa has a 5,000-year history, definitely longer as compared to the traditionally believed 430 years. Besides, the researcher has identified the etymology of the city's name. 

According to the researcher, the capital of Bashkortostan is even older than Sumer civilization and Mesopotamia. The settlement site Turatau that archaeologists discovered in Ufa appears to back up the hypothesis. Now the place is a residential area named Green Grove. Mr. Putenikhin is convinced that the word Turatau stems from "Mount Ura". The Slavic "P" in the name of the Ufa fortress in the ancient records was mistakenly read as the Russian "Ф" ("F") resulting  in "Ufa". The city's ancient name means "emerged from the sun".

The Trump administration is looking for a replacement for the American military contingent in the north of Syria. If the United States agrees with Saudi Arabia, the situation in the south of the country will become a lot more intense as Iran and Israel stand on the brink of war

Iran strongly determined to fight for Golan Heights

These armchair generals who come on talk shows or give their opinions as to the capabilities of various military weapons systems are doing no more than inflating their own self image and generating circulation for the news agencies

Will Americans sacrifice one of their warships to start a major war?
