When halting the repatriation, the Soviet leadership didn’t take into account the fact that thousands of Armenian families overseas, after selling their belongings and leaving their jobs, found themselves in a precarious position. Nevertheless, from 1946-1949 some 90,000 Armenians relocated to Soviet Armenia. They integrated into the economic and social-political life of the republic; albeit with difficulty. They became full citizens of the soviet country, made great contributions to the Armenia’s industrial sector, and to the development of Soviet Armenian culture and science. While the post-war repatriation of Armenians was the largest such occurrence, it remains poorly researched. One can even say that the Great Repatriation of 1946-1949 has remained outside the field of vision of Soviet historiography. In modern Russian historiography, Armenian population movements are also studied rarely. Furthermore, the post-war repatriation and the 1949 exile are regarded as two distinct subjects.
