I recall some chatter about the Voynich Manuscript some time ago about it finally being decoded, however I think they were markedly off base.
A gentleman by the name of Tom O'Neil appears to have made a striking discovery. Note his YouTube video.
First, aim your attention at this post:
Notice the striking similarity of the Russian Basilica and the illustration from the Voynich Manuscript:
I then saw these images with the font-ized version of the Voynich Manuscript characters and was blown away to realize the comparison not only to Russian - BUT to Sanskrit:
Review the writing within the Voynich Manuscript:
It seems to me that this manuscript is a different scriptic northern style of Sanskrit Sharada script used in much writing in India. The similarities seem remarkable. Notice this article and a simple image search for "sharada script" or "devanagari script".
Notice the Sanskrit from Croatia:
I was once told by a brilliant linguist who was a military code breaker with over 70 languages under his belt that Russian is nothing more than Romanized (Cyrillic) Sanskrit. This was corroborated by this brilliant effort by Constantine Borissoff: Russian - Sanskrit Dictionary of Common and Cognate Words and draft of Russian-Sanskrit Dictionary (modern Russian PDF).
(Side note: it is interesting that the method the Estrucans used where they would "snake write / read" letters / words left to right and then right to left such that they would read in a continual line instead of going to the end of a line and then resetting to the left again could be why modern Russian letters seem so peculiar to modern English / Roman language readers. See Etruscan Volume I by Paul Schaffranke and Harry Hubbard as well as other videos where Etruscan is mentioned or discussed.)
While the historical narrative has been that the Russian people did not have a written language and that the monks essentially manufactured one, I believe we have discovered the root of Russian language and we can see that it is simply a Sanskrit script similar to those noted above that are used in the other regions that also received Vedic / Sanskrit influence.
I think the Voynich Manuscript may now be properly decoded and perhaps even more interesting literature and ancient writings can be uncovered (if the communists have not destroyed them or buried them so deep so as to never gain access).
