This list of Soviet 'achievements' could go on and on. Stalin's criminal deportation of the Chechens, the Ingushi, the Balkars, the Karachaevs and the Kalmyks has led to a host of ethnic problems that Russia is grappling with today. Yet the deportation harmed not only those deported but also their ethnic neighbours: at present, they are the hostages of what happened half a century or more ago. As long as the USSR, extolled by Communist ideologues as a conflict-free society, used the might of its repressive machine to contain inter-ethnic contradictions, conflicts mostly developed in latent forms.

In the 24 Liudmila Gatagova course of lengthy coexistence, the ethnic group gradually stores, at the genetic level of its consciousness, a certain impression of its neighbour. Any projection of isolated negative events on an entire ethnic group, any generalisations which become habitual, subsequently distort one ethnic group's view of its neighbour. Well-established stereotypes of this kind are very hard to overcome, yet such an effort is essential because they constitute fertile ground for all sorts of phobias which, at critical junctures, provoke ethnic conflicts.
