The General Government of Galicia and Bukovina (Russian: Галицийское генерал-губернаторство) was a temporary Imperial Russian military administration of eastern parts of the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria captured from Austria-Hungary during World War I.
The administration was established after the Russian victory in the Battle of Galicia, led by the commander-in-chief Nikolay Iudovich Ivanov in the late summer of 1914. It did not last long and by mid-1915 Russians retreated, following the Gorlice–Tarnów Offensive led by the Central Powers overall commander August von Mackensen. During the later stages of the war, the Russian forces tried to reclaim the territory during the military operations of Brusilov and Kerensky.
