Kolchak, a naval officer, supported the Provisional Government and especially its pro-war position. He vehemently opposed the Bolsheviks and after the October revolution, the defeated Kerensky appointed Kolchak as Supreme Ruler of the Russian state. In that capacity, he gathered a counter revolutionary army (Whites). However, he was captured by the Red Army and executed by the Bolshevik government in February 1920.
