Description[edit | edit source]
The Bashkirs are a Turkic-speaking nation in the southern Urals. Since the end of the 16th century, the Bashkirs were vassals of the Russian tsar, but have since participated in several uprisings against the Russian government. Today most of the Bashkirs live in the Bashkortostan Republic which is part of the Russian Federation.
