Vasily Z. Tsvetkov, Elena A. Tsvetkova
Full text:
The article is devoted to the issues of the regional markets in the ‘White’ South of Russia during the final period of the Civil War (spring-autumn 1920) which is associated with the activities of the commanding general of the anti-Bolshevik White Army in Southern Russia Pyotr Wrangel. The territorial scope of the article covers the Taurida Governorate (the Crimea and Northern Taurida). The dynamics of prices for basic agricultural products, their correlation with the prices for manufactured goods, as well as changes in demand and supply are analysed. The given statistical data are introduced into the scientific discourse for the first time. The influence is shown with regards to the changes in the situation at the front of the White Army, on the dynamics of the local market prices. The regional features of the agricultural situation in the White Crimea and the North-ern Taurida in 1920 are considered.
