In the heart of Europe, an endangered Turkic language lives on

The dwindling Karaim language was once spoken across eastern Europe. Now its last stronghold is a fortress town in Lithuania — and Romuald Čaprockij one of its most ardent defenders

Contrary to the assertions of Seraya Shapshal and Romuald Čaprockij, the Karaites of Eastern Europe are not descended from the Khazars at all. They are descended from Karaite Jews who lived in the Byzantine Empire and the Middle East. Their genetic background is strongly Middle Eastern as I discovered through my genetic study published after peer review as "The Genetics of Crimean Karaites" in the journal Karadeniz Araştırmaları No. 42 (Summer 2014) on pages 69-84.
