  1. Moskal

    Moskal (Russian and Ukrainian: москаль, Belarusian: маскаль, Polish: moskal, Hungarian: muszka, Lithuanian: maskolis; Romanian: muscal) is a historical designation used for the residents of the Grand Duchy of Moscow from the 12th-18th centuries. Today it has become an ethnic slur referring to the Russians living in Russia used in Ukraine, Belarus, and Poland. The term is frequently derogatory or condescending, an equivalent of the Russian term Khokhol for Ukrainians. Another ethnic slur, katsap, is insulting and means "goatee beard". Another version is that the word katsap comes from the Crimean kasab (butcher), because Muscovite soldiers carried large axes, which made them look like butchers.
