Chechen-Ingush deportation

February 23 was the 65th anniversary of Josef Stalin’s deportation of the Chechen and Ingush—accused by the Soviet dictator of collaborating with the Nazis—to Kazakhstan and elsewhere in the Soviet Union. Kavkazky Uzel reported on the day of this year's anniversary that all of Chechnya’s mosques would be marking the anniversary with religious ceremonies and prayers in memory of the victims of the 1944 deportation and that ritual sacrifices would also take place across the republic, with the meat from sacrificed animals donated to poor families.

In Ingushetia, several thousand people, including representatives of public organizations, government officials—among them Ingush President Yunus-bek Yevkurov—representatives from Chechnya and Kabardino-Balkaria, and ordinary residents of Ingushetia, gathered in the former Ingush capital, ...

Window on Eurasia: To Counter Ukraine's Charges of Genocide, Moscow Admits to Mass Murder

Paul Goble

Vienna, February 26 – In order to counter Kyiv’s insistence that Stalin carried out a genocide in Ukraine in the 1930s, an insistence that is at the core of the definition of the Ukrainian nation, Moscow has released new documents suggesting that the Soviet dictator engaged in a criminal campaign of mass murder across the entire Soviet Union.
Yesterday, Vladimir Kozlov, the head of Russia’s Federal Archives Agency, told a Moscow press conference that the famine in Ukraine and elsewhere in the USSR was “the result of [Stalin’s] criminal policy” but that “of course, no one planned any famine” or singled out any ethnic group as its victim (
Instead, he said, “the famine was the result of the errors and miscalculations of the political course of the leadership of the ...

Russia: Famine that killed millions not genocide
AP – The head of the Russian Federal State Archives agency Vladimir Kozlov holds up a book entitled, 'Famine …

MOSCOW – Russia issued a DVD and a thick book of historical documents on Wednesday to dispute claims that the Ukrainian famine of the 1930s amounted to genocide.

Russian archivists and historians pressed the Kremlin's case that the Stalin-era famine — which killed millions of people — was a common tragedy across Soviet farmlands, countering efforts by Ukraine's pro-Western president to convince the world that Ukrainians were targeted for starvation.

"Not a single document exists that even indirectly shows that the strategy and tactics chosen for Ukraine differed from those applied to other regions, not to mention tactics or strategy with the aim of ...

Window on Eurasia: Crimean Tatars Mark Yet Another Tragic Anniversary

Paul Goble

Vienna, February 23 – Yesterday, as the Chechens and Ingush recalled the 65th anniversary of their deportation by Stalin to Central Asia and the continuing relevance of that event, the Crimean Tatars marked yet another anniversary, the 91st year since the Bolshevik’s murdered the first president of independent Crimea.
On February 23, 1918, Bolshevik-led sailors from the Black Sea Fleet based in Sebastopol brutally killed Numan Celebicihan, the mufti for Crimea, Poland and Lithuania who was elected president of native Crimea less than three months earlier with a promise to transform it into a highly-civilized country in which all nationalities would live in democracy and freedom.
Crimean Tatars, whose independence was crushed by the Bolsheviks and who also suffered deportation under Stalin recall him frequently because the words of his poem, “Antetkenmen” [“I have Pledged’], ...

February 23, 2009
This is the 65th anniversary of the deportation on orders from Soviet leader Josef Stalin of the entire Chechen and Ingush population of the (subsequently abolished) Checheno-Ingush ASSR -- estimates range from 496,000 to 650,000 people -- to Kazakhstan and Central Asia on suspicion of collaboration with Nazi Germany.

Up to half of them died either on the journey -- in unheated cattle wagons -- or in the harsh conditions in which they were forced to live.

Almost exactly 12 years later, in late February 1956, Nikita Khrushchev admitted in his landmark secret speech to the 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the ...
