History of Kazakhstan Kirghiz ASSR

Alash Orda, 1917-1920

In April 1917, the first Pan-Kirgiz Congress was held at Orenburg. During the Russian Civil War, a Kazakh provisional government was formed by the Alash Orda Party, headed by Alikhan Bokeikhanov. It was supported by the Semirechye Cossack Host and supported the Whites in the Russian Civil War.
Following the Bolzhevik victory in 1920, Kazakh/Kirgiz resistance against the Red Army was given up; the Kirghiz Autonomous Socialist Soviet Republic was established, comprising of modern Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan (the southern borders being somewhat different from the modern borders). The capital was Orenburg. The Semirechye Cossack Host, at home in the region of Alma ta and adjacent Kyrgyzstan was disbanded in 1920.
