"The republic [[USSR]] has to organize the internment in camps of about 100,000 prisoners from the Southern front and vast masses of people expelled from the rebellious [[Cossack]] settlements of the Terek, the Kuban, and the Don. Today 403 Cossack men and women aged between 14 and 17 arrived in Oryol for internment in concentration camp. They cannot be accepted as Oryol is already overloaded."
--Felix Dzerzhinsky, head of the Cheka, in a 1920 letter to Lenin on the subject of Decossackization.
