Etymology[eedit | eedit soorce]

Meshchane in the Roushie Empire denotit a social estate o poor toun residents who did no qualify as merchants or ceevil servants; in modren Roushie, it is a pejorative name for a nairae-mindit philistine. Meschansky Destrict acquired its name earlier, in the seicont hauf o 17t century, throu the Ukrainians an Belaroushies abductit frae thair hametouns in the course o Russo-Pols War (1654–1667). Thir fowk settled north frae present-day Garden Ring, reachin 692 hoosehaulds bi 1682 (Sytin, p. 296). In thair leids, meshchane meant simply "toun fowk", "the locals", athoot negative connotation; the name o Meshchanskaya sloboda persists tae date.
