I try to avoid writing about Ukraine. It's such a stupid topic that in most news it will seem like I'm making it up, people can not really say it all. But sometimes it breaks through me :)
For example, on Monday, Ukrainian political scientist Alexander Paliy shared new information that King Arthur was a native of Ukraine. He writes that in the UK the theory is popular, according to which King Arthur belonged to the Sarmatians who inhabited the territory from the Black to the Aral Sea in the II-III centuries. According to Palia, traces of the stay of this people are found in Ukraine. And concludes that Arthur's ancestors were Ukrainians.
Earlier, Ukrainians, including historians and scientists, argued that the Ukrainian roots are Christ, Buddha, Christopher Columbus. In the Ukrainian language he wrote poems of the ancient Greek Ovid. In general, the brother of the former president of Ukraine, the historian Peter Yushchenko, asserts that the ancient Greek philosophers spoke in Ukrainian. In a word, I can not remember everyone, it was necessary to write down immediately, as it happened :) If on any of the facts there are doubts, do not hesitate, I will find and share a link to the source :)
However, I will add a little more specifics.
Doctor of Science, Professor, historian Lev Ivanovich Pshenko made a sensational statement: in his opinion, ancient Palestine was originally inhabited by tribes related to modern Ukrainians, and all the Old Testament kings and prophets may have had Ukrainian roots.

Candidate of Psychological Sciences and Doctor of Political Sciences, Chairman of the Board of the All-Ukrainian Political Association, Honorary Academician of the International Personnel Academy, Vice-Rector of the University of Ukraine Valery Bebik, argues that the Ukrainian civilization gave birth to outstanding world prophets, philosophers and leaders, in particular, Jesus Christ and Buddha.
"Christ actually lived three thousand years before his" canonical "birth and spoke (like Queen Nefertiti) in Coptic, close to the ancestral language of modern Ukrainians," the Ukrainian professor said.
"Jesus is the Hellenic version of the name Yas, meaning "clear", "bright". Such names as Yasus, Yazion, and Jason were familiar to the ancient Hellas, their Ukrainian correspondences are the names Yas', Yasko, Yatsko, and the Greek word 'chrestos' means "the best, kind, noble". Bebik argued, in his opinion, Jesus was from the sect of the Essenes who came from Prykarpattya, and given the factor of "land," and the fact that Ukrainian blood was flowing in the veins of the Galileans, it must be considered that Jesus was a Ukrainian.
Since Ukrainian civilization, according to Ukrainian historians, has, no less, 140 thousand years, then almost any historical person can tie to Ukrainian roots.
