The calculation of genetic distances of 55 human populations belonging to four great human races considering loci of proteins, enzymes and blood groups, and construction the dendrogram of these populations distinguished some relationship of German, Slavic and Finnish-Ugric populations. So, Russians are close by genetic distances with Poles, Iranians, Komi, Chuvashes, Udmurtians, Nentses and Ossetians. Germans are close with Serbs, Moldavians, Hungarians, Croatians and Czechs. The calculation of genetic distances of 35 Slavic, Finnish and Germanic populations, and constructing the dendrogram confirmed these results. The ancestors of Russians were migrated from places of first differentiation in Asia across the circumpolar area, and before were lived on the North of Siberia. Ancient German populations were migrated in Europe across the South of Siberia, probably by the same way as Hunnu in future time. The investigation of settlements of ancient Caucasoids in Central Asia probably discovered place of living of ancient German populations. The studying of mt DNA of rural Russian population in Yaroslavsky region discovered all haplogroups of Russians and even Caucasoids (H, W, I, U, X, T1).
