SERGEY LAZO

Sergey Lazo was a Bolshevik leader during the October Revolution who was active in the Russian Far East, and would later command the Red Army in the Vladivostok region against invading American forces. The Bolsheviks managed to take power in Vladivostok in early 1920 but a few months later, Japanese troops captured Lazo and his fellow commanders, eventually leading to his disappearance.
