FACTS & FIGURES

Shortly after the Bolsheviks seizure of power in Petrograd in November 1917, the Baku Soviet was established in Baku, Azerbaijan. The Soviet seized power in Baku in April 1918 after a bloody ethnic confrontation with the Muslim population, known as the March Days. The Baku Soviet created an executive organ, the Council of People's Commissars, formed by an alliance of Bolsheviks and left socialist revolutionaries (SRs). It was presided by an ethnic Armenian, Stepan Shaumyan, a Bolshevik revolutionary and close ally of V. Lenin. This short-lived government was known as the Baku Commune. 

On July 26, 1918, the Bolshevik government resigned when a majority of the Baku Soviet, led by the coalition of dashnaks (Armenian nationalist and socialist party), right SRs, and Mensheviks, voted to invite the British troops to defend the city against the advancing Turkish troops. On July 31 resigned Bolshevik commissars attempted the evacuation of Bolshevik armed troops by sailing over the Caspian Sea to Astrakhan, but the ships were captured by the new government, known as Centro-Caspian Dictatorship. About 30 commissars were arrested and imprisoned under charges of embezzlement and treason.
