The Origins and Development of Russian Compatriot Policies

(p.57) Chapter Three The Origins and Development of Russian Compatriot Policies
Beyond Crimea

Agnia Grigas

Yale University Press

This chapter examines Moscow’s policies and legal framework regarding its diaspora from the 1990s to 2015, demonstrating how over time ethnic Russians, Russian speakers, and other minorities abroad have been politically conceptualized as “compatriots.” The chapter also traces the development of Moscow’s policies in the 2000s from perceiving compatriots as a problem to seeing them as a potential resource to be employed for Russia’s geopolitical aspirations. Stalin’s ethnic policies that created the present-day conditions of the Russian diaspora and ethnically mixed states as well as the origins of the term “compatriot” are reviewed.

Keywords:   Compatriots, Humanitarian policies, Russian diaspora, Soviet Republics, Russian minorities
