Urban and Rural Soviets at the Third All-Russian Congress of Workers', Soldiers' and Peasants Deputies' Soviets

Post by RedRight » 08 Sep 2019 16:08

The Third All-Russian Congress of Workers', Soldiers' and Peasants Deputies' Soviets took place on 23-31 January 1918. Per the July 1918 Soviet Constitution, each urban (and usually pro-Bolshevik) Soviet had 1 delegate per 25,000 voters. Each rural (usually pro-SR) Soviet was only allowed 1 delegate per 125,000 voters.

How were the delegates appointed at the time of the Third Congress, that is before the Constitution.
