  Population transfer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Population transfer is a term referring to a policy by which a state, or international authority, forces the movement of a large group of people out of a region, most frequently on the basis of their ethnicity or religion.
Population transfer differs more than simply technically from individually-motivated migration, though at times of war, the act of fleeing from danger or famine often blurs the differences.
Two famous transfers connected with the history of France are the expulsion of the Muslims in the 13th century, and of the Huguenots who were declared illegal by the Edict of Fontainebleau, 1685.

 MSN Encarta - Union of Soviet Socialist Republics
Article 36 of the Soviet constitution of 1977 enshrined citizens’ right to use their mother tongues “and the languages of the other peoples of the USSR.” In fact, the Russian language was advantaged, though not to the exclusion of others.
The Soviet Union had no official state language, but Russian was the preferred language of government and economics, the sole language of military command, and the medium of communication within the CPSU.
The Soviet Union screened schoolchildren to find talented athletes at an early age, sometimes as young as five or six; those selected for competitive sports were sometimes sent to special schools for that purpose.

 GI -- World War II Commemoration
In July 1940, the apparent stalemate in the war with Britain brought the Soviet Union to the forefront of his strategic thinking as an inviting target in itself, as the last obstacle to German hegemony on the Continent, and as the lever with which to bring Britain to terms.
In the first phase the German Army was to engage the Soviet main force as close to the western border of the Soviet Union as possible, cut it up by encircling movements, and destroy it and so prevent the Russians from fighting a delaying action across the vast spaces of their country.
On November 22, the Soviet spearheads met at Kalach on the Don River, and the Sixth Army and approximately half of the German and Romanian troops of the Fourth Panzer Army (250,000 to 300,000 men in all) were encircled.

 Soviet Union (former) TECHNOLOGY AND INFORMATION TRANSFER - Flags, Maps, Economy, History, Climate, Natural Resources, ...
By the early 1980s, technology transfers from the United States to the Soviet Union were curtailed severely in response to political, economic, and military concerns.
Soviet scientists have had easy access to Western and Japanese publications, and for years they have relied heavily on this literature as a primary source of foreign technology.
Some critics argued that technology transfers allowed the Soviet Union to save millions of rubles (for value of the ruble--see Glossary) in research and development costs and years of development time.

 ZNet Commentary
Yes, I was "very glad" the Soviet government was overthrown, and at the point where Gorbachev was in power, and "glasnost" and "perestroika" appeared to have a certain future, I saw the possibility of a socialist but democratic Soviet Union that would retain the social programs without the cruelties of the police state.
You attribute to the existence of the Soviet Union "the progress of unionization and social reform all over the world" and "the liberation struggles of oppressed peoples" who took "courage and inspiration and critical material support from the Soviet Union." I don't credit the Soviet Union with that.
The Soviet Union seems to have given material support when it was in its national interest and other times withheld it (the aid to Spain, for instance, is not clear-cut; the aid to the Greece rebels after World War II was not there -- it seems Yugoslavia gave them real aid).

 Women in the Soviet Union
The vast shortage of men in the Soviet Union arising from the first world war and the civil war years was compounded by the second world war, leaving only 59 men between the ages of 35-59 for every 100 women.
The issue of women's wages in the Soviet Union is assuming more and more importance, as in the West especially since by 1959 almost one third of households were headed by women.
Marxists can be confident that the demands and aspirations of women workers in the Soviet Union will not be to turn the clock back and return to the confines of the home but will be to extend their rights and conditions.

 Michael Hope - "Polish deportees in the Soviet Union".
The secret German-Soviet agreement concerning the fourth partition of Poland and Soviet aggression against Poland confirmed that the Soviet Union was unilaterally to violate the main bilateral and multilateral treaties agreed with Poland.
In the first phase of the occupation, the Soviets carried out a previously prepared plan for liquidating Poles as "enemies of the people": civil servants, judges, the police, professional army officers, factory owners, landlords, political activists, leaders of cultural, educational and religious organisations, and others activists in the community.
Beria in his report to Stalin stated that "all officers are uncompromising enemies of the Soviet Union, are anti revolutionists and should be sentenced to death".

 After the Soviet Union:   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
I hope not, and the possibility of the Soviet alternative, however tragically it played itself out, to the degree to which it offered an alternative kept alive a hope that resistance was possible; and that resistance is possible, but we need the imagination to combat the numbing conformism of mass culture today.
That there was such a powerful alternative once in Russian history is also a source of hope for Russians as they face an economy that has many of the worst features of our own capitalist culture with many of the worst features of a degenerated Soviet bureaucratic structure and set of elites.
I hope you understand a bit better why those differences remain important, because they have a history in a different period that can be understood.
