If you look at where Ferdowsi is from, and the history of that region, it may make more sense. Also, since Iranians don’t trust the regime, the best versions along with the movies (and some of the most expensive printed books) are considered from Moscow.

lol, I know where Ferdowsi is from, thanks. Since you don’t read or speak Persian, I am wondering where you got the Persian link from. I found your comment misleading.

Had you said Tajikistan or even Afghanistan (about Ferdowsi)- “in the region” - it would have made much more sense to me; historically too.

Try looking for Tajikistan in particular & for “movies” about Shahmaneh too. By the way, Afghans & Tajiks are not Russians; certainly not “the Moskovite Russians” to have had any historical interest in Shahmaneh.

As for region: Iran, as known for past 100 years, at least & today, shares a massive border with Russia & is in “the region”; not to mention that centuries ago, prior to and during Ferdowsi’s era, Iran actually included Afghanistan & Tajikistan, republic of Azarbaijan and a few others on its Eastern border, which you now call in “that region”.
