Civil wars shook various states. One hundred years ago, one of the bloodiest wars between compatriots broke out on the territory of the former Russian Empire, leaving an indelible mark on the historical memory of millions and, largely by virtue of this, for many years determined the fate of the regions involved in it. During the past century, the shadow of this civil war has more than once hung over the Soviet Union formed on the ruins of the Russian Empire, and after the collapse of the USSR over its fragment – the Russian Federation. In the thematic issue of the journal “Ojkumena” little-studied ethnic and cultural aspects of the Civil war of 1918–1922 will be considered on the Far Eastern material. The authors of the issue, – historians, sociologists, ethnographers, – will present their studies covering the Civil war in the Far East in a new perspective for Russian historiography.
