Repatriation Of Cossacks After World War II
The REPATRIATION OF COSSACKS happened when Cossacks and ethnic Russians and Ukrainians who had collaborated with Nazi Germany were handed over to the USSR after the Second World War . The repatriations were agreed to in the Yalta Conference ; Stalin claimed the repatriated people were Soviet citizens as of 1939, although many of them had left Russia before or soon after the end of the Russian Civil War , or had been born abroad. Most of those Cossacks and Russians fought the Allies in service to the Axis powers , yet the repatriations included non-combatant civilians as well. General Poliakov and Colonel Chereshneff referred to it as the "Massacre of Cossacks at Lienz"

Émigré
An éMIGRé is a person who has emigrated, often with a connotation of political or social self-exile . The word is the past participle of the French émigrer, "to emigrate". Whereas emigrants have likely chosen to leave one place and become immigrants in a different clime, not usually expecting to return, émigrés see exile as a temporary expedient forced on them by political circumstances. Émigré circles often arouse suspicion as breeding-grounds for plots and counter-revolution. CONTENTS * 1 French Huguenots * 2 The American Revolution * 3 The French Revolution
