Abstract. The The article describes the resettlement and the problems of resettlement of Chechen migrants in the Ottoman Empire in 1865. It shows the duality of the behavior of the Turkish side and the indifference of some Russian officials to the tragic situation among migrants. From all that has been said, it follows that the Turkish government did not have a clear program of action and Russian officials did not show much enthusiasm in solving this issue. This is evidenced by the documentary sources given in the work.
