However, the conflicts between the peasantry and the state’s pricing policy created a sale crisis in 1927–1928 that was temporarily solved by harsh, repressive measures against those peasants who did not agree to deliver grain at the low fixed prices. Stalin and other party leaders led expeditions to various parts of the country and forced peasants to sell more grain or face being accused of ‘speculation’, a crime under the Soviet penal code. This so-called Urals-Siberian method of forced grain deliveries in the winter of 1928 recreated the situation that had prevailed under ‘war communism’ during the Civil War.

One all-encompassing plan was called ‘The Greater Urals’ (Bolshoi Ural) and was designed to incorporate many of the proposals from earlier business ventures, electrification plans and the latest draft of the five-year plan for the region. It was discussed in September 1929 and approved in April 1930. ‘On the tasks for Uralmet’, a decision by the Communist Party’s Central Committee on 15 May 1930, refers to this decision and the ‘Greater Urals’ plan was finally approved by the 16th All-union Communist Congress in 1930.

The largest peasant army in the Cheliabinsk guberniia called itself the Blue Army and had approximately 50,000 soldiers, mainly from Cossack villages in the south. However, they did not present well-organised military formations and the Red Army and Cheka units were easily able to pacify the region. The Cheka sentenced 143 rebellious peasants, 60 of whom were to be executed and the rest sent to prisons. Cheliabinsk’s prisons, referred to as ‘correction houses’ after the revolution, accommodated 10,097 prisoners in 1920.
