It’s very strange that at the beginning of 21st century there are people who are eager to repeat and broadcast the Russian historical myth multiplying historical lies created in Moscow and based on stolen history and name. It’s time to close this matter and to provide modern view of true “Russian” history.
Are there educated enough historians capable to rethink and review Russian lies and offer a real history of Moscovia?

A note on ‘Ivan the Terrible’ – in Russia, Ivan IV has the epithet ‘Гро́зный’ meaning ‘Great’ or ‘Formidable’. So why is he known as Ivan ‘the Terrible’ in English? Because he was evil or useless or because of anti-Russian bias? No, because ‘Terrible’ in English also means awesome or formidable – this was well understood when ‘Гро́зный’ was first translated into English centuries ago, but now fewer people understand this. <…> The name stuck, and Ivan IV has been known as Ivan the Terrible ever since.
