You know, for those who lived in the Soviet Union, the question makes no sense. For decades, we were all steaming in one common stew. And while there is way more nationalistic awareness in "post-Soviet space", old ties die hard. This is why Russia is not paranoid about Islam of Central Asia. And there were so many mixed marriages in old times, it does not even matter, who is Chuvash, and who is not. All the more so that Chuvashia is ethnically heterogeneous, too. Russian nationalism never runs deep. I seriously doubt it was ever in Russian nature, because as a huge country, it absorbed so many ethnic groups.
And now a hidden Chuvash Arkteia migrated to the USA to control that country! Chuvash forever!
