Balagansk
October 5, 1920
A gang of whites, numbering 27 people, arrived at Tagna at 2 am on September 9–10 of this year. and spent the whole night in the fight against the police, which she repeatedly tried to disarm by all means, but every time she met stubborn resistance from the police.
When there was no success in shooting, White entered into negotiations with the police, offering it to surrender, while launching a provocation such as the power of the Soviets fell from Chelyabinsk to Irkutsk. And this last circumstance did not affect the police, who only replied that she did not believe the bandits and did not agree to surrender.
Early in the morning, after dawn, the Whites staged a rally in which they spoke for the zemstvo, calling themselves the true champions of the Zemstvo. The bandits were invited by the assembly to overthrow the revolutionary committee and elect a zemstvo, which they would come and check the next day. At the meeting, the gangsters called on the peasants to fight against the Communists, for whom in no case should they carry out a distribution.

The population was kindly to the gang of whites. It turned out the following way, namely.When the gang of white left Tagna, the police began to pursue the whites on the trail. Having put on white sleeves and under the guise of whites coming to the villages, they organized meetings.

Intelligence report of the headquarters of the 26th separate rifle brigade of the VNUS troops.
On the night of October 15-16, a gang of whites numbering about one hundred attacked the village of Dmitrievka of Cheremkhovsky Uezd, hacked down two agitators there, broke up and torn everything inside the executive committee, took away some warm clothes and two horses from the peasants and went on to Chedan.
At this time, a partisan detachment was sent from the station Zalari under the command of Comrade. Smolin numbering about forty people. The detachment caught up with the gang near Babugai village and came across reconnaissance of the enemy, from which six people were killed, one ensign and one bailiff were killed, after which the detachment came under fire from the gang and one policeman was killed from the detachment.
After an exchange of fire, the detachment sent intelligence. It turned out that the gang was going deep into the taiga, and there they found their huts that were burned. Then a special squad arrived, and they joined together and went deep into the taiga to pursue the gang. Currently, they returned, but without results: the gang was not found.

From 19 on the night of October 20, at ten o'clock in the evening, the village of Golumet was attacked by a number of gangs, according to the stories of the Golouti military commissar, at 150. When members of the executive committee left the village, they came under fire from a gang, and a policeman was killed.
I called in our detachment standing at Zalari station, which was half a time late. Upon his arrival, a detachment of 475 people from Irkutsk also arrived here, including one hundred and twenty horsemen, who undertook to perform the entire operation, and our detachment moved to Zabituy station so that the gang could not break through to the railway.
A special squad went around the village of Golumet. Several small detachments were sent to him, as a result of which they surrounded the village of Golumet, but not with a tight ring. October 24 at 3 o'clock in the afternoon Golumet took our troops. The enemy quietly passed between the swamps and went into the taiga. The pursuit continues.
The number of the gang was three hundred and fifty people, including thirty officers. With them there are four machine guns, but there are few cartridges. A gang of 11 people who were sympathetic to the Soviet power was shot in Goloumeti. They took our guard detachment of five people, and one Red Army man sent to communicate with the guards found brutally hacked to pieces. Most of the residents, taking their families, left with a gang, abandoning their property and household.
In general, in the area of ​​the 10th battalion from Irkutsk to Tyret it is not entirely safe. In different regions, from the railway, 30–40 miles away, there are outbreaks of local peasants, set up by local kulaks on the basis of distribution and mobilization.
Measures to destroy both gangs and various outbreaks are taken by the Irkutsk sponge and the county government. The intelligence agent of the 110th battalion keeps a sharp eye on its enemies and works, but the main brake on the work is the lack of experienced comrades. The mood of the peasants is split;part of the Soviet power, fists and their patrons - against.
In the areas of the 133rd and 33rd battalions, so far calmly, with the exception of the grumbling mood of the peasants.

From the Protocol of the interdepartmental meeting of representatives of the governing bodies of the Irkutsk province
Irkutsk
October 21, 1920
Until now, despite repeated orders of the Central Committee of the party, the Communist comrades were not accomplices in the work of the special departments of the Cheka, why these bodies were not fully informed about the situation of the province.
On this sad fact com. Alekseev pays the utmost attention to this meeting and asks in the future to accurately and possibly provide more detailed information to both the special department and the sponge where all informational reports will be coordinated and appropriate measures taken.
Speaker Comrade. Zhukovets, who is talking about the ongoing mobilization in the district and that there was desertion when announcing the mobilization of non-commissioned officers, that cases of counterrevolution were found, where the agitators sent were inexperienced and could not approach the peasants when they announced the mobilization of horses and bread distribution.
The counter-revolution also could not pass by the feast of the Intercession. On this day, all of Siberia began to celebrate. Prior to the holiday, the peasantry at rallies passed a certain resolution with a resolution that the mobilized should go with their outfit.

When the holiday was over, they did not even give a single mobilized one from these very localities, and there are also cases when the sent agitators for this or that mobilization do not have time to leave one city or village, as to another they already know why this man is coming.
There was a case when D. Khomutovo and Khomutov volost refused to give completely mobilized. Volvoenkoma are powerless, before this everyone carried out resolutions at meetings also about the need to go to everyone, but the peasants, as has already been the case, say that down with Soviet power.
In view of such circumstances, I gave an order to the volunteer military committees that unless they take and deliver the mobilized, they will sit down for them, and those are forced to take the persons to be mobilized at night. The facts are also observed that the peasants take an iron stove from the village and go to the taiga, where they know the definitely hiding gangs, which they may be joining.
By sending a batch of 170 people, I have already received information that out of this number, the expensive 120 people have disappeared, and it must also be assumed that there are also some operating gangs in those areas. The mobilized Cheremhovsky and Balagansky districts deserted.

In view of all this, it is necessary to fight, and this struggle with them must be taken now in order to catch the element that is dangerous for us at the present time. And this will have to be done before the onset of the winter period and snow, until the connection has been broken.
Desertion from army units was reduced, so in August there were only 4%.
Tov. Pechenev says that all the peasantry to the implementation of the distribution is negative and at public gatherings said publicly that there is nothing to the parasites. In the Murinsky parish of the Irkutsk district, where many different elements are hiding, the police cannot fight, as there are very few party comrades, and the majority consists of former Kolchak members, and there is no way to throw them away because there is no one to replace them.
Tov. Velikoseltsev says that scouts were sent by me to area d.... who made their way there, and at first the peasants treated them incredulously, began to ask who they were, but when they said they were deserters, everything appeared for them, and the former Kolchak captain serves as a clerk in this village. The peasants sent them to enter the gangster detachment, which is located 18 miles from this village.
Chairman Alekseev
