The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk

The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk

March 3 marks the 100th anniversary of the conclusion of the Peace treaty between the RSFSR and the powers of the Quadruple Union of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk , which ended Russia's participation in the First World War. The treaty was concluded at extremely unfavorable conditions for Russia and obliged the Soviet government to make many territorial concessions. Ukraine, Privislinskie gubernias, Estland, Kurland, Livonia, Finland, Kars and Batumi regions in the Caucasus rejected from Russia. In addition, Russia was to demobilize the army and navy and pay 6 billion marks as reparations, not counting the losses suffered by Germany in the course of the Russian revolution.

The selection included transcripts of meetings of participants in peace negotiations, telegrams of the Soviet delegation to the government with a report on the negotiations, the writings of contemporaries and members of the Soviet delegation, which presented various views on the significance of the negotiations and the concluded treaty and the general analysis of the foreign policy of the RSFSR in the period under review, as well as photographs of participants in the negotiations.
