The 23rd of February marks the 70th anniversary of the deportation of the Chechens and Ingush. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty has this piece which interviews two survivors of the deportations, one of them a Red Army veteran who fought against the Nazis contrary to the Soviet libel that the Chechens committed mass treason. I have written a lot on the deportation here in previous years and don't really have much more to add. So here is a list of some of my previous posts on the subject.
Update: This BBC article with small snippets of interviews from survivors of the deportation was published in 2004 for the 60th anniversary, but is still well worth reading.
New Update: The BBC also had an article quoting survivors of the deportation for the 70th anniversary this year.
