I read this exchange. I think you are wrong when stating that "The fact checkow called himself 'maloross' in certain contexts ("Little Russian") does not mean he was Ukrainian. Little Russia is a geographical concept inhabited by Ukrainians, Russians, Ukrainian Cossacks, Russian Cossacks, Serbs, Germans, and who else not. It did have a distinct "South Russian" cultural identity, and that's what Chechow had in mind, not his ethnicity."
In Chekhov's times in Russian empire, "maloross" meant Ukrainian. You can check with any unbiased Russian to confirm. When people were saying that they are "maloross" they meant Ukrainian, not that they are Germans with a distinct "South Russian" cultural identity or "who else not". By the same token, if I would say that I am Canadian, you would respond with "no. you actually do not mean that. you mean that you possess a distinct Canadian cultural identity, not the ethnicity." Most of the time you would be plain wrong because Canadian actually means Canadian.
Just wonder if Chekhov has ever called himself Russian. Also wonder why those occasions are not dismissed with the statement "oh. he was joking. that is not what he had in mind." 2600:1700:25E0:9870:C579:6A35:1B82:920E (talk) 05:48, 30 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Chekhov knew Ukrainian and one of his friends — Maria Zankovetska was trying to convince him to publish his writings in Ukrainian language instead of Russian. Chekhov preferred to publish in Russian because he was dreaming of an actual career as a writer. Publishing in Ukrainian would make that few magnitudes harder as Ukrainian identity and language were suppressed by Russian Imperial regime for over a century already at the time.

He was Ukrainian by ethnicity BTW[edit]
