"We are not Russians!" Sevryuks refuse to accept census results

Representatives of this ancient people complained to human rights activists that they were recorded as “Russians”.

In the all-Russian population census, representatives of one of the most ancient peoples on the territory of Russia, the sevryuks, will not be indicated.

They complained to the Russian Bar Association for Human Rights that either the scribes did not reach them, or they refused to indicate their real nationality, recording them as "Russians". Moreover, this happened in all places of residence of sevryuk: in Belgorod and Bryansk, in Oryol and Smolensk, in Moscow and Kursk regions. Since the sevryuki were not able to declare themselves in the course of the already completed Census, they do not recognize its result.

The representative of this people, the writer Vladimir Kalutsky from the Belgorod region, responded to the actions of the scribes who never came to him: “Yes, the state does not need me. So we didn’t make it..."

And the lawyer Maria Arkhipova (Bast) said: “I belong to the indigenous people of Russia - sevryuks, and this is not the first census when they do not record us with sevryuk, finding various reasons for this. But before the 1917 revolution, they were listed in the official results of the census. Moreover, if they served in the army, they were indicated as stellate stamps in army documents..."
