Russia is the biggest country in the world, spanning one-eighth of the earth’s landmass. But where did it all begin? Alex Gendler explores the epic history of the Kievan Rus, where characters ranging from Viking raiders and Western crusaders to Byzantine missionaries and Mongol hordes all played a role to create a unique civilization standing at the crossroads of culture and geography.

Lesson by Alex Gendler, animation by Draško Ivezić.

They got country teritorys, locations and names wrong I am very disapointed in you TED.
Where is the part when the later Russians colonised Sibera and the Far East? The Cossacks, Nenet and Tungusic wars, the Russian explorers, the small people of the North? This only covered Euro-Russia

There where no "three parts" of slavs.
Novgorodians invited Rurik to rule (as they did with almost every prince till they were captured by Moscow), but it doesn't gave any rights to his successors to rule any other Rus.
Oleg was not a son of Rurik - he was, probably, brother of his wife and uncle of his son, Igor.
Kyiv was never "an outpost of Khazar Empire".
Can't stand this nonsense any more.

Russian people are from mongols, not slavic

We’ve harnessed electricity, sequenced the human genome, and eradicated smallpox. But after billions of dollars in research, we haven’t found a solution for a disease that affects more than 14 million people and their families at any given time. Why is it so difficult to cure cancer? Kyuson Yun explains the challenges.
