“If Aysors lived in the Volga and suffered from
hunger, they would have left that place and
reached India. Because Aysors are a great
nation’’.
Shklovski
The Assyrians, uprooted from their historic home, took shelter in the territory of Russia.
There they built their new life and shared all the misfortunes of the local people, and
more.
Today, at the dawn of the 21st century, after two world wars, the socialist revolution and
the collapse of the Soviet Union, there is a big Assyrian Community living in the
different cities and regions of this huge country – Russia.
