This article is part of a series on the Russification of Southern Siberia.
The Uneri (Tuvan: üneri 'exit') refers to the mass exodus of Tuvans from Tuva. During the 1950s, nearly 100,000 Tuvans (almost the entire Tuvan population of Tuva) were forced out of Russia. Most of these Tuvan refugees fled to the United States, where the largest population of Tuvans is now found.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, many Tuvans have returned to the Tuva Republic in Russia, where they now make up approximately 20% of the population.
