Author Code: RBSV

Born: Jan. 31, 1879 - Kharkiv, Ukraine

Died: May 7, 1925 - Moscow, Russia

Initially educated in law at St. Petersburg University, Savinkov was expelled for taking part in student riots in 1899. In 1901, he was arrested and exiled, but escaped abroad in 1903. He joined the SRP (Socialist Revolutionary Party) and became Deputy Head of its Combat Organisation. In 1906 he assassinated the Russian Minister of the Interior, von Plehve, and participated in the assassination of Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich. He was sentenced to death, but managed again to escape.In 1908, he became Head of the Fighting Organisation. He joined the French Army and saw action during the First World War. He returned to Russia in 1917 and became Deputy War Minister under Kerensky. Taking part in the Kornilov coup led him to being expelled from the SRP. Savinkov organised several uprisings against the Bolsheviks, but returned to France after their failure. He moved to Poland during the Polish-Bolshevik war in 1919. He returned to Russia and befriended Sidney Reilly, the British spy. He was arrested and again sentenced to death, but the sentence was commuted to 10 years. He presumably committed suicide by jumping from a window, but was more likely murdered by the OGPU. His works include The Pale Horse (1909), What Never Happened (1912), Memoirs of a Terrorist (1917) and The Black Horse (1923).
