Scandinavia – The Land of Rus

Modern history is not only false, but it has also been written by the order of very powerful families, who wish to keep the humanity under their thumb. To say it in other words – modern history, as it is taught in schools and universities around the world, is designed with the sole purpose of creating obedient slaves.

Along with the numerous monuments with Slavic-Aryan symbols scattered throughout Europe, there exist monuments with runic inscriptions that are dated to be between one and a half to two thousand years old. There are especially many such monuments in Northern Europe, in Scandinavia.


These include, first and foremost, runic stones, which modern scholars refer to the period of 1st to 5th century A.D., although suggest that their age is much older, this includes bracteates – flat thin coins of gold or silver embossed on one side, today we call them medallions.

It was always thought, that these runic inscriptions are written with ancient Germanic runes, or the so-called “Elder Futhark”. However, none of runic inscriptions relating to this period, were not deciphered using these runes, in the sense that runologists and historians “supposedly” read something with the help of Futhark, but the output was nothing more than a meaningless set of letters, which was then “brought” to the more or less understandable form, using all sorts of tensions and assumptions. Over the 90 years of its existence, Western runology was not able to correctly read a single runic inscription.


The only suitable tool for reading the early Scandinavian runes were Slavic runes. With their help, the inscriptions read perfectly, without any adaptations, sadly for the orthodox scientists. It was Oleg Leonidovich Sokol-Kutylovsky, a corresponding member of RANS (Research Institute of Geophysics, Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Ekaterinburg), who was able to get the Scandinavian runes to speak.

He analyzed the runic inscriptions on 35 bracteates, about 30 inscriptions on clasps and ornaments, rings, medallions, coins, weapons, and 30 runic stones, and about a dozen inscriptions on bones and wood. The geography of runic monuments of Slavic-Aryan inscriptions, which he found, is impressive: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, UK, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Ukraine, France, Bulgaria, Hungary, Serbia and the European part of Turkey. He wrote a couple of dozens of articles, which gave detailed description of his research. The scientist came to a natural conclusion: virtually all of the ancient runic inscriptions of Northern and Central Europe, previously considered of German origin, are meaningfully read in Slavic language.


Let us read some of the evidence discovered by the Russian scientist, which were left by our Ancestors two thousand years ago, when Scandinavian land was their homeland.

Inscriptions on Runic Stones

The most famous rune stone in Northern Europe is a stone from the Swedish city Rök. The stone contains the longest runic inscription from among known. It consists of 762 runes and dates from the 9th century A.D. The text is written on all sides of the stone, including the ends and the top.


The Swedes “deciphered” the inscription as follows:

“About Vemude these runes speak. Darin placed them in honor of the fallen son. I say the folktale / to the young men, which the two war-booties were, which twelve times were taken as war-booty, both together from various men. I say this second, who nine generations ago lost his life with the Hreidgoths; and died with them for his guilt. Þjóðríkr the bold, chief of sea-warriors, ruled over the shores of the Hreiðsea. Now he sits armed on his Goth(ic horse), his shield strapped, the prince of the Mærings.”

However, the Russian scientist Sokol-Kutylovsky, using Slavic runes, demonstrates his deciphering of each inscribed row, which ended up being much longer than the Swedish version, and proves that “the Swedish runic poem” has nothing to do with what is written on the stone in reality. It does not speak of any Vemude, nor does it speak of Todrike, who is identified with the king of Visigoths – Theodoric. Moreover, his deciphering destroys the myth of the ancient runic poetry inscriptions of the Swedes. The only correct guess of the Swedish runology, is that the stone is a monument to the fallen. What is written on it, in fact? Here is a fragment of the deciphered inscription, the full version of which can be read in the scientific article “Rök Runestone: Myths and Reality”:


“They placed for their honored. They chose to give life (for) rags. That uneven battle they did not begin, they entered the fight, for the fight came to them … They destroyed that army. May those lands become theirs … Danes attacked their lands, their servants (employees) of the owner of those lands. Not otherwise, as to impose a tax (on) their land and wanted them to give those lands to them … If it wasn’t for ners Nivanned, Vanned and Nevanhnanne in the service of the owner of the land … And those lands are attacked no more. Those Danes are no more, for ners … hold guard, for those lands were given (to them), their lands … “

The rune stone speaks about the conflict between farming communities of Slavic people of “Rags” and “Ners” on one side, and the Danes on the other. The Danes tried to collect tribute (tax) from the neighbors, but were fought back, and the decisive role in this conflict was played by Ners, to whom this monument was raised. They came to the aid of Rags. From deciphering the inscriptions can be understood that Ners worked in those places as workers for hire. After the conflict, they received a part of bordering with the Danes arable lands as property, for which they pledged to guard them against the encroachments of the Danes.

