Tatar Republic Autonomous region in the Russian Federation populated mainly by the Tatars. Tatar nationalism has its origins in the Crimean Autonomous Socialist Republic, founded in 1921. The Republic was dissolved and the entire population deported by Stalin in 1945. After the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991, many of the 300–400,000 exiled Tatars began to return to the Crimea.
