The Northwestern Front (Северо-западный фронт) was a theater of operations during the Russian Civil War. It took place in the northeast of Russia, as well as in the Balkans. The campaigns there resulted in the capture of Petrograd from the Bolsheviks. The White forces received helped from the nearby United Baltic Duchy, commonly called Livonia (modern Latvia and Estonia). After helping Livonian troops put down Bolshevik uprisings, the forces of General Nikolai Yudenich besieged Petrograd, with the Livonians and the Finns. It was successful, and by 1920, most resistance was destroyed and the Northwest White forces converged with the troops of the other three fronts in central Russia for the final assault on Moscow.
