Romanian authorities have denied Russian researcher A.I. Umnov-Denisov’s entrance in Romania when he came to the country to hold a conference about what he calls the Slavic origin of the Dacian people – the tribes known as the precedessors of the Romanian people.
He was sent back to Russia from the Bucharest International Airport Henry Coandă, the Russian Embassy announced in a Facebook post on Tuesday, The Russian researchers had come to Romania to present his pan-Slavic theses that claim that the Romanian language is not linked in any way to Latin, as it is commonly known and accepted.
The Russian official propaganda ocnstantly uses such theses in attempts to weaken links between Romania and the West.
Umnov-Denisov was about to hold a lecture on Dacian Tribes – who they are and where they are from, at the Russian Center of Science and Culture which had opened in Bucharest following a deal between Russia and Romania in 2013, when the PSD-led Victor Ponta government was in office.
The Russian researchers were also about to hold letures at the Vasile Parvan archeology institute in Bucharest and the Andrei Saguna University in the Black Sea city of Constanta, according to the Russian Embassy message.
Umnov-Denisov’s theses are already promoted in Romania by various websites which push Russian anti-Western propaganda.
