"Karelians are Finns who adopted Eastern Orthodoxy. The Karelian language is primarily a Russified form of Finnish. " - http://minorityrights.org/minorities/karelians/
karelian language and culture were formed during Viking Age - so "russified form of finnish" isn't exactly right... and modern "finnish" was industrially formed in 1800s-1900s with lots of karelianism (finnish went after karelians)...

then again genetics have nothing to do with language and culture...
