The Provisional All-Russian Government (Временное Всероссийское правительство) was a unified front of the White Army in Russia. It was their interim government, meant to be a provisional state until the end of the Russian Civil War. The government was based in the southern city of Tsaritsyn and controlled much of Russian territories. When the war ended, it was reformed into the Russian Democratic Republic.
The Conference of Tsaritsyn was a meeting of several hundred influential White Russians, along with their advisers and other supporters, in January 1918, during the Russian Civil War. After several days of negotiations and discussions, they published the Tsaritsyn Manifesto, a document detailing the views and goals of the White movement. It announced that the White forces were unified under the Provisional All-Russian Government, and united all White military forces under the Russian National Army. The conference also resulted in the planning of creating the new Russian government after the war. The Russian Civil War (Гражданская война в России, Grazhdanskaya voyna v Rossii; November 1917 — October 1921) was a conflict that engulfed the former territories of the Russian Empire following the Russian Revolutions of 1917. Lasting from November 1917 to October 1921, the conflict saw the defeat of the Bolsheviks, resulting in the purges of Communists and the establishment of the Russian Democratic Republic.
The provisional government was led by the chairman and deputy chairman of the Provisional Duma, which itself had 165 members. The chairman was, throughout the government's existence, Alexander Kerensky, the former minister-chairman of the interim Russian Republic of 1917.
