From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The People's Secretariat of Ukraine was the executive body of the Provisional Central Executive Committee of Soviets in Ukraine. It was formed in Kharkiv on December 30, 1917 by the Russian and other local bilshovyks as the Ukrainian Soviet government and the opposition to the Central Rada and the General Secretariat of Ukraine. The Central Executive Committee that was elected by the First All-Ukrainian Congress of Soveits canceled the declaration of independence, declared that Ukraine is in a federal subordination to the Russian SFSR, and called on to fight against the separatists, the Ukrainian Central Rada and the General Secretariat of Ukraine.



Later also were added Ya.Martyanov (secretary of Postal and Telegraph), Georgiy Lapchinsky (head of government affairs), and Ivan Klymenko. On March 7, 1918 the Secretariat of Military Affairs was reformed into the triumvirate as the Petrograd sovnarkom and included Volodymyr Antonov and Yevhen Neronovych.

Although the government had its own Secretariat of Internal Affairs the state security was conducted by the All-Russian Extraordinary Committee.
