    Historical Note

    Krymskoe Kraevoe Pravitel'stvo (Crimean Regional Government) refers to two regimes in the Crimean Peninsula during the years 1918 and 1919. After the Russian October Revolution in 1917, an ethnic Tatar government proclaimed the Crimean People's Republic. The first Crimean Regional Government was established on 25 June 1918 under German protection with Lipka Tatar General Maciej (Suleyman) Sulkiewicz as prime minister and minister of interior and military affairs.
    After the withdrawal of German troops from Crimea, Sulkiewicz was succeeded by Crimean Karaite politician and former Kadet member Solomon Krym. This liberal, anti-Bolshevik regime included fellow former Kadet member Maxim Vinaver as foreign minister and Vladimir D. Nabokov as minister of justice. The collapse of the World War I Central Powers and the withdrawal of the Allies had made Crimea fully dependent on Russia again. The Crimean Regional Government began to crumble in early 1919.
    On 2 April 1919, the Soviet Red Army occupied Simferopol and the second Crimean Regional Government was dissolved. The Crimean Socialist Soviet Republic was then established only to be retaken by White forces in June 1919. The Whites, under Anton Denikin and later Petr Wrangel, held Crimea until November 1920.

    Scope and Content of Collection
