This finding aid has been prepared for 4,157 microfilm reels of Fond R-393. It contains 21,816 files of documents relating to the activities of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic,1919-1931
The People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs of the RSFSR (RSFSR NKVD) was established, among thirteen people's commissariats of the first Soviet government Council of People's Commissars (Sovnarkom), at the Second All-Russian Congress of Soviets, which took place in Petrograd on October 25-26 (November 7-8), 1917. For the first nine days the Commissariat was headed by A. Rykov, then, upon V. Lenin's proposal, G. Petrovskiĭ was appointed as people's commissar. The first NKVD collegium included F. Dzerzhinskiĭ, M. Uritskiĭ, I. Unshlikht, and M. Latsis-Sudrabs. A little later I. Pravdin, A. Smirnov, and S. Dukhovskiĭ joined the Collegium. These people organized the central apparatus of the RSFSR NKVD. Organizational work continued through the middle of 1918. By June 1918 the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs consisted of the following subdivisions: the Chancellery (later the Secretariat), consisting in its turn of three subdepartments and the retirement and economic divisions; the Department of Local Economy; the Department of Local Administration including the Militia Subdepartment; the Department of Compulsory Military Service; the Refugee Department; the Department of Health Care with Epidemic-Sanitary, Pharmaceutical, Health Care, and Statistics Subdepartments; the Finance, Veterinary, and Foreign Departments; the Press Bureau; and the Central Statistical Committee. On June 1, 1918, the Commission for Control and Revision was established within the RSFSR NKVD. Thus the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs operated as a multifunctional organization tightly connected to the internal life of the whole state. Later the responsibilities of the RSFSR NKVD would become narrower. The most important task of the RSFSR NKVD was the creation of local Soviets in guberniias and uezds. This task was managed by the Department of Local Administration. It developed and published various legislative and legal instruments, supervised the establishment of Soviets, and helped to organize their activities by sending to their localities instructors with discretionary power.
One of the most important responsibilities of the NKVD became the maintenance of public order. For that purpose a special division -- the Militia Directorate -- was created in the NKVD in August 1918 (from October 1918 on called the Main Militia Directorate). In February 1919, the Department of Railway Militia, and in April 1919, the Department of Waterway Militia were established within the Main Militia Directorate.
In April 1919 the Central Directorate for Forced Labor Camps, created in the fall of 1918 by the VChK, was transferred to the NKVD. After the RSFSR Sovnarkom transferred authority over all places of confinement to the NKVD system, in October 1922 the Main Directorate for Places of Confinement (GUMZ) was established within the NKVD. On July 12, 1920, the RSFSR Sovnarkom issued the Resolution On Concentration of Firefighting in the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs, thus adding the Central Firefighting Department to the NKVD structure.
In 1919 internal security troops were transferred to the authority of the NKVD. In October 1919 the Revvoensovet established the Military Council of Internal Security Troops headed by F. Dzerzhinskiĭ, who became People's Commissar of Internal Affairs on March 30, 1919. The system of institutions of internal affairs was finalized by the May 1922 Regulations for the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs of the RSFSR, which defined the structure of the Commissariat and the institutions of internal affairs as a whole, as well as their rights and responsibilities. By these regulations the RSFSR NKVD consisted of the Organizational Administrative Directorate, the Main Militia Directorate, the Main Directorate of Forced Labor (from October 1922 on called the Main Directorate of Places of Confinement), the Main Directorate for Population Evacuation, and the Main Directorate of Municipal Economy and the Administration of Affairs. From the beginning of 1922 to the end of 1923 the NKVD was also responsible for state security, and it included the State Political Directorate (GPU), successor of the VChK. In 1923 the United State Political Directorate (OGPU) was established under the SSSR Sovnarkom, and the RSFSR NKVD was relieved of this responsibility. In 1922 the Central Directorate for Evacuation was abolished.
A resolution of the RKP(b) XI Congress On Financial Policy required that some institutions of the government be financed from local budgets. From 1923 the Militia and Criminal Investigation Departments were financed from local budgets. At the same time the Main Militia Directorate of the RSFSR NKVD was abolished, and the Central Administrative Directorate (TsAU) was created instead. From the fall of 1924 the RSFSR NKVD was no longer responsible for confirment or renunciation of nationality. In March 1927 new regulations for the RSFSR NKVD were adopted, and from that time on the RSFSR NKVD consisted of the General Administration, the Central Administrative Directorate, the Main Directorate for Places of Confinement, and the Main Directorate for Municipal Economy.
After the adoption of the USSR Constitution (1924), management of internal affairs was transferred to the authority of the union republics exclusively. People's commissariats of internal affairs were republican institutions and reported to the councils of people's commissars of the union republics. However, on the territory of a federal state many tasks relating to the maintenance of the social order of the whole state had to be achieved by the coordinated efforts of all the institutions of internal affairs. The primary institution for cooperation of the NKVD institutions of the union republics was the All-Union Conference of People's Commissars of Internal Affairs. At these conferences the commissars shared their experience in securing social order. Based on such cooperation, the foundation for a unified all-union system of internal affairs was created.
In the late 1920s establishment of a governing administrative command system started expanding. In the early 1930s a reform of the administrative-political system was conducted, pushing centralization of the system even further.
