Pro-independence movements in the Russian Civil War
Pro-independence movements in the Russian Civil War within the territory of the former Russian Empire sought for creation of independent and non-Bolshevik nation states after the October Revolution. They were often supported politically or militarily by the Entente Powers. Some of them cooperated with the Russian White movement, others were opposed to it. Many pro-independence movements emerged after the break-up of the Russian Empire and fought in the war.
