A Russian ultranationalist legislator called for the restoration of the Pale of Settlement. Retired Gen. Albert Makashov, known for his anti-Semitic remarks, made the statement about the swath of land where Jews were required to live in late-czarist Russia at a session of the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament. The remark by Makashov, a deputy from the Communist Party, was ignored.
