things get different as you head out from that eastern coastal area..thats when you get mongols, and turkish ethnic groups...and possibly even a village descended from roman soldiers who survived the crassus boo-boo and fled east doing mercenary work. I know the city of xinhua (or however the **** thats spelled, thats a ******** of consonants) is having serious ethnic clashes, because the government has been moving a lot of Han Chinese into the city, and the Uighur Turks are convinced the Chinese are trying to breed them into extinction or force them out, or something like that.
That's a pretty accurate description of China.

If Zherdev wants his name to be spelled Nikoly, then fine. I don't see what the fuss is about.
