or in fact mostly speakers of Iranian and Oghur languages in south Slavs R1a peaks in Croats historian J. Bury has no doubt that Croatian legend of origin is same as the one of Bulgarians and is about same Hunnic nation to which related tribes of Bulgars, Cotrigurs and Onogundurs belonged to... id=w DI...page&q&f=false Turkish historian Osman Karatay also speaks of turkish origin of proto-Croats and identifies white-Croats with white-Ogurs note also: ak (turkic white = west) Hur = Ak Hur = Oghur = west/white Hurians = white/west Croats (white is color used to denote west in steppe cultures) worth nothing is that among R1a there is also M458 branch that is present in Europe (along with other R1a branches) but rare in Asia.
