German and Austrian scholars tried hard to connect Albanians with Illyrians in the past 1-2 centuries out of political reasons. since they perceived value in creating a separate Albanian identity and state in Balkans after Turks were to leave the area.
It is because of their effort that today some are trying to make a connection between Albanians and Illyrians
Here is one of the stars of this effort
Gustav Meyer: a prominent scholar
At the end of the 18th century – specifically in 1774 – the renowned historian Johann Erich Thunmann in his work "Studies on the history of the eastern European peoples" – (Untersuchungen über die Geschichte der östlichen europäischen Völker) wrote "No other people in the part of the world in which we live are as unknown to us Western Europeans in terms of ancestry, history and language as Albanians and Aromanians. And yet they are key people, ancient and important people that every historian would want to know: their history would fill the great gaps in Europe's ancient and new history” .
It is a well known fact that among foreign scholars who have dealt with the Albanian language, the role of German and Austrian scholars has been dominant. Their Albanological studies have formed an excellent and long tradition over 3 centuries, a tradition that has continued to develop over time and is still preserved today. The beginning of historical-comparative linguistics put the study of the Albanian language on a scientific basis starting in the mid-nineteenth century. One of the founders of these linguistics, the prominent German scientist Franz Bopp, proved the Indo-European character of the Albanian language, while Gustav Meyer, Norbert Jokl, etc., more closely defined the place of Albanian in the Indo-European language family .
Gustav Meyer – who was termed by N. Jokl as the "Master of Albanology"– is regarded by today's linguistic scholars as "The greatest Albanologist of his time". David Luka, on the occasion of the 145th anniversary of the birth of this erudite intellectual, noted that Meyer should be regarded as "scholar with unusual intuition” whereas, according to the General Encyclopedia of Zagreb, Meyer is also described as "the founder of Balkan linguistics." A scholar with an unusual intuition, and with excellent training, Meyer also excelled in both Neo-Greek studies and in Turkish studies, precisely by giving additional contributions to the study of Albanian language etymology. He is also regarded as one of the most prominent Indo-European scholars of the 19th century.
An objective shortcoming in the historical studies of Albanian is its late documentation, which is well known, given the fact that the present state of our knowledge begins with the 15th century. The thought that “the main reason for our flawed knowledge of Albanian history is the lack of resources”  implies that in the absence of ancient sources, Albanian, though an ancient language itself, lags behind not only classical languages, but also other Indo-European languages, such as German, Celtic and Armenian. In this aspect Albanian would stand at a level with the Baltic languages, Lithuanian and Latvian, and in the Balkan region with Romanian .
Not just the balkans, also western euro most probably was inhabited by Slavs, in one of their various forms. Italy can serve as a prime example. And the huge similarities between Latin and Slavic. It is more than evident that Germanic, Latin and Greek are products coming from the same Slavic backbone.
Indians and Thrakians (Sanscrit Slavs) were the dominant culture of Eurasia.
Greeks, Latins, Germans were created by some force to lessen the Slavs, this is being constantly proven, every day.
The fact that Putin and Co haven't touched those matters is a sign that those guys are either idiots or traitors.

Rusyn: @leandros nikon Vatra is "fire" in Serbian, and Pyrros is Greek equvialent of that name. Also Pyrros was used to be known as Kralj Vatra in his older accounts hence Admin calls him both ways.
