About Union of Soviet Socialist Republics

For earlier issues, see Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, and Tannu Tuva. Near the end of the post-revolutionary Civil War between the Reds and the Whites (1917 - 1923), on 28 December 1922, a conference of plenipotentiary delegations from the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (the independent state which replaced Imperial Russia), the Transcaucasian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, and the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic approved the Treaty on the Creation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), as well as the Declaration of the Creation of the USSR. These two documents were confirmed two days later by the first Congress of Soviets of the USSR and proclaimed from the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. The three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania were annexed to the USSR in 1940, along with Tannu Tuva in 1944. Unless otherwise noted, the Pick cross-references in this chapter are from the Russia chapter of the SCWPM; Krause does not treat the USSR as a separate entity.
