Like their counterparts in Western Europe, the Russian people spent much of the second millennium colonizing foreign lands and peoples, often in deliberate genocide. The Russian empire in Central and Northern Asia includes the traditional homelands of the Tatars, Yakuts, Komi, Chuvash, Buryats, Altaians, and many other indigenous peoples. Today, the ethnic Russians outnumber all of the native peoples in Siberia except in the Republic of Tuva. The Buriat make up only 25% of the population in their own land, the Sakha and Altai each are only one-third, and the Chukchi, Evenk, Khanti, Mansi, and Nenets are outnumbered by non-natives by 90%.
Where/When they expanded on Alaska?
Could you please give me an example of a genocide of indigenous population by Russians?
Hi @igoryen, and everyone who is interested on this topic. It is very difficult for post soviet people to admit a colonization facts and what happened. The territory of nomads was colonized dramatically. More over the USSR was continue this agenda under name of “decolonization” and Soviet progress modernity. For example Kazakh Famine during 1932-1933 took at least 38% of Kazakh Nomad lives. Brutally stopped nomad economic´s and push a radical agrarian system. On the empty territories build a political repression camps, the size of the territory of France, build Nuclear Test field Semipalatinski Poligon. I think is better to ask indigenous people of Russia, their opinion is important. the nations as Caucasus, Sibiria, Altai.
