Many voices in newly independent countries called these Russians occupiers, so many migrated to Russia. Their fate proved to be tragic, as their human rights were not respected and they received little help from the government. Lidia Grafova talks about Russian migration after the collapse of the Soviet Union, her work helping migrants, and answers questions from the audience about these topics. <br/> <i>Sponsor: </i>Center for Global Studies <br/> <i>Lecture Series: </i>REEEC Distinguished Lecture Series <br/> <i>Co-sponsors: </i>Russian, East European and Eurasian Center
