RUSSIAN MILITARY POST NEAR THE VILLAGE OF MAUKA. ABOUT THE NAME, PLACE AND TIME OF ITS FOUNDATION

The Sakhalin regional museum of Local lore hosted a presentation of a publication devoted to the solution of historical questions about the Maukski (Malkovsky) Russian military post.

"The Russian military post near the village of Mauka. About the name, place and time of its foundation" is a new publication from the series "Objects of cultural heritage of the Sakhalin region. Its presentation took place at the Sakhalin regional museum of local lore on 24 September together with the State inspection for protection of cultural heritage objects of the Sakhalin region.

The brochure is devoted to the history of the Maukski (Malkovsky) Russian military post, which is still listed as two different places of interest in the register of cultural heritage. One is "the place of founding in 1870 of Malkovsky Russian military post," located in the city of Tomari. The second is "The place of establishment in 1870 of the Maukski Russian military post" in Kholmsk. However, during the research the authors of the publication came to the conclusion that both of these sites have no relation to the real location of the Russian military post.

Careful analysis of the sources allowed us to get precise answers to the questions of where and when the Maukski  (Malkovsky) Russian military post was founded. This event took place on May 21, 1870. (Old style). On the bank of the Poro-Tomari river (now the Malka river). The authors of the study are Evgeniya Aleksandrovna Pashentseva, head of the history department of the Sakhalin regional museum of  Local lore, and Pavel Anatolyevich Pashentsev, researcher of the small innovative enterprise of Sakhalin state university "SakhGU surveyor". In their publication, the authors trace the entire chain of events since the founding of the said post and explain the confusion that has arisen over time. 

The military posts were the first russian settlements on Sakhalin in the middle of the 19th century. They were established to increase russian influence during the period of joint ownership of the island by Russia and Japan. Many military posts later ceased to exist; some became settlements or post points.

The history of russian military posts on Sakhalin was studied in the post-war period. This was connected to the work of the regional administration on renaming the settlements and geographic sites of southern Sakhalin and the Kuril islands. In the last decade, island researchers have published new materials and little known documents covering this period.
