The State Archive of the Russian Federation (GARF) (Russian: Государственный архив Российской Федерации (ГАРФ)) is a large Russian state archive managed by Rosarkhiv (the Federal Archival Agency of Russia). It preserves:

  • some official documents relating to the history of the Russian Empire (mostly concerning the activity of police)
  • personal records (including archives of some members of the imperial Romanov from the early 19th century to 1918)
  • official documents of the supreme national legislative and executive institutions of the Russian Provisional Government (1917)
  • records of Soviet Russia as an independent state (1917-1922) and as a territorial entity of the USSR (1923-1991)
  • archives of the Soviet Union (1922-1991)
  • records of the Russian Federation (since 1992)
  • documents from many other sources

The State Archive, established in Moscow in 1992, acquired the collections of:

  • the Central State Archive of the October Revolution (Russian: Центральный государственный архив Октябрьской революции, высших органов государственной власти и органов государственного управления (ЦГАОР СССР)) (founded in 1920)[1]
  • the Central State Archive of the Russian SFSR (Russian: Центральный государственный архив РСФСР (ЦГА РСФСР)) (founded in 1957).[2]
