The Soviets used "nationality" in the sense that we would say "ethnicity." They used "Jewish" as a "nationality."

This produces some rather strange (to us) paperwork-- when say a Moscow-born "Ukrainian" (who spoke only Russian) is classified differently by differnet people on different pieces of paper.
