The Provisional All-Russian Government
was the main government centred in Omsk
during the Russian Civil War
Formed in late September 1918, the PA-RG was formed from the two main regimes of the region, the Komuch
, mainly SR
's and Kadets
, and the Provisional Siberian Government
, which consisted mainly of regional politicians and rightist officers. The two regimes had come to a point of rivalry including a customs war and numerous border disputes. A State Conference started on 8 September
and finishing on the 23 September finished with the establishment of this last attempt at a unified anti-Bolshevik
government. But it was a compromise. The Komuch gained recognition for the SR-dominated Constituent Assembly
as the eventual basis of power. The right won a three-month stay of execution, until January 1919. Although the Komuch lost its claim to be the legal All-Russian government, in its place as the embodiment of the new government was a five-man Directory.
The Directory consisted of 2 SRs, Nikolai Avksentiev
and Zenzinov; the other Directors were Vologodsky, a regional politician and head of the Omsk Provisional Siberian Government, General A.G. Boldyrev and the left Kadet Vinogradov.
