Military Conflicts and the Civil War in the Far East
The exhibition tells about the events that took place in the Far East from the end of the XIX century to 1922.
The first section is devoted to the history of construction of the Chinese Eastern Railway. The exposition highlights the events of the Russo-Chinese conflict (1900-1901) and the Russo-Japanese war (1904-1905). The collection of edged weapons of China and Japan in the late 18th and early 20th centuries draws attention: Chinese axes and tridents and Japanese naginata glaive. It also displays revolutionary events (1905-1907) and participation of Far Easterners in World War I (1914-1918). There are archival documents and photos, awards, bratina and bugle with St. George ribbon.
Special attention is given to the events of the February and October revolutions of 1917 in Russia and the Far East and the Civil War of 1918-1922. The emblem of the Russian Empire, a double-headed eagle made of cast iron, which decorated the facade of the State Bank building in Khabarovsk, is of interest.
The events of the Civil War are presented in chronological order: the beginning of the Civil War, the overthrow of Soviet power (1918), the Far East under the government of Kolchak (1918-1920), the overthrow of the "white" regimes and the establishment of the Far Eastern People's Republic (1920), the end of the Civil War and military intervention (1922).
In the exhibition you can see materials about military intervention in the region and its role in the Civil War, the establishment of the Far Eastern Republic and emigration to China.
