Surely there were volunteers of this ethnic groups, framed in the Azerbaijani Legion or in the other legions of the East.

Sorry,it's trolling.There is no such nation as "Tuvas" :shock: .There are people of Tuva (Tuvinians) and inhabit these Tuva (it's the Mongoloid Turkic-speaking herders-Christians) in Siberia,but not Azerbaijan.As for the Lezgins (also Lezgians it's native North Caucasian people of Caucasian-Caspian/Hyrcanian region),they had no need to serve in some mythical "Azeri SS", because in the German armed forces were the North Caucasian Legion (Legion Nordkaukasien), Mountain Caucasian Legion (Legion Bergkaukasien),special Forces of "Bergmann" (Sonderverband Bergmann) and a Special Unit of Shamil (Sonderkommando Schamil).At the end of the war many of them were in the so-called Caucasian Units of the SS,they wewala on the outskirts of Berlin (Seelow heights) and in Berlin.

There may well be some trolling but I don't think it was the OP.

So who claimed there was?
... they had no need to serve in some mythical "Azeri SS",
Are you saying there were no SS units with a large percentage of Azeris?
If not then your use of the term "mythical" is in error.
