Abstract


The Brest peace treaty between Soviet Russia and Germany appeared controversy to some Russian entrepreneurs in the spring-summer of 1918. Entrepreneurial associations of central Russia decided to cooperate with Bolsheviks, who had concluded the separate treaty with Germany. The members of these organizations did not trust to stability of new regime and hoped by way of compromise to preserve their business. The businessmen, who have found themselves on the German's controlled territories, assumed pro-German orientation in hope to develop the commercial and industrial affaires. The entrepreneurial organizations in the East of the country were in favor of keeping of their obligations towards alliesе.
