The first part of the article provides some basic historical and socio-demographic characteristics of Poles and people of Polish descent in this region.

The final section examines the situation of Poles in the newly independent post-Soviet states. Moreover, the author looks at the issue of ties between Poles and their motherland, particularly in the context of migration/repatriation to Poland.
