I think the original name is better, just personally. Variants never do it for me.

Afanasiy Prokopievich Shchapov (Àôàíàñèé Ïðîêîôüåâè÷ Ùàïîâ in Russian) was a Russian historian accused of "Siberian nationalism" and persecuted by tsarist authorities.

The name probably has no such connotation in Russian, but when I see it spelled, I think "a fantasy" (as if you added a T in the name, that's what you'd have).
