I would say it's offensive the using of the Rurik's origin in German chauvinist propaganda against us. For them there is no difference between the Germans and Vikings.

True. Fact is that Germans probably have same amount of viking heritage as Russians, Ukrainians and Poles do.  ;) Most of Western and Southern Germany was Celtic before it became Germanic through Saxon, Frank, Gothic and other Germanic invasions, assimilations and settlements.
