The Kuban Republic Cossack Government was created in October 1917, and in the spring of 1918 it declared its independence from the RSFSR. General Deniken recognised the government as a valid independent territory on 28 August 1918, and it remained more or less in place until his army was forced to evacuate Novorossisk on 27 March 1920.
A number of valid and postally used stamps were issued during this time period. Scott lists these issues in a separate country entry for "South Russia" (stamps numbered 20-49). SG and Michel both have a section.
