Abstract : The inclusion of the three nationalities named does not imply that these nationalities are alike. Rather, they are included here since they did not fit in any of the other groupings. The Moldavians, though they have a Union Republic of their own, do not belong to any 'group' in the USSR. The Tatars and the Jews were selected from among the many non-union nationalities: the Tatars because they are a well-known and rather important ethnic group in the heartland of the European RSFSR; the Jews because of the importance and topicality of their case. The Tatars have an Autonomous Republic but also a large dispersed population in the USSR. Officially, the Jews have an autonomous province in Birobidzhan, but in reality they are a dispersed people, of whom only a tiny minority live in this 'Jewish province.'
