That's what happens to us poor Scandinavians all the time. No one
discovers it when we're being sarcastic. Sigh.

One of the confluents to Don river near the region of Azov is called
Horvatos (see [Pascenko], p. 87). The Croatian name can be traced on
different sites in Ukraine, also around Krakow in Poland, Bohemia,
Austria, thus showing migrations of the Croatian tribes to their
future homeland.
