On the Rehabilitation of Repressed Peoples (Russian: Закон РСФСР от 26 апреля 1991 г. N 1107-I "О реабилитации репрессированных народов") is the law N 1107-I of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic signed on April 29, 1991[1] and updated by the July 1, 1993 law N 5303-I of Russian Federation.[2]

The law was preceded by the Declaration of the USSR Supreme Soviet of November 14, 1989 "On the recognition as unlawful an criminal of repressive measures against peoples subjected to forced deportation and on the guaranteeing of their rights".[3]

The 1991 law had various deficiencies. [4]

After the annexation of Crimea by Russia, on April 21, 2014 Vladimir Putin signed the decree No 268 "О мерах по реабилитации армянского, болгарского, греческого, крымско-татарского и немецкого народов и государственной поддержке их возрождения и развития". ("On the Measures for the Rehabilitation of Armenian, Bulgarian, Greek, Crimean Tatar and German Peoples and the State Support of Their Revival and Development"), [5] amended by Decree no. 458 of September 12, 2015.[6] The decree addressed the status of the mentioned peoples which resided in Crimean ASSR and were deported from there. They were not covered by the 1991/1993 law, because Crimea was not part of the Russian Federation.
