Historical Map of Russia and the former Soviet Union

On the night of April 4-5, Japanese retaliated for the Nikolayevsk Incident by assaulting Russian partisan positions in the Far East and installing a new government in Vladivostok. In response, the Russians declared a Far Eastern Republic at Verkhneudinsk. Nominally an independent state, it served as a buffer between Japan and Russia over the next few years.
