The history of the USSR under the period of the Stalin regime today is connected first of all with the anti-lawful acts of mass repressions. Historians and politologists apply to these acts of lawlessness that brought about a guiltless condemnation and the destruction of millions of peoples. From the viewpoint of the ethnographic science a special attention should be given to the existing-in-those-years policy of compulsoy migration that resulted in the fact that entire peoples, ethnic and ethographic groups were moved by force off the historical places of their dwelling to other regions of the country.