In December 1930 people's commissariats of the union republics were abolished. A mass campaign discrediting them preceded the abolition of the commissariats with the aim of transferring some divisions of the NKVD, such as the militia, criminal investigation, and places of confinement, to the authority of the OGPU. The People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs of the RSFSR was abolished on December 15, 1930. F. Dzerzhinskiĭ (from March 1919 through August 1923), A. Beloborodov (from August 1923 through November 1927), and V. Tolmachev (from January 1928 through December 1930) headed the RSFSR NKVD.
Documents of the RSFSR NKVD contain extensive data about the establishment and operation of the Soviet penal system from 1917 through 1930. The repressive policy of the young Soviet state is shown in the correspondence of the RSFSR NKVD with VChK, people's commissariats, and local Soviets in guberniias and uezds, in discussions regarding the political situation in various locations; measures for fighting counterrevolution, sabotage, and subversive activities; food appropriation and operations of food procurement teams; food and draft animal conscription; firing former officers of the White Army and military officials from Soviet enterprises; eviction of landowners from their mansions; confiscation of private property; contributions and taxes imposed on private businesses; and extraordinary and special taxes imposed on disfranchised individuals. Clarifications sent to local RSFSR NKVD offices concerning these subjects are contained in circulars and instructions from the Central Administrative Directorate of the NKVD.
Repression of the Russian Orthodox Church and other religious denominations promoted by the RSFSR NKVD is the topic of another important group of documents in this fond. The materials of the Subdepartment of Administrative Supervision of the Administrative Department contain many documents on wrecked and closed churches and mosques, confiscation of church property and assets, and transfer of religious items to museums. The correspondence of this subdepartment with local Soviets shows that a special permit from the authorities was demanded for religious ceremonies and that religious adherents were subject to mandatory registration. Data on registration of religious adherents arranged by guberniia can be found among the documents of the Statistics Bureau of the Administration of Affairs.
Comprehensive information relating to the early period of the Soviet penal system is contained in the materials of the Main Directorate of Forced Labor of the RSFSR NKVD (total of 335 files for the years from 1918 through 1925). The documents include copies of decrees, resolutions, instructions, and other governing materials issued by higher and central institutions in regard to the organization and operation of forced labor camps and other places of confinement; orders of the Main Directorate of Forced Labor; and reports of the Directorate chiefs about their activities. The day to day work of the Main Administration is reflected in correspondence with VChK executive committees in guberniias, extraordinary commissions, and camp commandants relating to the activities of camps and other places of confinement, assignment of prisoners to work, and clothing and food supplies for inmates. Detailed information about the situation in and operation of forced labor and concentration camps can be found in groups of documents delivered from the camps: camp orders, reports of subdepartments of forced labor in guberniias and of camp chiefs and commandants, and lists of concentration camp inmates. A comparison of inspection materials with reports from the same camps allows one to explore the credibility of the data reported by local authorities. Separate groups of records, fewer in number, contain statements and data about the economy of forced labor colonies, records of the work done in the places of confinement, and data about educational and instructional work among inmates.
Among the documents of the Main Militia Directorate the most important place belongs to reports and other messages and data from militia departments in republics, krais, oblasts, and guberniias relating to the struggle against bandits, suppression of the Kronshtadt uprising and other anti-Soviet actions, and to purges in the militia apparatus. The correspondence of the Main Militia Directorate with the OGPU people's commissariats of the RSFSR, executive committees in oblasts and guberniias, and militia and criminal investigation directorates in oblasts and guberniias contain data about the exile and placement of various individuals in concentration camps, about search and arrest warrants issued for use by the militia, about maintenance of detention houses, and about guards for inmates.
Documents of the Main (Central) Directorate of Criminal Investigation contain reports, accounts, statements, messages, and registers relating to the investigation of crimes, political and criminal in nature, lists of individuals subject to search and arrest, and catalog cards for individuals taken into custody by criminal investigation institutions. A considerable number of files contain lists of individuals registered by fingerprints by local departments of criminal investigation.
The materials of the Department of Statistics consist of statistical reports about the activities of the distribution and surveillance commission of the inspection of places of confinement in guberniias, about expenses incurred by places of confinement (arranged by guberniia and oblast), about the composition of inmates arranged by place of confinement in the Moskovskaia guberniia (1925), and about the participation of inmates in agricultural work. Documents of the Finance Department include estimates of expenses and income of the Main Directorate of Places of Confinement of the RSFSR NKVD, balances of special appropriations of the Main Directorate of Places of Confinement, correspondence with people's commissariats of the RSFSR and local executive committees about money appropriated for maintenance of places of confinement, estimate expenditure sheets and financial accounts of correctional labor places, detention houses and facilities, and inspections of places of confinement, comparison data of penal appropriations for correctional-labor units in guberniias and uezds, and lists of places of confinement subject to federal financing.
For the Hoover microfilming project 21,816 files out of 34,948 file, i.e. approximately two thirds of the fond, were microfilmed. Documents relating to the NKVD personnel and institutions subordinate to NKVD were not microfilmed. Of the microfilmed files, 3,370 had not been available for researchers anywhere, even in Russia, until 1992 (opisi 1A, 18A, 23A, 43A, and 91).
