15 However, the potential for conflict between Ukrainian and Russian elites remains. 4 million Russians, however, is derived from Soviet census questions which rely on self-identification of nationality. One school of thought holds that this is a considerable underestimate, because many nominal Ukrainians are in fact acculturated to a Russian identity and/or are Russian-speaking. 19 In the Baltic states, Latvia and Estonia especially, the Russian presence is mainly a result of the postwar factory construction and relatively high standard of living that drew large numbers of Russian immigrants into the domestic working class.

The media, cultural and educational circles were purged of nationally conscious elites, and national communist elements were removed from the CPU. In the words of one author: Thanks to Shcherbytskyi and his associates, Moscow succeeded in cultivating a following of loyal ‘Little Russians’ in Ukraine, who were willing to subordinate the republic’s interests to those of the centre. 4 Some of the key changes within the CPU that supposedly encouraged the growth of national communism can be traced back to the Eighteenth Congress of the CPU in 1954, and the rule of Shelest’s two predecessors, Oleksii Kyrychenko (June 1953–December 1957) and Mykola Pidhornyi (December 1957–June 1963).

34 A long campaign for rehabilitation resulted in the partial restoration of civil rights in 1967, but the Tatars have only been able to return after a USSR Supreme Soviet investigation in 1989. 36 Other minorities include the Belarusians. 37 Hence, they and other highly Russified minorities are often regarded as effectively an addition to the Russian minority in Ukraine. As a result of late eighteen-century immigration, 240 000 Bulgarians remain in Ukraine, 170 000 of whom live in southern Bessarabia as a compact and largely rural community around the town of Bolhrad.
