Positions on JerusalemEdit

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 <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). arily of the Dynasty. 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.

Draft page about Vasily StavitskyEdit

Hi! I've edited a draft page about Vasily Stavitsky, a Russian author and a former head of the FSB public relations centre. Just wanted to share it with the community, so that the article could be further improved and hopefully moved to the main space. --Document hippo (talk) 12:02, 25 March 2020 (UTC)

Article titles for rivers in Russia, Ukraine and BelarusEdit

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)


While hunting for CS1 errors I encountered this orphan article tagged as of interest to this WikiProject. I cleaned some cite template errors, removed references/citations linked to Google Docs, email attachments, Google Drive, and one blacklisted site. I am not a subject matter expert nor do I understand Russian. Perhaps someone here is and does.
