​Command of the Northwestern Army in summer 1919. In the middle front, General Nikolai Yudenich with his arms crossed; left, Major General Aleksander Rodzianko. By mid-1919, the Northwestern Army, together with its supporters in Western Europe, tried to overcome conflicts with Estonia and to keep Estonia at war with Soviet Russia by assembling the Russian Northwestern Government that recognised Estonian independence. This step had no real results, but it eased the relations between the Whites and the Estonians.
