The Red Army was the armed force first organized by the Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War in 1918 and, in 1922, became the army of the Soviet Union. After World War II, it was officially renamed the Soviet Army.

The Workers' Councils of the Ruhr also formed a Red Army in 1920 to confront the Kapp Putsch. Its maximum strength was about 50,000.
