    Slavs are indeed defined as speakers of Slavic languages. The problem with your question is that the people you mention are not Slavs. You can read more here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavs

    1. They aren't Slavic. Slavic is not a race. It's a cultural identity.

    2. Genetics can group people roughly into Western European (Germans, Norwegians, etc) and Eastern European (Slavs, etc), among many other groups. But there is no necessary connection between a person's genetics and the languages he/she speaks.

    3. Many people are mixture of different genetic groupings. Relatively few people are purely just one.

    Your premise is wrong.

      @poiuytrewa - NO. That's what I just pointed out. You're believing what you want to believe.

      Present-day Slavic people are classified into East Slavs (Belarusians, Russians, Rusyns, and Ukrainians), West Slavs (chiefly Czechs, Kashubs, Moravians, Poles, Silesians, Slovaks and Sorbs), and South Slavs (chiefly Bosniaks, Bulgarians, Croats, Macedonians, Montenegrins, Serbs and Slovenes).
