1944 Deportation Victim: ‘I Will Never Forgive Russia’


Ali Aliyev was 14 years old when he and his family were forcibly put on a cattle train and moved out of Crimea. On May 18, 1944, the Soviet government deported more than 230,000 Crimean Tatars from their homeland as a form of collective punishment for alleged collaboration with the Nazis. Seventy years later, Aliyev recounts the horrors of deportation. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
