From where did the Slavs come to the territory of the former USSR and who lived there before?

It is hard to say. But in VI-VIII centuries they lived on the territory of Central and Eastern Europe. Previously, the peoples of the Finno-Ugric language group lived there. Later on they were mostly assimilated, leaving their trace in toponyms — the names of rivers, mountains, lakes, etc.
