We consider ind-varieties obtained as direct limits of chains of embeddings $X_1 \overset{\varphi_1}{\hookrightarrow} \dots \overset{\varphi_{m - 1}}{\hookrightarrow}X_m \overset{\varphi_m}{\hookrightarrow} X_{m+1} \overset{\varphi_{m + 1}}{\hookrightarrow} \dots$, where each $X_m$ is a grassmannian or an isotropic grassmannian (possibly mixing grassmannians and isotropic grassmannians), and the embeddings $\varphi_m$ are linear in the sense that they induce isomorphisms of Picard groups. We prove that any such ind-variety is isomorphic to one of certain standard ind-grassmannians and that the latter are pairwise non-isomorphic ind-varieties.
