The Kodiak Accords were a series of agreements signed the Alaskan government in November of 1927 to end their direct involvement in the Pacific War. The Accords, which came on the heels of Alaska's devastating naval losses over the course of three weeks in September and early October, agreed to end Alaskan naval activity in the Chishimas, reparation payments to Japan in the form of hard money as well as oil rights, an established zone of neutrality in the Aleutians until hostilities between the Asian Powers and Allied Powers ended, Japanese right-of-passage in the Bering Sea, a withdrawal of Alaskan soldiers from Karafuto and eastern Siberia, and an agreed-upon ceasefire, though not an official state of peace, between Alaska and the Empire of Japan.
The Japanese initially hoped for territorial concessions in Asia, but Alaska's agreement to cease pursuing territorial claims to the Chishima Islands abated that Japanese concern. The Japanese largely dictated the terms of the agreement to their favor, but the Alaskans, represented mainly by future Premier Sergei Kolov, managed to negotiate for themselves a ceasefire with solely Japan, which allowed them to continue to remain part of the war effort and continue to supply the Allies with troops, supplies and most importantly oil. Alaskan soldiers thus continued fighting on the Asian front well into 1929, despite the "official" withdrawal from the conflict. However, Tsar Nicholas I was furious at the skewed terms of the deal and sacked his Premier, Dmitri Tomegin, only days after the Accords were signed, although the presence of Japanese gunships in the Gulf of Alaska dissuaded him from reneging on the terms of the peace agreements.
