Viking roots in Ukraine - history of Vikings in Ukraine (Kievan Rus') ... Rus' has clear Ukrainian origin, there is no doubt about that, but Vikings were smaller part of Ukraine-Rus' history.
There were nine waves of southward migrations of Scandinavians from their severe northern lands in the period from the 6th to 11th century AD. The Vikings role in the early history of Ukraine had been a particularly significant one.
