During the Russian Civil War he has led the Ukrainian White Uprising of December 1918 and after that he became Provisional Governor of Ukraine under the jurisdiction of the Supreme Imperial Russian Provisional Government commonly known as "The White Movement". The Army of Malyshev together with the Volunteer Army formed the Armed Forces of South Russia, the largest Army of the White Movement made up of former Russian Citizens. Fallowing the temporary displacement of Kolchak the Siberian Government left the Supreme Imperial Russian Provisional Government making Southern Russia the main bastion of the Russian Monarchy in Russia. In 1922 with supplies and help from the Central European Federation, Romania, Germany and secretly France the Southern Army organized the Great Offensive of 1922. The Russian Soviet Republic weakened from the Bolshevik-Menshevik crisis was defeated by the white army. Siberia came back under the Imperial Flag later and by 1924 Russia was united again.
