The Battle of Kazan was the first battle of the Second Russian Civil War, taking place in Kazan, Russia, in June 2020. It lasted about a day. The engagement was between the attacking White Army troops and the defending Red Ground Forces. Attackers numbered to 26,000 while there were 13,000 Communist defenders. Initially successful, Communist troops were pushed back over the course of the day. By evening, the remaining Communist forces scattered throughout the city, with General Alexander Kozhin's 1,200 soldiers at the Kazan Federal University. Leading a final charge, Kozhin and his men were the last to fall.
