Comrades, let us reach for some other facts. The Soviet Union is justly considered as a model of a multinational state because we have in practice assured the equality and friendship of all nations which live in our great fatherland.
All the more monstrous are the acts whose initiator was Stalin and which are rude violations of the basic Leninist principles of the nationality policy of the Soviet state. We refer to the mass deportations from their native places of whole nations, together with all Communists and Komsomols without any exception; this deportation action was not dictated by any military considerations.
Thus, already at the end of 1943, when there occurred a permanent breakthrough at the fronts of the Great Fatherland War benefiting the Soviet Union, a decision was taken and executed concerning the deportation of all the Karachay from the lands on which they lived.
In the same period, at the end of December 1943, the same lot befell the whole population of the Autonomous Kalmyk Republic. In March 1944, all the Chechen and Ingush peoples were deported and the Chechen–Ingush Autonomous Republic was liquidated. In April 1944, all Balkars were deported to faraway places from the territory of the Kabardino-Balkar Autonomous Republic and the Republic itself was renamed the Autonomous Kabardian Republic.
The Ukrainians avoided meeting this fate only because there were too many of them and there was no place to which to deport them. Otherwise,
he would have deported them also.
