The Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the Soviet Union (Russian ? ? ?) was created in 1924 by the Supreme Court of the Soviet Union as a court for the higher military and political personnel of the Red Army and Fleet.[1] In addition it was an immediate supervisor of military tribunals and the supreme authority of military appeals.

During 1926-1948 the Chairman of the Collegium was Vasili Ulrikh.[2]

The role of the Military Collegium drastically changed after June 1934, when it was assigned the duty to consider cases that fell under Article 58, counter-revolutionary activity.

During the Great Purge of 1937-1938 the Military Collegium tried relatively prominent figures, usually based on the lists approved personally by Joseph Stalin[3], the majority of Article 58 cases having been processed extrajudicially by NKVD Troikas. In particular, the Military Collegium conducted the major Soviet show trials.[4]

The Collegium was also involved in subsequent trials of Polish General Leopold Okulicki, the last commander of the Polish Home Army, and Jan Jankowski, Polish government delegate.[5]
