    The historians tell that the Lebedev died in China in 1928 year, but it's not a true:



    Lebedev Dmitry Antonovich (1883-1926) the Colonel (1917). The General-major (11.1918)
    .

    Siberian military school (1900)
    Mihailov artillery school (1903)
    Nikolaev academy of the Generall Staff (1911).
    The participant of the Japanese war 1904-1905.
    Aprill, 22, 1915 awarded with 4- St George cross for Zimgrod defencive operation
    A member of the Main committee of the Union of officers , 1917
    Arrested by Red's in Nov 13, 1917, run out from prison, then join Kornilov's army, sent out to Kolchack's army to Siberia
    18 November 1918 year - Kommander and the head of general stuff of Kolchack's army in Siberia
    6 January 1919 General-Major
    23 Mai 1919- military Minster
    12 August 1919 lose his minister's rank after Cheljabinsk operation fall
    As a story tell's: the General Lebedev emigrate to China and died there.
    But it's no way- he go back to Estonia in 1920 an served in Estonian army in the same rank of General-Major
    Professor of tactical offence 1921-1926 till his death in 1926 year( after the wounds recieved in WW1 ).
    Historicans would opearate with this story, that he died in 1928 in China, but it's not a true- look at the pictures, when the Lebedev i being worn a M26 Estonian uniform and the same face in WW1