As you can see, a Russian scientist has produced quite an understandable text, which has nothing to do with cloudy Swedish fictions about some obscure two-booties, which were somehow taken twelve times. Let’s look at some more Scandinavian runic stones, which recently began to “speak” in Slavic:

The stone, depicted in the first photo, is in Norway and dates back to the 4th-6th centuries A.D. On it, a large symbol is “chiseled”, which covers almost half of the entire stone, and the runic inscription. Judging by the inscriptions and the symbols, this stone is also dedicated to the fallen warriors. The inscription reads: “These men are in Heavenly Rus at night, others still live”, and the symbol, which resembles the rune “Pe”, can represent the fallen warriors’ affiliation to the army of Perun, the Slavic deity. Interesting information, is it not? From it, it can be concluded, that at least from the 4th to 6th century A.D. on the territory of modern Norway the state of Heavenly (or Divine) Rus existed, the people of which spoke Slavic, wrote Slavic runes and honored Slavic deities.

Another rune stone from Norway says: “Ra in the night, that is, in a hole. A Bog (deity) says in the night: that is Borobog rejoicing, he destroyed Ra this night. Borobog, he is. The young sun rises, Ra is going to set down on Rus.” Sokol-Kutylovsky suggests that the inscription can be understood as a representation of the ancient Slavs on the cause of the onset of winter and the polar night. It is unusual to see the name of the “Egyptian” deity Ra in the Slavic runic inscriptions in Northern Europe, but, as it turns out, it is seen there very often, and represents the sun, and Borobog – the deity of wind and cold.

And here is another stone from Norway. It is called “The Eggja rune stone”, on behalf of the village, near which it was found. It contains approximately 184 runic symbols, is composed of two very long lines, and presumably tells the story of climate change – an unusually early onset of warming, the cause of which may be flashes on the sun-Ra, which is called piebald (spotted). The scientist managed to confidently read two-thirds of the text: “Those ners are crying. The peg (spotted) sun is sleeping. The winter gives its snow. Its heat scorches that water, as there is no cold wind in those snowy nights. It is said, that by reading (they) want to call that Sun to its (place) from his (current place) … for it is not time, for it scorches little in the winter … not strongly the sun expels the cold wind, but now strongly. Mara is on that Sun. Sometimes (once) it is hot early, another (time) no … scorches … “

On the runic stone from Sweden, which is dated the first half of the first millennium A.D., we read: “You remember long their time, for that time (leaves) into the darkness: the river of time flows for eternity. And this Rboniv grove also.” The name Rbon was quite common in early medieval Scandinavia, and it can be seen quite often on runic stones and monuments. This name had different variants of pronunciation: Rabon, Rboni, Rbonnis.

Another Swedish stone spoke in Slavic that: “This was placed, so read. If (you) do not want war, know – this boundary is of another.” In other words, this stone – the border pillar of 4th – 6th centuries A.D. with a warning inscription. The watchdogs, depicted on it, correspond to it.

The Inscriptions on Bracteates

Many Scandinavian bracteates are known to exist. About their abundance indicates the major work of the German scientist S. Novak of 920 pages, which is entirely devoted to golden bracteates. However, this work does not contain a single translation because no runic inscription on them was read with the aid of German runes, and it’s of no surprise. After all, these inscriptions can only be read with Slavic runes! Nevertheless, the entire “scientific” world continues to count bracteates, and the inscriptions on them – Germanic.

The runic inscription on the first bracteate from the island of Gotland simply reads – “Boje” (Bog, deity or “god” in modern Judaic religions), the second “Boje, protect”, therefore the bracteate was a keepsake or a protection talisman. On the third, it’s written “Bog Ra, Bog Ka”. Here is how Sokol-Kutylovsky describes this bracteate: “Since only solar symbols are depicted on this bracteate, the central figure represents the “solar” Bog (deity) in motion. The hands of this Bog are bent at right angles and form a rune “Ra”, and the svastika (or Kolovrat) located behind it, is formed with runes “Ka”. At the same time, the Sun-Bog, as befits the Sun, moves in a clockwise direction. Each appearance (birth) of the Sun Bog, Ra – Ra-Svet (dawn), and every one of his disappearances (death), Ka – Za-KaT (sunset). The etymology of words rasvet (dawn) and zakat (sunset) my have something to do with the meaning of the periodic appearance and disappearance of the sun. Exactly that, that the svastika is a moving image of the sun – we know from many sources, but only in the Slavic syllabic runic writing there is a rune, which simultaneously contains the oldest sound value, and the oldest graphic representation of the sun.” The next two bracteates also mention the Sun Bog. The inscription reads: “Ra is eternal.”

The Casket from the British Museum

Sokol-Kutylovsky unlocked another centuries-old mystery by reading the Slavic runes on a small casket, known in the literature as “Franks casket”. It was found in Auzon (France) in the 19th century, and in 1867, the English antiquarian Franks gave it to the British Museum, where it still can be found. The missing right panel was discovered in 1890 in Italy and is now kept in the National Museum in Florence. Dimensions of the box are 12.9×22.9×19.1 cm. It is completely covered with carved ivory figures and inscriptions, made as with runic symbols, as with Latin characters. In 1,300 years, no one was able to read it. They tried, of course, but then came to the amazing conclusion that on the casket made of whalebone, written a poem about … whalebone. And it is good that it happened, otherwise the box would certainly have not been preserved. If the British knew that the inscriptions on it were in Britain by people who spoke Slavic language, rather than the “Old English”, and Slavic runes, rather than the “Anglo-Saxon” … it is doubtful they would store and preserve it so carefully and openly expose it in the British Museum.

