In the winter and spring of 1943-1944, the Stalin regime deported the Karchais, Kalmyks, Chechens, Ingush, Balkars, and Crimean Tatars from their homelands to remote areas of the USSR. In total almost 900,000 people. A number of these people including the Crimean Tatars speak languages related to Turkish. Above is an expansive list and depiction of flags of various Turkic peoples of the world including Azerbaijanis, Turkmen, Bashkirs, Uzbeks, Kyrgyz, Kazakhs, Chuvash, Karakalpaks, Uighers, Yakuts, and Tuvans.
