On April 13, 1944, the USSR armed forces gained superiority over the military units of Fascist Germany and pulled them out of the Crimean Peninsula.

On May 10, 1944, Lavrenti Beria officially proposed to Stalin that to exile the Crimean Tatars to the border regions to the internal parts of the alliance - Central Asia blaming them as a “traitor” for fighting against USSR on the German side to fight the USSR.
