Abstract

The article shows that the legal field of Russian emigrants, who did not take either Soviet citizenship or the citizenship of the recipient country, has evolved from “torn apart”, fragmented across countries and various institutions to a relatively unified, harmonized, based on international documents initiated by the League of Nations. If in the early 1920s the protection of the interests of emigrants, their legal adaptation depended on self-organization, and the authorities of the receiving state played a decisive role, then by the end of the decade a supranational legal sector is being built, more or less uniform for the entire diaspora. Despite unsuccessful attempts to preserve a non-Soviet civil identity, the former Russian passports, Russia Abroad was able to organize legal assistance and support, to offer its own options for resolving the status of Russians who were left without the protection of their state.
