After the elimination of the White Guardist threat in February, a coalition government was formed between the two democratic parties. This was supported by the city population, peasants, and, for a while, the Bolsheviks. The Bolsheviks were the true fighting spirit and had the largest number of armed personnel. Soon, the Bolsheviks wanted to remove the other two parties so as to form a Soviet government for all of Siberia. The new government, fearing the Bolsheviks, asked for assistance from the Red Army to secure the peace of the town. Two days later, the Bolsheviks attacked.
