Annotation

The paper presents the study of the formation process of the Red Cross activities in the Russian Far East. The process in question mainly included the organization of the local Red Cross branches, gathering funds for emergency cases – wars and disasters – and training of sisters of Charity. The paper posits that the lack of attention from the General Directorate as well as the Far Eastern society resulted in a relatively low capacity of the local Red Cross activities.

        Key words: Russian Red Cross Society, donation, sister of charity, the Far East, the Amur Governor-General.
