Almost the first thing I came across was
This is "Polish cemetery of specposelok Ezhma" (in Russian Ёжма, an exile settlement in the Arkhangelsk province, Pinezhsky raion)
The Google translation (slightly tidied up) of the 1st paragraph reads:
Polish cemetery special settlements Ezhma (Pinezhsky rn Arkhangelsk Region.) is 300 meters to the north-east of the former special settlements Ezhma formed in 1930, kulaks of Saratov, Volgograd and other regions. In March 1940 in Ezhme were placed Polish citizens (63 families, 279 persons), expelled from the territory of the western regions of Ukraine and Belarus (osadniki). The exact number of those buried here interned Polish citizens is not known; compiled a list of names of 15 people who died in 1940-1942. In 2008, there were nine crosses standing and fragments of approx. 20 crosses. At the four crosses survived barely readable inscription.