On the top panel of the casket, just a short runic inscription is carved “Foreign”. Under “foreign” here, are the ruler, sitting in the palace, and his protection in the form of a warrior, an archer, on the right side panel. These “foreign” are located within the fortress (or castle). The text on the front of the casket reads: “Bog Wolf, hide this secret casket not forever. The wolf growl will return. Wolflike will roar for you my wolf-mother, her wolf children will bark so. Always waiting for the eternal ruin of it from Rome. It is not of wolf. He, Wolf, established (cult, law) forever.”

On the back panel the following text is written: “Establish peace and understand: for that Romans forever give you life and take (as) eternal slaves. Rugy, Rusy. Eternal they are eternal, that eternal power of Rome the Wolf will devour.”

The left side panel reads: “Wolf, give (strength) as it is impossible not to scream. The (new) chief takes, hides (withholds) salary, for the warrior chief was replaced. Because of him daughter cries. He lives importantly (wealthy) and sets the work (for us) not according to wolf (not in accordance to the norms set by the previous chief) warrior people.”

Unfortunately, to exactly pinpoint a dozen characters on the right panel proved to be very difficult, so no coherent text came out. The scientist was able to identify only some possible words: “to establish”, “to solve”, “people”, “chest”, “full”, “gold”, “want”, “wealth” and some others. The mention of Bog Wolf sounds unusual. It turns out that until the middle of 7th century, in Britain, there was a cult of the Wolf. A more unusual is the mention of Rugy and Rusy as indigenous people of the British Isles. We have heard more of Celts than of anything, and the more educated – about the Britons and the Picts …

The Ruthwell Cross

Another monument with ancient Slavic runes can be located in the small Scottish village of Ruthwell. The height of the cross is 5.5 meters, it dates back to approximately the last quarter of the 7th century A.D. This cross stood near the altar of the Ruthwell church until 1642, until the Assembly of the Church of Scotland chose to destroy this vestige of Roman paganism. And the fact that this cross is pagan – no doubt. In the central upper part of the cross, the Sun is depicted. A falcon is depicted on top, on the crossbar – a rooster, and some large animal, whether an ox or a cow. Below, an archer is depicted. On the reverse side of the crossbar – a fish with an open mouth, and perhaps – a swan. The decision was partially fulfilled: the cross was dismantled and one part of the cross was buried in the cemetery, and another part was thrown into the trench in the courtyard of the church and used for paving. At the beginning of the 19th century, the cross was restored from the surviving fragments.

In all encyclopedias, reference books and textbooks, it is asserted that the Ruthwell Cross is a monument to Old English literature. On it, in Anglo-Saxon runes, a poem written in verses about the crucifixion of Christ. Apparently, following the same logic according to which upon the casket of whalebone must be a runic poem about whalebone, it is necessary for the Ruthwell Cross to contain a poem about the cross. What is interesting, the text of the poem is provided. Even more interesting, is that the English themselves cannot read a single word of this runic poem. It is said that to modern English it was translated by some unnamed Italian pilgrim, who, for whatever reason, did not translate into English the Latin inscriptions, which are also on the cross and are allegedly either quotations from the Bible, or the names of the characters depicted on the cross.

Sokol-Kutylovsky read the runic inscriptions on this cross, using the Slavic runes. Naturally, none of them speak of neither the crucifixion of Christ, nor are they quotations from the Bible. So what is there? There are mentions of Ra, Yara, Mara and the Wolf – a cult that existed in Britain up to about the middle of the 7th century, and which probably replaced the cult of Yara. “It is (the followers of) Ra-Yara say (to the followers) of Ra-Wolf … The gift of the temple of Bog Yara, not to live in the darkness, for the Divine Law is not set for them, asks them to call to Yara. Close that Ra of Wolf, for life is arranged differently … Ra-Wolf was established by Rome, it gave Ra, but took Rus, the Ra-Wolf is not eternal. After defeating Rus, they (Romans) walk, and honor their heavenly Mother, people sing and believe in her.”

Thus, the scientist again clearly demonstrated that, at least until the 7th century A.D., the British Isles spoke in Slavic, wrote in Slavic runes and honored Slavic deities.

Summarizing the above, we get an interesting picture. In the first millennium A.D., in Northern Europe, lived tribes who called themselves Rugami, Ragas, Ners and Rusy, spoke Slavic languages and honored Slavic deities, and this land was called the Heavenly Rus. Slavic speech sounded in Scandinavia until the 9th century A.D.! Then, there was the first crusade against the Slavs, after which the Slavic lands ceased to be, and their inhabitants were all destroyed!

… and so, Rus became Europe …
