Georgy Oppokov

(Afanasi Lomov)


A member of the Bolshevik Party Central Committee and the Supreme Council of National Economy (Vesenkha), he also became Commissar for Justice in the Council of People's Commissars (Sovnarkom). When the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk was finally signed he, along with Bukharin, Bubnov and Uritsky, resigned all his government and party posts. In the 1920s, Oppokov became for a time a member of the Left Opposition. Like most prominent Bolshevik leaders of 1917 he was arrested in June 1937 during the Great Purges. He was sentenced to death and shot on 30 December 1938. He was posthumously rehabilitated in 1956.
