Sinkiang(or known as Xinjiang)is a landlocked Communist country in central Asia that is home to a large number of Muslim Uyghurs. Sinkiang is bordered by The USSR in the north and northwest, Mongolia to the northeast, Afghanistan to the south west,the British Raj and Tibet to the south, and Xibei San Ma to the east.

Historical Background[edit]

In 1912, the Qing dynasty was replaced by the Republic of Flag of China China. Yuan Dahua, the last Qing governor of Flag of Sinkiang Sinkiang, fled. One of his subordinates, Yang Zengxin, took control of the province and acceded in name to the Republic of China in March of the same year. Through Machiavellian politics and clever balancing of mixed ethnic constituencies, Yang maintained control over Sinkiang until his assassination in 1928 after the Northern Expedition of the Kuomintang.

The Kumul Rebellion and other rebellions arose against his successor Jin Shuren in the early 1930s throughout Sinkiang, involving Uyghurs, other Turkic groups, and Hui (Muslim) Chinese. Jin drafted White Russians to crush the revolt. In the Kashgar region on November 12, 1933, the short-lived self-proclaimed First East Turkistan Republic was declared, after some debate over whether the proposed independent state should be called "East Turkestan" or "Uyghuristan".The region claimed by the ETR in theory encompassed Kashgar, Khotan and Aqsu prefectures in southwestern Sinkiang. The Chinese Muslim Kuomintang 36th Division (National Revolutionary Army) destroyed the army of the First East Turkestan Republic at the Battle of Kashgar (1934), bringing the Republic to an end after the Chinese Muslims executed the two Emirs of the Republic, Abdullah Bughra and Nur Ahmad Jan Bughra. The Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union invaded the province in the Soviet Invasion of Sinkiang. In the Sinkiang War (1937), the entire province was brought under the control of northeast Manchu warlord Sheng Shicai, who ruled Sinkiang for the next decade with close support from the Soviet Union, many of whose ethnic and security policies Sheng instituted in Sinkiang. The Soviet Union maintained a military base in Sinkiang and had several military and economic advisors deployed in the region. Sheng invited a group of Chinese Communists to Sinkiang, including Mao Zedong's brother Mao Zemin, but in 1943, fearing a conspiracy, Sheng executed them all, including Mao Zemin. In 1944, then the President and Premier of China Chiang Kai-shek, was informed of Shicai's intention of joining the Soviet Union by Soviets, decided to shift him out of Sinkiang to Chongqing as the Minister of Agriculture and Forest. More than one decade of Sheng's era had stopped. However, a short-lived Soviet-backed Second East Turkestan Republic was established in that year, which lasted until 1949 in what is now Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture (Ili, Tarbagatay and Altay Districts) in northern Sinkiang.
