Kiev Arsenal January Uprising
Kiev Arsenal January Uprising, sometimes called simply the January Uprising or the January Rebellion ( _uk. Січневе повстання), was the
Bolshevikorganized worker's armed revolt that started on January 29, 1918at the Kiev Arsenal factory.
Agitated by the
Bolsheviks, workers of the factory organized the uprising (some say " mutiny") against the Ukrainian Tsentral'na Radato support the Red Armyformation headed by Yuri Kotsyubynskythat was approaching the city at the time. Ukrainian troops loyal to the Rada besieged and shelled the compound. The uprising helped Bolshevik forces to storm the city and finally gain the control over it.
This event is generally regarded as "class-motivated" by the historians similarly to other worker's movements of Russia at the time.
To commemorate the event, the historic defensive wall of the Arsenal factory bearing the traces of shelling was preserved by Soviet authorities on the city's
Moskovska Street(near the Arsenalna metro station). The nearby street named to the event during the Soviettimes carries this name ( Sichnevogo Povstannya Street) to this day.
