Was the deportation of the Chechen and Ingush populations (carried out in 1944) covered in the media of the Allied powers?

    You should include the research you've already done to prevent others just repeating information you already know.

    @NeMo - Perhaps, but "at some point" it becomes more of an interest to historians than journalists.

    Here is a suggestion: Take a look at the book "The Moscow correspondents: reporting on Russia from the Revolution to Glasnost" by Whitman Bassow, specifically Chapter 5 about the reporting from USSR by foreign journalists during WWII (you can borrow the book for free from archive.org). You will get a pretty good idea on restrictions imposed by Soviets on their movement and on what they could report and what subjects they wanted to report about. May 19, 2022 at 20:32
