Northern Oblast (1918–20)
Northern Oblast (Russian: Се́верная о́бласть) was a territory in the northwest of Russia controlled by the White movement during the Russian Civil War. Its administrative center was Arkhangelsk.
The oblast was established on August 2, 1918 after the Soviet power fell in Arkhangelsk Governorate. On August 6, 1918, the Murmansk Krai Soviet authorized Chairman Yuryev to agree on the inclusion of Murmansk Krai into Northern Oblast. On September 15, 1918, the Provisional Government issued a resolution which accepted Murmansk Krai as a part of Northern Oblast. In October 1918, all the soviets were abolished and zemstvos were restored.
