I've read that Magyar "runes" have been found in
Ukraine. I've also read that the Magyars appear in
various chronicles, including in Arabic before they
arrived in Hungary. Given the location of Magyars's
closest congeners and this trace along a straight line
between Hungary and the Urals, that should settle it.
