Nestor Makhno was a Ukranian revolutionary who led a revolutionary war for survival against the White Army and the Red Army under the ideals of Anarcho-Communism from 1918 to 1920. He believed in the ideal of a 'Soviet' but refused to align with the Red Army, which was trying to consolidate its power over the former Tsarist Empire while fighting the White Counter-revolutionaries.
Makhno created an Anarchist Society in Ukraine and at his peak had millions of people in the area the Anarchists controlled. He briefly aligned himself with the Red Army to beat the White Army before being finally crushed by the Red Army. However, under his banner, Anarchism had been put into action in Ukraine and a different type of Society had been created, a model different from both Marxism/Leninism of 'October Revolution' Russia and the Capitalist Imperalism of the West.
