On anniversary of restoration of Chechen-Ingush ASSR, residents of Chechnya remember Stalin's deportation

Today, Chechnya marks the 60th anniversary of the restoration of the Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (ASSR), abolished after the deportation of Chechen and Ingush people in 1944. On the occasion of the anniversary, the authorities dated solemn assemblies. Local residents pay tribute to the memory of victims of Stalin's deportation.

Chechen and Ingush were expelled en masse from the territory of the Chechen-Ingush ASSR to Kazakhstan and Central Asia during the operation "Lentils", which was started on February 23, 1944. In 1957, the Chechen-Ingush ASSR was restored, and Chechen and Ingush names were returned to most areas.

The Chechen authorities call the 60th anniversary of the restoration of the Chechen-Ingush ASSR a significant date.

According to residents of Chechnya, unlike the date of February 23, the deportation of Chechen and Ingush people, the date of the restoration of the Chechen-Ingush ASSR is hardly known to all the residents of the region.
