  • The Soviet troops responsible for deporting the population of Khaibakh village in Chechnya in southern Russia could not complete their assignment due to a heavy snowstorm. Instead, Colonel Mikheil Gveshiani of the NKVD ordered the troops to force the entire population of 700 into a large stable, lock the doors, and set the stable on fire. ww2dbase [Deportation of Caucasian, Altaic, and Turkish Peoples | Khaibakh, Chechen-Ingush | CPC]
