The revolutionary events at the beginning of the last century and the following civil war didn’t let Siberia unaffected. One of the key and dramatic events of that time unfolded in Irkutsk. Those are the December battles of 1917 and 1919, the partisan war, foreign intervention, the arrest and execution of White movement’s leader A.V. Kolchak.
It is considered that the main forces of the civil war were the “Whites” and the “Reds”, but little is said about the participation of anarchists in the fight for freedom.
