Y chromosomes from representative sample of Eastern Ukrainians (94 individuals) were analyzed for composition and frequencies of haplogroups, defined by 11 biallelic loci located in non-recombining part of the chromosome (SRY1532, YAP, 92R7, DYF155S2, 12f2, Tat, M9, M17, M25,M89, andM56). In the Ukrainian gene, pool six haplogroups were revealed: E, F (including G and I), J, N3, P, and R1a1. These haplogroups were earlier detected in a study of Y-chromosome diversity on the territory of Europe… 
Gene pool differences between Northern and Southern Altaians inferred from the data on Y-chromosomal haplogroups
TLDR
The data of factor analysis, variance analysis, cluster analysis, and phylogenetic analysis point to substantial genetic differentiation of Northern and Southern Altaians.
Gene-pool structure of Tuvinians inferred from Y-chromosome marker data
TLDR
It was demonstrated that, in Tuvinians, haplogroup N1c1 was the most heterogeneous in haplotype profile and consisted of three different haplotype clusters, demonstrating considerable differences of western population from the rest of the Tuva populations.
The origin of Yakuts: Analysis of the Y-chromosome haplotypes
TLDR
The results suggest a significant contribution of the local Paleolithic component to the Y-chromosome gene pool of Yakuts and Ethnogenetic reconstructions were inferred from the diversity and phylogeography of the N3a haplogroup in Siberia.
Gene pool of Buryats: Clinal variability and territorial subdivision based on data of Y-chromosome markers
TLDR
The evaluation of the genetic differentiation of the examined samples using an analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) shows that the Buryat gene pool is highly differentiated by haplotype frequencies.
Distinguishing the co-ancestries of haplogroup G Y-chromosomes in the populations of Europe and the Caucasus
TLDR
No clinal patterns were detected suggesting that the distributions are rather indicative of isolation by distance and demographic complexities, and the P303 SNP defines the most frequent and widespread G sub-haplogroup.
Frequencies of Y Chromosome Binary Haplogroups in Belarussians
TLDR
The compositions and frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroups identified by genotyping 23 biallelic loci of its nonrecombining region (YAP, 92R7, DYF155S2, 12f2) have been determined in a sample of 68 Belarussians.
Comparative characteristics of the gene pool of Teleuts inferred from Y-chromosomal marker data
TLDR
The results of the comparative analysis suggested that the gene pool of Bachat Teleuts was formed on the basis of at least two heterogeneous genetic components, probably associated with ancient Turkic and Samoyedic ethnic components.
Paleo-Balkan and Slavic Contributions to the Genetic Pool of Moldavians: Insights from the Y Chromosome
TLDR
Phylogenetic and AMOVA analyses based on Y-STR loci revealed that Moldavians are close to both eastern/central European and Balkan-Carpathian populations, which allow to hypothesize that extant Moldavian paternal genetic lineages arose from extensive recent admixture between genetically autochthonous populations of the Balkan, Carpathian zone and neighboring Slavic groups.
Genetic diversity of the Khakass gene pool: Subethnic differentiation and the structure of Y-chromosome haplogroups
TLDR
Factor and cluster analysis, as well as AMOVA, suggest that the Khakass gene pool is structured by territory and subethnic groups.
Ancient DNA provides new insights into the history of south Siberian Kurgan people
TLDR
The data indicate that at the Bronze and Iron Age timeframe, south Siberians were blue (or green)-eyed, fair-skinned and light-haired people and that they might have played a role in the early development of the Tarim Basin civilization.

TLDR
This is the first Y-chromosomal evidence of major European admixture with indigenous Polynesian populations and contrasts sharply with the picture given by mtDNA evidence.
Polymorphism of the Y-Chromosome Diallelic Loci in Ethnic Groups of the Altai–Sayan Region
TLDR
It was established that the Altai–Sayan populations studied split into two statistically significantly different groups, one of the groups was represented by Tuvinians, Sojots, and Khakassians, while another one was comprised of Shorians and Altaians.

The genetic heritage of the earliest settlers persists both in Indian tribal and caste populations.
TLDR
Results show that Indian tribal and caste populations derive largely from the same genetic heritage of Pleistocene southern and western Asians and have received limited gene flow from external regions since the Holocene.
Y chromosomal polymorphisms reveal founding lineages in the Finns and the Saami
TLDR
In the Finns a majority of the haplotypes could be assigned to two distinct groups, one of which harboured the C allele of the Tat polymorphism, indicating dichotomous primary source of genetic variation among Finnish males.
Mitochondrial DNA variability in Russians and Ukrainians: Implication to the origin of the Eastern Slavs
TLDR
It is concluded that the Slavonic migrations in early Middle Ages from their putative homeland in central Europe to the east of Europe were accompanied mostly by the same mtDNA types characteristic for the pre‐Slavonic populations of eastern Europe.
Y-chromosomal diversity in Europe is clinal and influenced primarily by geography, rather than by language.
TLDR
These patterns retain a strong signal of expansion from the Near East but also suggest that the demographic history of Europe has been complex and influenced by other major population movements, as well as by linguistic and geographic heterogeneities and the effects of drift.
