Why the Armour of Russian warlords of the XIV-XVII centuries was all covered with Arabic inscriptions from Quran they could not possibly read? Or could they? Russian Czars Alexander Nevsky and Ivan the Terrible wore helmets with Arabic inscriptions. Were the thousands of helmets, swords, sabers, shields, and armor with Arabic inscriptions kept in the Armoury of Kremlin the rich spoils of war with Arabs, Turks, or the souvenirs of their ambassadors to Russian Czars?
Nope, they are neither the spoils of war of victorious Russian Horde troops nor the presents from subjugated kingdoms and princes. They all were made in Russia by Russian craftsmen of the XIV-XVII centuries. According to Dr. Fomenko et al Russia was in XIII-XVII a trilingual state with Russian, Arabic, and Turkic as three official languages. Letters considered Arabic nowadays were used for transcribing Russian words. Russia, Europe, Turkey, and Persia had been part of the same Great = “Mongolian” Empire in XIII – XVI until it disintegrated during the Great Strife.
