A decree of March 1919 placed the Bolshevik Party in control of all consumer cooperatives. In January 1920, the cooperatives were merged into a single union called the "consumers' collectives". In 1921, the government formed the All-Russian Union of Villagers (Sel'skosoiuz) and in 1922 it formed the All-Russian Union of Industrial Cooperatives (Vsekopromsoiuz).
