SR (Jewish) Combat Organization

Holodomor AvatarThe Combat Organization (or the Fighting Organization) was meant to be the military branch within the Social Revolutionary Party of Russia. However, in reality it was a terror sub-group founded by Grigory Gershuni also in 1902 with full autonomy from the main Party. This was the group responsible for the assassination of Dmitry Sipyagin, the Minister of Interior, in April 1902, the attempted assassinate of Prince Ivan Mikhailovich Obolensky, the Governor of Kharkov, in July 1902 and the assassination of N. M. Bogdanovich, the Governor of Ufa, in May 1903.
