On the 3rd of June they held a reconstruction of Russian Civil War in Chernogolovka, the Moscow region. Look at some photos of the event.
In the end of May 1918 the peaceful period of the revolution was interrupted and Civil war began. It was the great tragedy in the history of Russian people.
The tragic aftermath of the war became separation of the people into “ours” and “others”, depreciation of a human life, collapse of the national economy. Not so much important who won, the main victim of the war became the people.
The reconstruction was devoted to the events of May-June 1919, notably the decisive attack of the Armed Frces of the Russian South and capturing of the Donetsk Basin and Kharkiv. The success of the White army of the Russian South initiated the attack of Moscow in July-August 1919.

Battle in the village
The cut-throat armed fight lasted for 5 years and the Bolsheviks managed to keep the power in their hands.
They paid ultimately high price for the victory. Russia lost more than 12 million people, the military loss from both sides were only 800 thousand. Others died of terror, hunger, deseases, several millions of people just escaped from the country.
