GSNKh

// ГCНX // Губернский Совет народного хозяйства // Gubernskii sovet narodnogo khozaiistva // Provincial Council of National Economy

The Provincial Economic Council of National Economy, or Gubsovnarkhoz, was created in 1917 to replace Tsarist-era elected councils or zemstvos.  GSNKh was the local, province-supported council of the Supreme Soviet of the National Economy (VSNKh) that oversaw the USSR's economic industrial management.  During the Russian Civil War, the GSNKh managed industry and supply committees for the Bolsheviks.  It also had its own supply, distribution, production, and labor protection departments.
