I think Lithuania geography is underrated. Full acknowledgment to interesting Dieveniskes Appendix. But one day it will disappear because Lithuania shall.. and will.. have the sexy 1920 assigned border with Belarus.
My topic on the situation -
Pure bred Slav Great grandmother and North African-Arabic-Turk Great Grandfather. Their daughter was my grandmother and Grandfather was of Romani ancestry. Their son, my father married my pure Romani mother.
I got all kinds of mix
Grandmother was fairly visibly mixed race negroid like but 2 generations of romani blood and I look almost indistinguishable from inner romanis or Gypsies. I don't look close to slavs or mix bred romani-slavs but yeah
