Train accident?[edit]

I've read about a train accident in Ufa in 1989, can we have more on this.

  • It was not in Ufa, but between the stations of Ulu-Telyak and Asha, somewhat 200 km to the east of Ufa. It is one of the worst train accidents in the Soviet Union. Here you can find out more. --unpluggged 13:58, 16 November 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • If it was close by then I think it would be best to merge the pages, since the article seems very short. --Green Hill 07:35, 10 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Is this person really famous in Europe? On what grounds? I can find no relevant Google hits at all, and the book cited by User:Lionosmon in Stachnikov is not listed by Amazon website.---CH (talk) 02:57, 1 October 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Famous People

I removed a name from the list, as it is not referenced. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Weetabizz (talkcontribs) 21:40, 6 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The naming of Ufa[edit]

This article claims that Ufa is named from the Turkic word for small. This seems untrue to me since the Turkic word for small is kuchuk or kichik. Also there is no cite for this information and it is not consistent with the Russian article about the city (which is cited in regards to the naming of Ufa) nor with what I was told by the locals when I lived there for 10 months. I'm not sure how to go about submitting this for review, but I would like to help improve this articles accuracy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:16, 5 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article also claims that Ufa in Bashkir means "dark water" which is not true. I speak Bashkir and know it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:22, 17 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ufak (from root ufa) also means small or smallish in same Turkic (Turkish)dialects. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:26, 12 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Government Nomenclature[edit]

can someone please clarify why the Government section refers for "Government of the Republic of Belarus"? Ufa is a part of the Russian federation not Belarus. Should it perhaps be "Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan"? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:15, 22 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

You are right; it should have been "Bashkortostan". I have fixed it, but there is still plenty of cleanup left to do (mostly grammar). Thanks for catching this.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); January 24, 2011; 15:39 (UTC)

Notable People -- Salawat Yulayev[edit]

Looking at this article's history, I saw that someone changed the entry under Notable People for Salawat Yulayev from "rebel" to "national hero". Looking at Salawat Yulayev on Wikipedia, it appears this is a POV conflict (he rebelled against Russia, which is why he is a Bashkir national hero); I have attempted to make the entry NPOV by mentioning both with a bit more context.

Ethnic composition[edit]

How come russian wiki states that % of Barshkirs is 14,76, but in this article it's 29,5? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:24, 27 October 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Demographic data appears to be wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:05, 30 May 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Notable people: Rudolf Nureyev[edit]

Should not Rudolf Nureyev be included in the list of Notable People?. At least I heard in many films about him, and also his Wikipedia article seems to confirm, that after being born in a train, he lived and was raised in (a rural village close to) Ufa for many years. May be even that his family was already located in Ufa before he was born, but I do not know. If the information is correct and he meets the necessary conditions to be included in the list, I think he should. He is one of the most known, admired, and loved people from that region, even years after his death. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pmronchi (talkcontribs) 15:58, 30 December 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

2015: Energy Agreements[edit]

  • China, Russia, India, Iran and other nations are establishing financial, economic, political and energy infrastructure partnerships that are changing global relations irrevocably. A few days before the Vienna nuclear negotiations finally culminated in an agreement, all of this came together at a twin BRICS/SCO summit in Ufa, Russia.
