Stalin and Beria treated the Meskheti Turks cruelly. In 1944 they were deprived of their homeland and deported from Georgia (Meskhetia and Dzhavakhatia) to Central Asia and Kazakhstan. In 1989 they were again forced to find a new refuge following interethnic disturbances, and around 70,000 of them migrated to the Moscow, Krasnodar, Stavropol and Rostov Regions.
